Cuphead First Impressions: Gorgeous but Difficult

Studio MDHR’s incredibly difficult Cuphead title is making its way to the Nintendo Switch. With Xbox Live going cross-platform, Microsoft is working with the makers of the game StudioMDHR to bring the critically acclaimed title to the Nintendo Switch with Xbox Live integration.

Microsoft says the company is working with Studio MDHR to integrate Xbox Live into the Nintendo Switch version of the game. The game will be available on the Nintendo Switch on April 18, but the Xbox Live features will be made later on.

It seems like the Xbox Live integration is still in the early days, so Microsoft and Studio MDHR will introduce the integration with a future update later on. “Fans will now have the opportunity to experience StudioMDHR’s award-winning debut game on Nintendo Switch with Xbox Live! We’ll be working with StudioMDHR to implement Xbox Live features into Cuphead on the Nintendo Switch in the coming months. Given the early stage of our work with StudioMDHR, the Xbox Live features will appear in a post-launch update to Cuphead on Nintendo Switch,” Microsoft said.

Cuphead has already been a huge hit, and it might get a lot of traction on the Switch. But that won’t change the fact that I still can’t get past the first level.
