Cuphead Nintendo Switch trailer in keeping with cool 1930s style
Video game developer Studio MDHR has just announced Cuphead and its gorgeous 1930s animation style is coming to the Nintendo Switch.
They did that with a cool Cuphead Nintendo Switch trailer in keeping with the game’s 1930s style theme.
It will hit store shelves on April 18th, pre-orders are up now and fans are going crazy. Especially as the game is getting an expansion — The Delicious Last Course — later on in the year.
As the obviously thrilled developer says about the upcoming Cuphead Nintendo Switch release:
Since the launch of our little cartoon adventure, we’ve been floored by the warmth and support from our players. From heartfelt letters to amazing artwork, our fans across Xbox and PC have been the best we could’ve asked for and we’re excited to bring even more fans into the Cuphead community.
So we’re thrilled to announce that on April 18th our pugilistic platformer Cuphead is indeed coming to Nintendo Switch™! Pickup and play solo on the go, grab a friend and play co-op with two Joy-Cons™, or dock your Switch and experience all the thrills from the comfort of your living room. The choice is yours!
Cuphead was released on PC and Xbox One in September, 2017 and has received accolades for its beautiful animation and for the game’s difficulty.
Since then, it has won a huge number of awards, including “Best Xbox One Game” in Destructoid‘s Game of the Year Awards 2017, and “Best Xbox One Game” and “Best Art Direction” in IGN’s Best of 2017 Awards.
The run and gun video game also picked up awards from Giant Bomb for “Best Looking Game” and “Best Style”, “Best Debut” at the Game Developers Choice Awards and awards for “Excellence in Animation” and “Excellence in Art” at the SXSW Gaming Awards.
It either won or was nominated for almost 40 other awards. Pretty amazing for the debut game from a small indie studio.
No wonder Nintendo Switch players are desperate to get their hands on the game.

I have spent far more hours playing Cuphead than I would like to admit (yep, I get my ass kicked a lot) and do not regret a second of it. Because, even when I died — a lot — I was still delightedly laughing at how cool the gameplay is.
Think you will probably feel the same way.
