Cuphead fans have been waiting years to go hands-on with the Delicious Last Course, an upcoming content expansion for the game. This DLC will launch on June 30th, 2022, and hopefully fans will find it worth the wait. A lot happened during the DLC’s development, including the consideration of releasing the DLC as a standalone game.
In an interview with NintendoEverything, StudioMDHR confirmed that they originally considered putting out Delicious Last Course as its own game. That said, the team moved away from that idea since the theme of the DLC fit too well with Cuphead as the base. You can see the studio’s full comments below.
“Yeah! There was a discussion – it was a brief discussion at the beginning of the development in 2019 when we actually put pencil to paper. But ultimately at the end of the day, it fit this chapter of the Cuphead story. We really always wanted to have Ms. Chalice as a playable character, and so that fit, and storyline-wise it fit as well, so it just made sense for us to include it as a DLC rather than as a standalone game.”
