During Nintendo’s Nindie presentation today, the company announced that Microsoft and Studio MDHR will be bringing the indie 2D platformer, Cuphead, to the Nintendo Switch on April 18. The title is now available for pre-purchase on the Switch eShop.
Cuphead was originally developed as a Microsoft exclusive when it launched back in 2017 for Xbox One and PC, but with this announcement, Cuphead will joining the 1000+ titles now available on the Nintendo Switch eShop.
“Cuphead is a classic run and gun action game heavily focused on boss battles. Inspired by cartoons of the 1930s, the visuals and audio are painstakingly created with the same techniques of the era, i.e. traditional hand-drawn cel animation, watercolor backgrounds, and original jazz recordings.
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!”
