Studio MDHR announced today via the Nintendo Switch Nindies Showcase Spring 2019 that Cuphead will land on the Nintendo eShop on April 18. What’s more, the game is available for pre-purchase starting today for: $19.99 USD, $25.99 CAD, £16.99, and 19,99€.
In addition to the game’s launch on Switch, a major, free content update will also make its way to all versions of Cuphead (Xbox One, PC, Mac) on the same day.
The new free content update will add both fun surprises and longtime requested features such as: playable Mugman in single-player, new fully animated cutscenes, never-before-seen art and fight intros, ten additional languages, a plethora of bug fixes, and plenty of secrets for players to discover.

“It’s no secret that Cuphead is a direct descendant of retro action games like Contra on the NES, so it’s surreal to finally have one of our own games on a Nintendo system,” said Studio MDHR Co-Director Chad Moldenhauer. “We’re beyond thrilled to be able to bring Cuphead to a brand new audience on Nintendo Switch. Playing the game on a console with such a big focus on local co-op really reminds Jared and I of our days gaming together as kids.”
