Cuphead is coming to Nintendo Switch, Xbox Live support planned

Nintendo announced during its Nindies Showcase for GDC 2019 that former Xbox One-console exclusive Cuphead is coming to the Nintendo Switch.

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. A persistent rumor is that Microsoft is working on a dedicated Game Pass app through which it'll allow users to stream games on their Switches - a seductive idea, albeit one that sounds more like a pipe dream at this point. It's been called the hardest game ever played by many.

Moldenhauer also threw some praise at Nintendo themselves for the port. Studio MDHR worked in collaboration with Nintendo's Nindie team when questions arose, and Moldenhauer said Nintendo was always very quick to respond.

Most of the 100 passengers said to have been on board could not swim, the head of Mosul's civil defence agency said. Dozens of people drowned today when their pleasure boat capsized on the River Tigris near Mosul .

While discussing the features that Xbox Live will bring to iOS and Android, Microsoft displayed an image (below) of an online leader board. We'll be working with StudioMDHR to implement Xbox Live features into Cuphead on the Nintendo Switch in the coming months. 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. But, according to The Verge, the run-and-gun platformer will be unleashed upon the Nintendo Switch servers, with Xbox Live Support promised in the months following its re-introduction on April 18th.

Pine launches for the Nintendo Switch and PC this August.
