From Press Release:
TORONTO, DECEMBER 9th, 2021 – As a part of The Game Awards 2021, Studio MDHR is delighted to debut a brand new trailer for Cuphead – The Delicious Last Course, the game’s long-awaited expansion featuring the all-new playable character Ms. Chalice. In addition to showing off never-before-seen footage of some of the game’s screen-filling new bosses, this hand-crafted marionette trailer reveals the game’s highly anticipated release date: June 30th, 2022! At release, this second helping of Cuphead adventure will be available everywhere the current game can be found: Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Steam, and GOG.
“We’re beyond thrilled to finally be sharing a release date for The Delicious Last Course with our fans,” says Studio MDHR Co-Director Chad Moldenhauer. “As with so many of our fellow developers, creating games during these unique times has brought with it a host of challenges, and we’re so grateful to our Cuphead community for their patience and excitement as we’ve pushed to make The Delicious Last Course a true high watermark of the studio’s art, design, and animation.”
“Everyone really honed their craft during the course of development,” adds Studio MDHR Chief Operating Officer Maja Moldenhauer. “We’re so proud of our talented team, and the meticulous care they put into every element of this expansion. There are individual phases of bosses in The Delicious Last Course that contain more frames of animation than entire bosses in the original Cuphead, and we think fans and newcomers alike will really appreciate the depth and detail on display!”
