Cuphead is coming to Nintendo Switch next month

Cuphead First Impressions Gorgeous but Difficult

Cuphead is just the latest tete-a-tete in the unexpectedly cozy relationship between Nintendo and Microsoft, and the first revealed in yesterday's Nindies showcase. Today, Studio MDHR announced that its game will land on Nintendo Switch on April 18.

Cuphead has sold over three million units across Xbox One and PC. There's a Cuphead release for Switch. If you already know you want to pick up Cuphead on the Switch, you can pre-purchase it beginning today on the eShop, though at the time of this writing, the game's listing doesn't seem to be live.

Here is the Cuphead Nintendo Switch trailer.

A post on the Xbox Wire corroborates this info, with Microsoft saying that they'll "be working with StudioMDHR to implement Xbox Live features into Cuphead on the Nintendo Switch in the coming months".

Cuphead will be available for the Switch on April 18, and is now available for pre-purchase. Among the highlights is a Switch version of Cuphead, a new game from Double Fine called Rad, and a Zelda-themed successor to Crypt of the NecroDancer called Cadence of Hyrule. In fact, its unique retro cartoon art style is arguably worth the price of admission alone. Interestingly, Nintendno announced "Cuphead" will have Xbox Live support, too. That might be a bit of wishful thinking, but we'll keep an eye out for more details regardless.
