Cuphead on-sale for 20% off to celebrate 5 million copies sold, and its second anniversary


As of today, Cuphead is now 2 years old! Sure, it hasn't been on the Switch for two years, but Switch owners can definitely get in on the celebration! Studio MDHR has announced that they'll be celebrating the 2-year anniversary with a special 20% off sale for the game, which runs for 1 week. This special sale is also in honor of the game hitting 5 million units sold!

Cuphead soundtrack becomes the first ever game soundtrack to hit #1 on the Billboard Jazz charts


Now this is a very cool thing to see. The Billboard Jazz charts have come out, and believe it or not, the 'Selected Tunes from Cuphead' album has shot all the way up to #1! That's not #1 for gaming soundtrack charts, but #1 on the Jazz charts overall. This is the very first time a gaming soundtrack has taken #1 on the Jazz charts, and it's certainly well deserving of the honor.

God of War's art director creates a Cuphead tribute

Some real high-class art

Raf Grassetti, art director on God of War, has taken some time away from all things Kratos to put together a tribute to Cuphead. The piece features Cuphead and Mugman in CG style, but still stays true to the original design of the characters. Looks good enough to be turned into a figurine to me!

GoNintendo Video - Why I'm REALLY excited for Netflix's The Cuphead Show

So thirsty!

Netflix announced The Cuphead Show earlier this week, which is an animated series inspired by the game. We don't know too much about the series just yet, but what we DO know has me really excited. Let me tell you why!

If you like what you see, we'd love to have you subscribe!

Studio MDHR talks The Cuphead Show's animation and music stylings, don't have anything to share on a Cuphead sequel

Drink it all in

Cuphead is making its way to Netflix as an animated series, which seems like an absolutely fantastic idea. There's only been one piece of promo art so far, which has fans wondering what kind of approach the animation team will take with the series. In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Studio MDHR's Chad Moldenhauer gives a slight hint as to what we can expect.

Right now we aren't sharing any specific details on the show's visual style. For more news as it becomes available, stay tuned to our social channels, Netflix's social channels, or the new Cuphead Show Twitter feed. With that said, we're keen to stay as far away from computer-assisted puppeteer animation as possible and are proud to be working with a creative team that really believes in the value of hand animation.

Almost as important as the game's visuals is the soundtrack. Can we expect the Netflix series to offer up something similar in the music department?

While there's a shared reverence between ourselves and Netflix for the jazz, big band, and orchestral music that was featured in Cuphead, we don't have anything to announce at this time about the music for The Cuphead show.

There's no denying that Cuphead has been an absolutely huge success. The game has found millions of fans on all platforms, which paved the way for this Netflix cartoon. With all the buzz around the series in general, can fans expect a sequel down the road?

Right now, as a studio, our full energies are dedicated to development of Cuphead's DLC expansion, The Delicious Last Course, which we recently announced is being shifted to a 2020 release window so that we can give it the care and attention we feel it deserves. We're pouring our hearts into making sure it's a new Cuphead adventure that fans will love, and don't have any other announcements to make beyond that right now.

Cuphead hits 4 million sold across all platforms

Drink it in, man

Cuphead has been a major success pretty much since day one. Audiences on PC, Xbox One, and Switch have all flocked to the title, which has paved the way for a Netflix series that was just announced earlier today. It's no surprise Netflix wants to hop in on the Cuphead action, as the game alone has managed to move 4 million units across all platforms. That's a pretty huge success considering how Cuphead is a brand-new 2D IP. Success on this level might have a few other big-name devs and pubs reconsidering their approach to games!

Cuphead's "Delicious Last Course" DLC was pushed to 2020 to get things right and keep the dev team healthy

Sounds like the right way to do things

Today saw the release of a new trailer for Cuphead's upcoming 'Delicious Last Course' DLC, which ended with the mention of a 2020 release. The DLC was originally slated to launch in 2019, so what happened? Cuphead co-director Chad Moldenhauer explained to Kotaku.

“While we initially announced a 2019 release date for the ‘Delicious Last Course’ expansion, our highest priority is making sure this new adventure meets the meticulous level of care and quality we always strive for. We want to be absolutely certain that this next adventure feels at home in the world of Cuphead and is full of moments that surprise and delight players.

Furthermore, the development of the original game taught us a great deal about the importance of making things in a way that’s healthy and sustainable for our team. This wasn’t an easy decision to make, but we’re confident it’s one that will result in a higher quality experience that’s all the sweeter when it does arrive.”

Doug Bowser says Nintendo has no 3DS games to announce at E3, reveals what Switch titles he's currently playing

Sorry, 3DS fans

If you haven't figured it out by now, Nintendo's Doug Bowser wanted to make it clear. While Nintendo will continue selling the 3DS, they don't have plans to talk about it at E3 this year. He shared that sentiment in an interview with Time, which you can read a snippet of below.

At this point, we have no games to announce on 3DS at this show, and in fact we’re not really showing 3DS content here, because it is all about Nintendo Switch. But our 3DS business continues to do quite well. Retailers continue to support both the hardware and the software. And as long as there’s consumer demand for 3DS, we’ll continue to support it. In fact, we believe it’s a great entry point for young gamers. A 2DS at $79 with a game included is a great value proposition for a young gamer coming into the Nintendo ecosystem.

Bowser, and Nintendo in general, are all about Switch right now. There's certainly plenty of games to talk about on that platform! Wondering what Bowser is playing on his Switch?

Right now I’m playing — I’m looking at my Switch — I’m still diving deep into Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe and trying to get through the game. I’m a bit of a completionist when it comes to platformers. I’m playing Cuphead right now, being challenged by Cuphead —

Elon Musk gets Cuphead up-and-running in Teslas

Road rage

What's Elon Musk doing when he's not thinking about trips to space, underground tunnels, or self-driving cars? He's playing Cuphead, of course! He's not sitting down with a Switch to play it, though. He's getting behind the wheel of a Tesla to give the game a shot.

Musk has confirmed that his team has worked with Cuphead creators Studio MDHR to get Cuphead up-and-running in a Tesla. Teslas already had various Atari games added to them as Easter eggs, but Musk is stepping things up with Cuphead. Just as with the Atari games, Cuphead can only be played when the car is parked.

As of right now, only Inkwell Isle One is playable due to storage constraints. The team is working on those issues right now, and are aiming to have the game launch sometime this Summer.
