Studio MDHR have just announced that the award-winning game Cuphead will be released on the Nintendo switch on April 18th. As first mentioned in a Microsoft GDC post this morning, it will also have Xbox Live support:
“Growing out of these recent discussions, we are partnering with StudioMDHR to investigate bringing Xbox Live features beyond Xbox and PC to Nintendo Switch. Yes, this means that fans will now have the opportunity to experience StudioMDHR’s award-winning debut game on Nintendo Switch with Xbox Live! We’ll be working with StudioMDHR to implement Xbox Live features into Cuphead on the Nintendo Switch in the coming months. Given the early stage of our work with StudioMDHR, the Xbox Live features will appear in a post-launch update to Cuphead on Nintendo Switch. We’d like to thank Studio MDHR and Nintendo for their help in this investigation!“
This is a pretty interesting crossover and I’m curious where it will lead. I’m also excited to play the Switch version of the game and see how it compares to the Xbox One version!
