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.
