Remember when Cuphead burst onto the scene, displaying some fancy visuals that would hark back to the golden age of animation alongside a difficulty that would leave adults crying? Remember when we also heard of the expansion – The Delicious Last Course? Well, it’s finally on the horizon, the asking price is now known and we’ve seen it in action. Should you have enjoyed the base experience of Cuphead, you’re going to love what The Delicious Last Course brings.
Due to launch on June 30th 2022, playable on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch and PC (Steam and GOG), Cuphead – The Delicious Last Course will see the franchise stalwarts of Cuphead and Mugman joined by the one and only Ms. Chalice as players get to traverse the lands of Inkwell Isle.
Ms. Chalice comes to the fore with a new moveset in her arsenal and that in turn brings new abilities for you to make the most of. Whether it’s taking on the new bosses that frequent the new lands, or going back through the older stages of Cuphead to set new personal bests and records, is totally up to you.
New weapons will arrive too, along with additional charms to allow players the chance to really customise things to their own liking. Further challenges and monstrous bosses – because there just aren’t enough bosses already available in Cuphead! – will set the scene.
In all, the new key features coming about via Cuphead – The Delicious Last Course are…
- Featuring Ms. Chalice as a brand new playable character with a modified moveset and new abilities. Once acquired, Ms. Chalice is fully playable through the DLC and the original Cuphead adventure!
- Traverse a brand new Inkwell Isle and wallop the most wacky and monstrous bosses Cuphead has faced yet!
- Discover new weapons and charms to aid you in overcoming brand new challenges and setting new records on old bosses!
- Help Chef Saltbaker on a brand new adventure to uncover the mystery of Legendary Chalice’s secret quest!
“It feels surreal to say it, but the release of The Delicious Last Course is truly just around the corner!” said Studio MDHR’s Executive Producer and Studio Director Maja Moldenhauer. “In the truest sense of the words, this game has been a labor of love, and we cannot wait to see what the wonderful Cuphead community thinks of this next exciting adventure. In particular, we’re thrilled to finally share the untold story of Ms. Chalice, and I feel so proud of our team for the increased level of artistry on display in every department – from design, to animation, to music!”
But the very best thing about Cuphead – The Delicious Last Course? The price – $7.99 USD / $9.99 CAD / 7.99 EUR / £6.79 GBP. That feels an utter bargain.
We’ll be looking to review The Delicious Last Course as soon as possible and will be sure to remind you when that June 30th launch arrives.
