Studio MDHR has announced that Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course, the expansion DLC for the critically acclaimed Cuphead, will be released on June 30, 2022.
The long-awaited release date was announced at The Game Awards 2021, and accompanied by a new trailer for The Delicious Last Course. On June 30, 2022, the expansion will be made available on all platforms Cuphead is available on; Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam and GOG.
The expansion will feature Ms. Chalice – better known to Cuphead veterans as Legendary Chalice – as a new playable character, who comes with a modified moveset and new abilities. Ms. Chalice can be used not only in the DLC, but also the original Cuphead levels, too.
The DLC’s levels will take you to a previously undiscovered Inkwell Isle, where new weapons and magical charms will help you take on the new bosses and help Chef Saltbaker.
“As with so many of our fellow developers, creating games during these unique times has brought with it a host of challenges, and we’re so grateful to our Cuphead community for their patience and excitement as we’ve pushed to make The Delicious Last Course a true high watermark of the studio’s art, design, and animation,” said Studio MDHR co-director, Chad Moldenhauer.
Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course has been delayed a number of times, first in 2019 and then again in 2020 amidst pandemic conditions.
