As a result of the newly formed partnership between Microsoft and Nintendo, it has been announced that Cuphead is coming to the Nintendo Switch and it will have Xbox Live support, so you can earn Xbox achievements, while playing Cuphead on the Switch!  Also, when the PC and Xbox One version gets any updates, the Nintendo Switch version will get them at the very same time.


Speaking of updates, a new and free update will arrive for the launch on the Nintendo Switch version, which will add Mugman as a playable character with new animated cut-scenes, art, fight introductions and 10 additional languages.  The free update will also fix a number of reported bugs.

You can pre-purchase Cuphead now in the Nintendo eShop at a cost of £16.99/€19.99/$19.99USD/$26.99CAD and it will release for Nintendo Switch on April 18th.
