At last! Studio MDHR have announced that Cuphead’s new DLC, The Delicious Last Course, will launch on June 30th 2022. The news comes as an enormous relief after fans have been patiently waiting for almost four years since the initial June 2018 announcement. The indie 1930’s cartoon-inspired game has been popular for its incredible graphic style and difficulty in equal measure, and its long-awaited DLC is sure to follow suit.
What is Cuphead?
In case you missed it (and if so, where have you been?!), Cuphead is a cartoony action platformer with a major focus on difficult boss battles. The indie game’s unique aesthetic comes from using cel animation graphics in the style of 1930s cartoons like Steamboat Willy. Winning a whole slew of awards from The Game Awards to BAFTAs, and even becoming its own upcoming Netflix series, the game shot to popularity and has been a cult classic since its launch back in 2017.
Playing single-player as Cuphead, or joining in with local co-op as Mugman, players must travel through cartoon-inspired landscapes – complete with watercolour backgrounds and jazz soundtrack – and take on a range of villainous baddies set on stealing their souls. From terrifying giant root vegetables, all the way to The Devil himself, players must be quick, smart, and sometimes lucky to take down their enemies and escape with their lives.
What we know about The Delicious Last Course DLC so far
The new Cuphead DLC will add a whole array of new and exciting elements to the game. A whole new location – Inkwell Isle – will be added to explore, and brand new character Ms. Chalice joins the brothers Cuphead and Mugman in their adventures.
The developers have teased plenty of new monstrous bosses, special abilities, and even a secret questline for Legendary Chalice.
Where can I play the new Cuphead DLC?
The Delicious Last Course DLC will launch on June 30th 2022 on PC and Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch consoles.
