Cuphead Runs and Guns Its Way To One Million Copies Sold

Cuphead Runs and Guns Its Way To One Million Copies Sold

"We have worked tirelessly over the past few years to deliver a game that remained true to our vision."

Potentially alienating difficulty be damned. Cuphead has already sold one million copies, according to developers Studio MDHR's Twitter.

It's a quick turnaround for the game, given it only released two weeks ago on September 29th. Brothers Chad and Jared Moldenhauer of Studio MDHR announced the run-and-gun game's platinum status in a blog post today, writing, "We have worked tirelessly over the past few years to deliver a game that remained true to our vision and we are both humbled and excited that so many people from around the world are playing Cuphead – it truly makes it all worth it."

If you're not of those million folks who already check out the game, Cuphead is available now on Xbox One and PC for $19.99. For this animation nerd, it's a marvel to see in action.
