Studio MDHR released Cuphead last year for Xbox One and Windows 10 and it became one of the most popular Microsoft published games in recent memory. The developer has now announced the game has reached a pretty big milestone this year.
Studio MDHR announced that Cuphead has gone triple platinum around the world meaning it has sold over 3 million copies in just under a year! You can read the studio’s full announcement posted down below.
Hello friends! We’re barely past the halfway mark of 2018, and are humbled to announce that Cuphead has already reached over 3 million copies sold! It’s hard for us to express just how appreciative we are to everyone who has played and enjoyed our niche little run & gun game with the wacky rubber-hose characters. To celebrate this huge milestone, we’re putting Cuphead on sale on Steam and Xbox for the next couple of days! So if you haven’t had a chance to wallop the Devil, it’s a good day for a swell battle! We’ll also be marking the occasion here at Studio MDHR with some extra-special giveaways over the next few days. Keep an eye out on Twitter or Facebook for some fun surprises. Looking back, 2018 has been a very exciting year for us.
It has also been announced recently that the game will be getting some new DLC in 2019 called “The Delicious Last Course”. Aside from adding new levels into the game, a new female playable character by the name of Ms. Chalice is joining the team.
Cuphead released last year to a lot of criticial acclaim thanks to its fast and addictive gameplay. Not to mention the 2D animation is something that has not been seen in the video game, TV or movie industries for many years. Just make sure you are good at 2D shooters because the game is a really challenging to play!
