Cuphead is coming to Nintendo Switch next month

Indie games make up a crucial and vibrant part of the Switch's great library of games, as evidenced by yesterday's Nindies showcase.

Details on Cuphead's Switch port are obviously still light since it was just announced, but Studio MDHR did say today that you'll be able to play as both Cuphead and Mugman either in single-player or through local co-op. Indeed, one aspect of these rumors suggests that a number of Microsoft games will release on Switch, which has obviously been confirmed today. Playing the game on a console with such a big focus on local co-op really reminds Jared and I of days gaming together as kids. But, according to The Verge, the run-and-gun platformer will be unleashed upon the Nintendo Switch servers, with Xbox Live Support promised in the months following its re-introduction on April 18th. "The diversity of indie content we discussed today demonstrates how Nintendo Switch players can find quality indie games of almost any type". Its Xbox Live features will appear as a "post-launch update".


It seems like online multiplayer may be powered by Xbox Live on Nintendo Switch when it comes to Cuphead.

StudioMDHR also did some optimizations to reduce loading times and shrink the game's size on Xbox One. In addition, Cuphead has been recognized with a wide range of awards including the 2017 Annie Award for Special Achievement in Animation, and Best Art Direction, Best Independent Game and Best Debut Game at The Game Awards 2017.


Originally released in 2017, Cuphead earned an 8.8 from IGN.
