How to Play Multiplayer With Friends in Cuphead
Cuphead is a very challenging game, but sometimes all you need is a friend to make life just a bit easier. Thankfully, Cuphead makes it easy to play local multiplayer. The game has drop-in/drop-out cooperative play.
All you need to do is plug in a second controller, turn it on, and press any button. This will prompt a sign-in screen (you can just choose guest if you need to). Once that’s done, the second player will now be in control of Mugman, Cuphead’s brother. They’ll also have some coins to spend (equal to the amount you’ve collected in the game so far), so don’t forget to take them shopping for some items that can really help the both of you out.
If you’re looking to play online, unfortunately we have some bad news. For the time being, Cuphead only has couch co-op that has players share a screen. Hopefully, online play will be integrated in the future, but until then you need a flesh and blood partner (or a robot, we don’t judge) if you want to see the brothers in action together.
This should make going through the game a little bit easier.
