Yesterday’s announcement of a Nintendo Switch version of Cuphead was quite a bombshell, and we’ve been gradually hearing more details on how this project came to be. Daniel Bloodworth of Easy Allies has been a GDC, where he talked to one of the devs behind the game. Bloodworth found out that “Microsoft actually approached them and asked if they’d like to make a Switch version”. The tweet is down below.
