Cuphead Now Available On PS4, No News On Latest Delicious Course Downloadable Content


It has been released by surprise on PlayStation 4, and developer Studio MDHR has announced a free update to the existing version of Xbox One. Announced during an interview with Geoff Keighley in a broadcast of Summer Game Fest, the beautiful and challenging platform game from Combat will be available on PS4 for $ 19.99 USD / £ 15.99 (no Australian pricing available at time of writing).

MDHR Co-Founder Chad Moldenhauer said: “To all the passionate PlayStation fans who have texted us over the years: We are so excited that you have a chance to experience Cuphead firsthand. We are also very grateful for the wonderful Xbox team, which continues to empower us to bring our game and our story to new audiences. “The next Xbox update will add “a digital art gallery, behind-the-scenes commentary features, and a playable soundtrack to the game.” No date has been given for the release of the update.

It is one of the last major platforms to see a Cuphead release, after it sold 6 million copies on Xbox, PC, Mac, and Switch.

A DLC expansion, The Delicious Last Course will still launch this year after a delay, and MDHR says we’ll learn more in the coming months, but no release date was given, with Studio MDHR COO Maja Moldenhauer saying that “it will come out when it’s ready.” Moldenhauer added that the DLC will feature more advanced animation than seen in the already original original game.

We’re also awaiting more information on The Cuphead Show, a Netflix TV series currently in development, for which we recently got a first teaser.
