After rumors surfaced that Ori and the Blind Forest will be ported to Nintendo Switch, we now hear rumblings about another Xbox One exclusive that will make the same leap.
Jeuxvideo reports that – from ongoing conversations between Nintendo of America and Xbox Game Studios – a decision has been made to also port Cuphead to the portable home console.
StudioMDHR’s critically-acclaimed run-and-gun action game was released for Xbox One and Windows PC in September 2017, and, aside from a macOS port, has not fired a shot at any other platforms.
In Cuphead, you play as Cuphead or Mugman as you explore strange worlds, recover new weapons, and learn powerful super moves as you work to pay your debt back to the devil – gunning down bosses on the way.
It was the striking visual style that left the strongest first impression, that, taking inspiration of 1930s cartoons, uses traditional hand-drawn cel animation and watercolor backgrounds. Which is accompanied by a hot jazz soundtrack.
