This is one of the best trailers of the night, by far. The craftsmanship is unreal.
Following up on one of the greatest run-and-gun games ever made is no easy feat, and while it’s too early to tell if Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course will hit all of the same marks, the new boss battle footage today will fill you with renewed confidence.
The expansion will feature Ms. Chalice - better known to Cuphead veterans as Legendary Chalice - as a new playable character, who comes with a modified moveset and new abilities. You can use Ms. Chalice not only in the DLC but also in the original Cuphead levels, too.
“Everyone really honed their craft during the course of development,” Studio MDHR COO Maja Moldenhauer said in a press statement. “We’re so proud of our talented team, and the meticulous care they put into every element of this expansion.”
“There are individual phases of bosses in The Delicious Last Course that contain more frames of animation than entire bosses in the original Cuphead, and we think fans and newcomers alike will really appreciate the depth and detail on display!”
“As with so many of our fellow developers, creating games during these unique times has brought with it a host of challenges, and we’re so grateful to our Cuphead community for their patience and excitement as we’ve pushed to make The Delicious Last Course a true high watermark of the studio’s art, design, and animation,” said Studio MDHR co-director, Chad Moldenhauer.
Speaking of the original game, Ms. Chalice will be playable on the new DLC island as well as on the original stages — that goes for new weapons and charms, too.
Best of all, we now also have a specific release date for the expansion. Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course will launch for Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC on June 30, 2022.
