Studio MDHR has announced that Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course has sold more than one million copies “across all available platforms” in less than two weeks since the downloadable expansion launched.
“This marks an even quicker timeline than it took for the original game to achieve this momentous feat, and we are just beside ourselves with joy and appreciation,” Studio MDHR studio director and executive producer Maja Moldenhauer explains. “These words certainly do not encompass how grateful we are, but to the amazing Cuphead players worldwide we say nonetheless: thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”
The expansion promises “a rollicking adventure on a previously undiscovered Inkwell Isle,” and will see the stalwart brothers Cuphead and Mugman joined by the all-new playable character Ms. Chalice – who will be known to fans of the original game as the wise Legendary Chalice.
You can expect new weapons, magical charms and Ms. Chalice’s unique abilities, with which you will be challenged to topple fearsome, larger-than-life bosses.
The developer has outlined the expansion’s key features as below:
- Featuring Ms. Chalice as a brand new playable character with a modified moveset and new abilities. Once acquired, Ms. Chalice is fully playable through the DLC and the original Cuphead adventure!
- Traverse a brand new Inkwell Isle and wallop the most wacky and monstrous bosses Cuphead has faced yet!
- Find new weapons and charms to aid you in overcoming brand new challenges and setting new records on old bosses!
- Help Chef Saltbaker on a brand new adventure to uncover the mystery of Legendary Chalice’s secret quest!
Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course is now available digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide priced at £6.79 ($7.99).
