Microsoft Asked Cuphead Developer to Bring the Game to Switch

By Dave Horobin, 1 month ago
Earlier this week, Studio MDHR announced that they are bringing their retro-styled run and gun platformer Cuphead to the Nintendo Switch in April, with Microsoft later confirming that a future patch will add Xbox Live support.

More details regarding how the project started have emerged as Daniel Bloodworth of Easy Allies had the chance to speak to one of the studios' developers at GDC, who revealed that it was Microsoft's idea to bring the game over to the Switch.


Cuphead won't be the last game that will be making its way to the Nintendo Switch with Xbox Live features, as Microsoft announced on stage at GDC that although they don't have an SDK for Nintendo's system in their plans right now, more Xbox Live enabled games will be making their way over there in the future.


Cuphead will launch for Nintendo Switch on April 18th.
