"Cuphead" Gets A Nintendo Switch Port, Complete With Xbox Live Support

This update will be available for PC, Switch, and Xbox One on April 18.

Studio MDHR has announced that Cuphead will be making the jump to Nintendo Switch next month, with the developer now "working closely with the lovely team at Microsoft to investigate bringing Xbox Live features to the Nintendo Switch version" of the game. While there's no evidence (yet) that Xbox Live is coming to the Switch by itself, it could very well piggyback onto other games in future.

Here is the Cuphead Nintendo Switch trailer.

Cuphead's co-creator Jared Moldenhauer jokingly ribbed Scott by letting the world know how badly he wants to see Cuphead and Mugman in Super Smash Bros.

Studio MDHR's incredibly hard Cuphead title is making its way to the Nintendo Switch. We'll be working with StudioMDHR to implement Xbox Live features into Cuphead on the Nintendo Switch in the coming months.

Cuphead was mentioned in a multi-part rumor suggesting Xbox One games, as well as Xbox Game Pass, could be making their way to the Nintendo Switch. While Microsoft has put forth tentative plans to bring Live to Switch, iOS, and Android, Cuphead will be the first actual game to carry it over, meaning we'll finally see how well this crossover works.

Microsoft says the company is working with Studio MDHR to integrate Xbox Live into the Nintendo Switch version of the game.

It seems like online multiplayer may be powered by Xbox Live on Nintendo Switch when it comes to Cuphead. Preorders will be available on the Nintendo Switch eShop beginning today.
