Cuphead, the all-cartoon Magical Wondergame, is coming to Nintendo Switch! Play as Cuphead or Mugman (in single player or local co-op) as you traverse strange worlds, acquire new weapons, learn powerful super moves, and discover hidden secrets while you try to pay your debt back to the devil!

Cuphead has been a big success so far, selling over 3 million copies on Xbox One, the Windows Store and Steam. Cuphead will be available on the Nintendo Switch on April 18th, 2019. Post-launch, it will be getting full Xbox Live and Cloud Save support, thanks to the teams at Xbox.
