To celebrate the title’s 5th anniversary, Cuphead Physical Edition will be available for several gaming platforms!
Cuphead has reached five wonderful years since its first release on September 29, 2017. The run-and-gun video game developed and published by Studio MDHR has continued to be popular with an ever-growing fanbase. Its success reached its height, eventually receiving a Netflix animation series adaptation.
The game follows the adventure of the main character, Cuphead, who, after losing a game at the Devil’s casino, is tasked with retrieving the souls of runaway debtors as payment for his loss. In the game, up to two players control Cuphead and his brother Mugman to fight through several levels and boss fights; the game does not have a rigid narrative structure. As the game progresses, the protagonist gains more strength and powers, ultimately becoming a danger to the Devil himself. However, players can only equip a limited number of these abilities at a given time.
Meanwhile, the most recent downloadable content of Cuphead, “The Delicious Last Course,” features the story where Cuphead and Mugman were summoned to visit a distant fourth Inkwell Isle after freeing a spirit known as the Legendary Chalice from one of the main game’s mausoleums. Once they arrive, Chalice demonstrates an “Astral Cookie” which allows her to trade places with the brother who eats it, turning him into a ghost and temporarily bringing her back to life as Ms. Chalice.
While Cuphead has been around for years, the game has not yet been made available in a physical format but rather has only been on online stores of various gaming platforms. Now, to celebrate its fifth anniversary, Cuphead has revealed that it will be releasing a physical version of the game for platforms such as PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. In addition to this, the downloadable content “The Delicious Last Course” will be included in the physical version.
Fans of Cuphead, though most of them already own a copy of Cuphead, have expressed their excitement regarding the upcoming release of the game in a physical edition. Physical edition collectors are even more excited to get their hands on the Cuphead physical edition.
