UPDATE 21/3/19: The Nintendo Switch version of Cuphead will receive its Xbox Live integration via a post-launch update, Microsoft has said.
It's been nearly a year since Cuphead's release, and in that time lots of people have found the game to be just their cup of tea. Three million people, in fact.
In a blog post, developer Studio MDHR announced it has shifted an incredible three million copies in the 10 months since Cuphead's launch. To celebrate this achievement, the game is on sale on Xbox and Steam - so if you haven't yet put yourself through the pain of a Cuphead boss battle, you can now do it at a discount.
The run and gun game, which was praised for its unique hand-painted 1930s style animations, originally sold over 1m units in its first two weeks - so this latest update is perhaps unsurprising. This also isn't the last we'll see of the game, as a new DLC for Cuphead called The Delicious Last Course is due to be released in 2019 - although the exact date is yet to be confirmed. The DLC will introduce a brand new playable character called Ms. Chalice, who looks like the sassiest cup I ever did see.
More Cuphead is coming next year, and developer Studio MDHR has offered a brief tease in the form of a new trailer.
In the two weeks since it launched on PC and Xbox One, gloriously fiendish run-and-gunner Cuphead has sold over one million copies, developer Studio MDHR has announced.
"Cuphead has only been out for two weeks and we never could have dreamed of the reception we've received from our amazing fans", the developer said in a post earlier today. "We wanted to take a moment to thank each and every one of you for your support and we're excited to share that Cuphead has gone platinum with over 1 million units sold!"
Cuphead's impressive sales milestone places it in the relatively exclusive ranks of other million-plus-selling indie hits, such as Rocket League, Stardew Valley, Undertale, Super Meat Boy, Prison Architect, Braid, Don't Starve, and Minecraft. Not bad company to keep at all.
Not sure if you have heard, but Cuphead is apparently pretty difficult to play. So why not have a bit of fun with it instead? That's certainly what speedrunner PeekyBoo has done, beating every boss in the game using only a Dance Dance Revolution mat.
When Studio MDHR's marvellously frantic toon shooter Cuphead finally released on Xbox One and PC last Friday, two things immediately became clear: it's a truly beautiful piece of work, exquisitely nailing its 1930s cartoon aesthetic, and it's hilariously difficult to boot.
Cuphead will never come out on PlayStation 4, its developer has confirmed.
Classic cartoon platformer Cuphead has, at long last, got a release date.
It's due 29th September on Xbox One and Windows 10. Microsoft just showed a spanking new trailer during its Xbox E3 2017 press briefing - watch it below.
It's about time!
1930s animation-inspired platformer Cuphead has been delayed until mid-2017 on Xbox One and PC.
