Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course Bumped Back To 2020 Alongside New Trailer

Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course Bumped Back To 2020 Alongside New Trailer

You'll need to wait to savor the final sip.

Cuphead's victory lap over the devil will have to wait a little while longer. Developer Studio MDHR announced today that while the DLC expansion for Cuphead is coming along, it won't be out until next year.

The update comes alongside a new trailer, showing off a few of the new bosses you'll encounter in the DLC, like a giant mountain man and what appears to be an abominable snowman who makes swords come out of the ground. You can also catch a glimpse of the new playable character, Ms. Chalice.

Alongside gameplay updates and new content to fill an additional island alongside Inkwell Isle, the update will be bumped back to 2020. Co-director Chad Moldenhauer expanded on this in a press release:

"We want to be absolutely certain that this next adventure feels at home in the world of 'Cuphead' and is full of moments that surprise and delight players. Furthermore, the development of the original game taught us a great deal about the importance of making things in a way that's healthy and sustainable for our team."

Moldenhauer says it wasn't an easy decision, but one he's confident will result in a better experience. It's good that the studio is taking steps to avoid crunch and burnout, considering the stories surrounding the game's initial development, including quitting day jobs and remortgaging houses to make it happen. Hopefully the approach to The Delicious Last Course is a bit less intense, and will still lead to an excellent and successful salute to the animated shoot-em-up platformer.
