Cuphead Celebrates One Year On Switch With A Limited-Time Sale
Switch owners in the US can get a discount on the much-loved shooter for a short time.
It's been one year since Cuphead, the beloved co-op shooter, made its way to Nintendo Switch. It was the first of two Microsoft-published games to appear on the system, the other being Ori and the Blind Forest, and it's turned out to be an excellent fit for the system. Now, to celebrate the anniversary of its release, Cuphead has been discounted.
You can grab Cuphead on the Eshop right now for $15, with a 25% discount applied to its standard $20 price. The game has only been discounted on Switch once before, so it's not one we see pop up regularly in Switch sales. You have until April 25 to pick it up at this reduced price.
How time flies!! One year ago today, Cuphead officially released on Nintendo Switch. To all those who discovered our little animated adventure, or took another trip to the Inkwell Isles: our sincerest thanks.— Studio MDHR (@StudioMDHR) April 18, 2020
To celebrate, the game is 25% off on the Nintendo eShop until 04/25. pic.twitter.com/EIw72tgBkc
Unfortunately, this discount seems to only apply to the US Eshop--we checked both the UK and Australian stores and found the game was still full price on each.
A new Cuphead DLC is due to release this year. It's called The Delicious Last Course, and will feature a new playable character, Ms. Chalice. The game earned an 8/10 in GameSpot's review, and critic Peter Brown described it as "a rare, unique game that truly stands out." The Switch version was said to be on par with the Xbox One and PC releases.
