It appears that more rumors are coming true these days as today Cuphead was revealed to be heading to the Nintendo Switch. The Microsoft owned IP will be available to own on the Switch starting April 18, 2019. The announcement came courtesy of today’s Nindie Direct video as part of GDC 19 and Nintendo was quick to thank Microsoft and Studio MDHR for bringing it to the system. Cuphead coming to the Switch is another notch in the great relationship Microsoft and Nintendo have been forming over the last few years. Cuphead will be joining Minecraft and Hellblade as the newest game from a Microsoft owned studio to come to Nintendo’s Hybrid console.
In the absence of Microsoft ever having their own handheld system, I love that that they are working with Nintendo and the Switch. While the Switch will never be able to deliver the full graphical effects of an Xbox One X, having the ability to play titles on the go that are reasonably well looking seems to be ok with the mass majority of the gaming world. Having more choices on where you can play your games is also never a bad thing in my eyes.
Do you plan to pickup Cuphead when it comes to the Switch? Let us know below!
