E3 2018: Cuphead Gets New Playable Character And Bosses
More bosses, more chances to die.
We were surprised to see Cuphead get a new trailer in Xbox's E3 2018 press conference. The trailer showcased some new changes that are coming to Cuphead as part of something called The Delicious Last Course.
First off, players are getting access to a new character. Her name is Ms. Chalice. It's unclear exactly what her new abilities are based on the trailer, but a press release does confirm that she brings something new to the table. There's also mention of new weapons and charms.
The trailer also promises to bring new enemies and bosses to Cuphead. Who they are and how they fight are still under wraps, but it looks like players are going to have plenty of new opportunities to try out Ms. Chalice when these changes come in Spring 2019.
All of this comes in the form of a DLC add-on that consists of a new island. A price for the package wasn't announced, nor was there any word on a bundle with the base game.
In our Cuphead review, Peter Brown said the game is "relentless," but that "toppling Cuphead's imposing bosses is both a monumental and rewarding task." He praised the game's "endlessly charming" 1930s cartoon aesthetic, which "truly re-creates the look of hand-drawn cel animation." He awarded the game an 8/10.
