Cuphead came out two years ago today, and since then it’s gone on to sell a whopping five million copies. Studio MDHR announced the news today along with an announcement that the game will be discounted on all platforms as part of the double birthday/sales milestone celebration.
In an act of on-brand showboating, the Cuphead soundtrack reached number one on the Billboard Jazz Charts (via VideoGamer). Cuphead: Selected Tunes From is the first ever video game soundtrack to reach such a position – even more impressive considering its two-year anniversary is this month. The album has since been kicked from the spot by a Miles Davis album (typical), but that’s no reason for them feel mugged off.
We’ve had some pretty exciting news on two of the big titles of 2017 recently. Cuphead is getting ported into some Tesla cars and it looks like Zelda: Breath of the Wild is getting a sequel. Now, imagine what it would look like if those two game worlds collided. Pretty cool, right? It looks like Cuphead’s devs think so – they’ve said they’d love to make a Zelda game.
Infamously tricky run-and-gunner Cuphead is just about to get ported again – but this time to something a bit different: Teslas. You know, the cars. The car manufacturer’s CEO Elon Musk has just revealed that the game will be heading to the dashboard screens of certain Tesla models, expected quite soon.
Cuphead was the talk of the town back when it came out in 2017, thanks to its unique combination of pixel-perfect platforming and Fleischer Brothers-style animation. Now it’s gotten a surprise update that adds some new features, new animation, and a bunch of localization.
