It has just been announced that Cuphead will be coming to Nintendo Switch in April.
Cuphead is a classic run and gun action game with heavy focus on boss battles. The game features 30s inspired visuals and is even animated using hand drawn cell animation to maintain authenticity. Play as Cuphead or Mugman (in single player or local co-op) as you traverse strange worlds, acquire new weapons, learn powerful super moves, and discover hidden secrets while you try to pay your debt back to the devil.

“It’s no secret that Cuphead is a direct descendent of retro action games like Contra on the NES, so it’s surreal to finally have one of our own games on a Nintendo system,” said Studio MDHR Co-Director Chad Moldenhauer. “We’re beyond thrilled to be able to bring Cuphead to a brand new audience on Nintendo Switch. Playing the game on a console with such a big focus on local co-op really reminds Jared and I of our days gaming together as kids.”
Cuphead will launch on Nintendo Switch on 18th April and is available to pre-order now.
