Cuphead for Nintendo Switch Announced, Release Date Confirmed

Cuphead for Nintendo Switch Announced, Release Date Confirmed

Nintendo is teaming up with Frito-Lay to add superstar characters from some of its hit Nintendo Switch games to the in-store packaging of various Frito-Lay Variety Packs.

Details on Cuphead's Switch port are obviously still light since it was just announced, but Studio MDHR did say today that you'll be able to play as both Cuphead and Mugman either in single-player or through local co-op.

Fans who purchase the specially marked Frito-Lay Variety Packs will also have the chance to win a Nintendo Switch system and three Nintendo Switch games selected by Frito-Lay*.

The game was first introduced to the public as a Microsoft-exclusive, through Xbox One, and to PC users.

Bringing Cuphead to Switch was no easy task, but it turns out the work done on this version will benefit the game across all platforms. The two were the first of the big three to incorporate cross-platform play, a long-requested but seemingly impossible feature that nearly seemed like a cruel, Mean Girls joke on Sony.

Samsung Galaxy A40 Leaked Renders Tip Infinity-U Display, Dual Rear Cameras
On the inside, the Samsung Galaxy A40 will employ the Exynos 7885 SoC, coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory. For camera duties, it offers a 13MP rear camera with F1.9 aperture and a 5MP front camera with face recognition.

Microsoft revealed last week it'd be bringing Live to iOS and Android, offering the same aforementioned benefits to mobile gamers.

However, while Cuphead will come to Switch on April 18, the Xbox Live features will be added as an update post-launch.

The official announcement of the Cuphead Switch release date comes on the heels of several rumors about potential collaborations between Nintendo and Microsoft.

Here is the Cuphead Nintendo Switch trailer.
