There’s another anniversary taking place and this time it’s to celebrate Cuphead on the Nintendo Switch. Yep, believe it or not, but Cuphead and Mugman have now been on the hybrid system for an entire year!
One year ago, this news was the headline act of a Nindies broadcast – with Nintendo thanking its friends over at Microsoft. The creator Studio MDHR was just as thrilled at the time, explaining how the run ‘n gun shooter was a descendent of retro action games such as Contra on NES, and noting how it was “surreal” to finally be on a Nintendo system.
To celebrate this special occasion, you can get the game for 25% off its regular price until April 25th. Here’s the official confirmation of this via Twitter:
How time flies!! One year ago today, Cuphead officially released on Nintendo Switch. To all those who discovered our little animated adventure, or took another trip to the Inkwell Isles: our sincerest thanks.

In this time, it’s even got its own Mii Fighter costume and event in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
In our review, we said this 2D side-scroller was an absolute masterpiece. And provided you know what you’re getting yourself into, it’s a blast.
