We’ve reported about the surprising news of Cuphead coming to Nintendo Switch during the next few hours.
Anyway, things are not limited to the new version of the game releasing on April 18, 2019 for the Switch, as shared by Studio MDHR.
The indie developer is indeed releasing a new update for existing Xbox One and PC versions, which is set to improve the current game a lot.
You’ll have the opportunity to play in new languages (Italian, yay!) and play as Mugman in the single-player mode.
On top of that, you’ll also enjoy several optimizations in terms of gameplay, which are improving, for example, loading times.
Here’s the quick rundown as provided by OnMSFT:
- Mugman, Cuphead’s sidekick will be playable in single-player mode.
- StudioMDHR has created new art for the game with fully animated cut scenes, new special effects, and more.
- Cuphead has been fully localised in 10 new languages: French, Italian, German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Polish, Russian, Japanese, Korean, and Simplified Chinese.
- StudioMDHR also did some optimizations to reduce loading times and shrink the game’s size on Xbox One. Future patches should also be much smaller.
The update is also releasing on April 18, and will be followed later this year by The Delicious Last Course paid DLC.
