Cuphead Goes Physical!

Roman Sanchez

And Begin!

Cuphead, the 2D scrolling run-and-gun video game has made its physical edition debut for the Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, and Xbox One; and has brought its 1930’s cartoon style with it!

Cuphead was first released digitally on Sept. 29th, 2017 by Studio MDHR, created by Chad and Jared Moldenhauer. With a list that can go on forever, Cuphead captured its audience with its superb character design, art style, energetic soundtrack, and excruciating difficulty. Cuphead would go on to become a commercial success by selling two million copies within its first two weeks of release.

Since then, Cuphead has continued to dominate the gaming industry by winning awards left and right. Studio MDHR has taken advantage of this non-stopping success train by going on to release a DLC expansion entitled Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course, which was released on June 30th of 2022. That same year, a Netflix animated series, The Cuphead Show! would be available to stream. This animated series takes place in a similar universe to Cuphead and currently has three seasons.
