Cuphead Co-Creator Would Like Cuphead And Mugman In Super Smash Bros

Game Informer managed to catch up with Nintendo’s manager of publisher and developer relations Kirk Scott and Cuphead‘s co-creator Jared Moldenhauer at this week’s GDC 2019 event. Moldenhauer joked with Mr. Scott that he would very much like to see both Cuphead and Mugman appear in Super Smash Bros Ultimate. Here’s the conversation:

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. Ultimate.

“I’ve dreamed of Smash Bros,” said Moldenhauer. “[Cuphead and Mugman] belong in there. So basically if fans want it, I couldn’t see how Nintendo wouldn’t want the fans to get what they wanted. I think they would because they support their fans a lot . . . So if Nintendo was keeping their fans happy, then I’d be more than pleased to make that the easiest transition. Just a piece of paper, we don’t need anything. You can have those characters make an appearance.”

I asked which characters Moldenhauer would most like to see go up against Cuphead in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

“Maybe just Ice Climbers? Like a two versus two. I’ve been [playing] a lot of the NES mini, and it’s not my favorite game. That’s why Ice Climbers came up because it’s like ‘Well, that one isn’t fun,’ so I kind of want to take those characters and then demolish them.”

  1. Slow down a bit!
    I think Cuphead looks like a pretty neat, tough little game.
    But, I can think of so many other characters I’d like to see first and most smash fans will prob be the same.
    I’d like koopa in there for starters.
    I always use him in Mario kart.

  2. It’s ok.

    Cuphead is an excellent game.

    I love Cuphead And Mugman.

    But if Smash is to add another character, I would love Minecraft Steve instead.

    I’m not gonna cry over spilled milk though if this is to come true.

  3. Move out of the way, Steve, Banjo, & Kazooie! Cuphead & Mugman want their shot! As much as I’d love Banjo-Kazooie, it would be fun to see these two instead just to see other Banjo-Kazooie fans flip their shit. lol

      You know, a while back I saw you complaining about something and I responded with that “Let me play you a sad song” video and you got all like “Oh come on, you don’t need to be like that”.
      Explain to me why then it’s okay for you to take a shot at Banjo Kazooie fans for completely unprovoked reasons?

        I can’t remember what the topic was as it was a few months back. But if you were joking then never mind, I thought you were being serious.

      If you’re in 2019 and you still don’t see why Steve is an option then my goodness man, you really need to brush up your research.
