Cuphead co-creator wants Cuphead and Mugman in Smash Bros. Ultimate, is 'more than pleased' to make that happen

A brawl is surely brewing!

Cuphead is coming to Switch. There was a time when saying Cuphead could come to Switch seemed like a fever dream of diehard fans at best, or the rumors of evil trolls at worst. Despite all that, Cuphead on Switch is indeed a reality. So what's next for the dynamic duo? If co-creator Jared Moldenhauer has his way, Cuphead and Mugman will get their day in Smash Bros. Ultimate.

"I’ve dreamed of Smash Bros," said Moldenhauer. "[Cuphead and Mugman] belong in there. So basically if fans want it, I couldn’t see how Nintendo wouldn’t want the fans to get what they wanted. I think they would because they support their fans a lot . . . So if Nintendo was keeping their fans happy, then I’d be more than pleased to make that the easiest transition. Just a piece of paper, we don’t need anything. You can have those characters make an appearance."

More footage of Smash Bros. Ultimate's Chain Chomp mod

Chomping at the bit for a fight!

You might have caught this the other day when we posted up footage of the Peter Griffin mod for Smash Bros. Ultimate. Modders have taken the Piranha Plant character and turned him into a Chain Chomp, and the results are pretty fantastic! Seems like he'd be a welcome addition to the roster!

Twitch Plays Smash Bros. Ultimate is up-and-running

Can World of Light be tackled?

Watch live video from CommunityController on www.twitch.tv

Twitch Plays Pokemon was the game that started off the 'Twitch Plays' phenomenon. The latest contender to the throne is Twitch Plays Smash Bros. Ultimate, and it's tasking users to come together and somehow make their way through Smash Bros. Ultimate's World of Light mode. I really don't see how this is going to happen, but I said the same thing about Twitch Plays Pokemon!

Sakurai details the making of Smash Bros. Ultimate's 'Classic Mode' mural

A work of art

An insane amount of work went into every single aspect of Smash Bros. Ultimate. So much time spent on art, music, gameplay mechanics, and so much more. In a quick snippet with Famitsu, we get some insight into one tiny feature, the Classic Mode mural.

A few members of the staff worked on it, offering up a stylistic caricature while maintaining the integrity of the design, all the while fine-tuning their work. In addition to getting an OK from me, though, we had to go through and get the OK from each IP’s original publisher, so it took a lot more time and effort than just having to draw it.”
