The other day, much to the surprise and delight of gamers, indie darling Cuphead was officially announced for the Nintendo Switch. The game was previously exclusive to Microsoft’s Xbox platform as far as consoles are concerned (it is also playable on PC), so safe to say that this was a very nice surprise for non-Xbox gamers who also wanted to play the game.
Now in a new video released by Nintendo, they are showing off the co-op gameplay on the Nintendo Switch, where in the Nintendo Minute video with Kit and Krysta, they also manage to interview Jake of Studio MDHR (the developer behind Cuphead) to get his thoughts on the game, the art style, the choice of music, and so on.
For those who are unfamiliar with Cuphead, the game was launched a couple of years ago after spending years in development. It feels like a very old school side-scroller kind of game, but what made the game so unique is the use of hand-drawn graphics which makes it feel like cartoons of the good old days.
Apart from looking so unique, the game has also been known to be rather challenging which should make things more interesting for gamers. The upside to the game being playable on the Nintendo Switch is that it makes co-op playable right out of the box. Cuphead for the Nintendo Switch is currently set for a release on the 18th of April, so do keep an eye out for it if you’re interested in getting your hands on the game.
