Today on thegameawards Indie Studio Update, Geoff Knightley and Studio MDHR Entertainment Inc., the creators of Cuphead, have announced that Cuphead is out now on the PS4.
Cuphead is a side-scrolling title that is based off of cartoons from the 1930s and created using the same techniques from the era. It features traditional hand drawn cel animations, watercolor backgrounds, and original jazz recordings. It is also noted for its difficulty, with some comparing it to the Souls series in terms of its raw difficulty.
It’s actually available on the PlayStation Store today, which is pretty sweet and a long-time coming. It was originally released in September 2017 for the Xbox One and PC, with a Nintendo Switch release in April 2019. Now it’s July 2020 and Cuphead is on the PS4.
“Many of us on the team grew up exploring the worlds of classic PlayStation titles, from Resident Evil to Vandal Hearts,” says Studio MDHR Co-Director Chad Moldenhauer. “It’s surreal to think about players adventuring through the Inkwell Isles with a PlayStation controller in hand. To all the impassioned PlayStation fans who’ve sent us messages over the years: we’re so excited for you to get a chance to experience Cuphead firsthand. We’re also hugely thankful to the wonderful team at Xbox, who continue to empower us to bring our game and our story to new audiences.”
The upcoming DLC, Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course, will also be released on all platforms at the same time when it releases. Talking with Keighley, it came out that there is still no release date for the DLC, and it will be released when its ready.
Cuphead on the PS4 is available now for $19.99 USD/ €19.99 / £15.99.
