Cuphead is coming to Nintendo Switch next month

22 March 2019

Cuphead will be available for the Switch on April 18, and is now available for pre-purchase.

Update: The event is now over, and as expected, it brought word on a whole lot of Switch games. Right at the beginning of the show, Nintendo announced that Cuphead will be coming to the Switch. Should Nintendo now look into adding Cuphead and Mugman to Super Smash Bros.

Moldenhauer also threw some praise at Nintendo themselves for the port. Studio MDHR worked in collaboration with Nintendo's Nindie team when questions arose, and Moldenhauer said Nintendo was always very quick to respond. This would seem to suggest that certain Switch games will be able to share their online scores across other platforms with the help of Xbox Live.

Furthermore, it has been confirmed that Xbox Live features will be brought to this new version of Cuphead, which means that Xbox Live achievements will be available to those playing the game on Switch.

Cuphead coming to the Switch was a surprise to many, many Nintendo and Microsoft fans.

The game was first introduced to the public as a Microsoft-exclusive, through Xbox One, and to PC users. You play as Hue, who must explore this odd new world filled with intelligent tribes and find a new home for your people.

Cuphead was previously rumored for the system earlier this year when reports of Xbox Game Pass coming to Switch surfaced. Preorders will be available on the Nintendo Switch eShop beginning today.
