Better Late Than Badly Baked
After a long stretch of silence, it seems like that delicious Cuphead DLC has been pushed back to 2020. While this isn’t a colossal shock given how long we waited for the original game, it’s still a sorrowful bit of news. At least there’s a tiny trailer to tide us over!
Embedded below, the teaser in question gives up split-second glimpses at some of the new bosses en route. Both of them are very chilly in nature, or is that a heaping helping of salt? A shortcut to suffering, either way. Beyond this brief teaser, Studio MDHR also released a statement about the delay:
While we initially announced a 2019 release date for the ‘Delicious Last Course’ expansion, our highest priority is making sure this new adventure meets the meticulous level of care and quality we always strive for. 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.
With that in mind, we’re taking a page out of Chef Saltbaker’s book, and spending the necessary time to get the recipe just right – this means that we’ll be moving the release of ‘The Delicious Last Course’ to 2020. This wasn’t an easy decision to make, but we’re confident it’s one that will result in a higher quality experience that’s all the sweeter when it does arrive.
Meaning, maybe those long development cycles are good for your staff after all? If patience and care are what’s needed to make a game like Cuphead, then take all the time you need. The Delicious Last Course is set for release on PC, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch sometime next year.
