I was very jealous of Cuphead's exclusivity, so I'm excited for it's release on Nintendo's Switch

The vintage cartoon style and savage difficulty will make this an epic frustration that I'll love!
April is looking to be a good month for those who've been eyeing Cuphead wondering if they should buy an Xbox One. Apparently, good things come to those who wait. Microsoft is releasing Cuphead for Switch on April 8. It makes one wonder if a Nintendo/Microsoft partnership is brewing. I didn't hear anything about a PS4 release...

While the initial release will be a digital download, it sounds a s though a physical release will occur once the DLC has been released digitally. That's great news! People seem very eager to have this game - I know I am. But can I manage to wait until the physical game arrives?

The game has some great specs. There will be a new content update that includes the ability to select characters as well as animated cut-scenes. There's no release date for the physical version at this time.

Riverdale's Heathers-infuenced episode
From Nintendo's site:

Cuphead is a classic run and gun action game heavily focused on boss battles. Inspired by cartoons of the 1930s, the visuals and audio are painstakingly created with the same techniques of the era: traditional hand drawn cel animation, watercolor backgrounds, and original jazz recordings.

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!
