We found out during the Nindies presentation this afternoon that Cuphead is Nintendo Switch bound courtesy of StudioMDHR and Xbox. In a blog post on the official Xbox blog the company says that they are “investigate bringing Xbox Live features beyond Xbox and PC to Nintendo Switch.” The Xbox team also says that they are looking to implement Xbox Live features into Cuphead in the coming months. Cuphead launches for Nintendo Switch next month!
Growing out of these recent discussions, we are partnering with StudioMDHR to investigate bringing Xbox Live features beyond Xbox and PC to Nintendo Switch. Yes, this means that fans will now have the opportunity to experience StudioMDHR’s award-winning debut game on Nintendo Switch with Xbox Live! We’ll be working with StudioMDHR to implement Xbox Live features into Cuphead on the Nintendo Switch in the coming months. Given the early stage of our work with StudioMDHR, the Xbox Live features will appear in a post-launch update to Cuphead on Nintendo Switch. We’d like to thank Studio MDHR and Nintendo for their help in this investigation!
