Summer Game Fest had a surprising announcement today: Cuphead is coming to the PS4 today! In an interview with Summer Game Fest’s host Geoff Keighley and Maja Moldenhauer from developer Studio MDHR, that information was revealed along with some updates on the game’s DLC and upcoming Netflix series.
The studio is remaining tight-lipped about “The Delicious Last Course” DLC, which has taken longer than originally anticipated. Given the painstaking amount of detail that goes into the unique hand-drawn animations within the game combined with COVID-19, the delay is understandable. However, Studio MDHR promises that the wait will be worth it and will ultimately surprise players. With its new animations, enemies, and new playable character, this should be true.
They also discussed the upcoming Netflix series The Cuphead Show! Even though release dates and production status weren’t officially announced, it sounds like the show is deep in production. So it shouldn’t be too far off from hitting the small screen.
But the big surprise was that not only is the game Cuphead coming to PS4 but that it’s releasing today. This announcement was made via a charming and unique stop-motion sequence.
Cuphead initially came out on Xbox One and PC on September 29th, 2017 before making its way onto the Nintendo Switch on April 18th, 2019. Now PlayStation 4 users will get to experience the tough as nails run-and-gun platformer. And more good news was that when the DLC does drop, it will be a simultaneous release on all platforms.
