Cuphead has been featured at a few of the E3 events, but it was in 2017, that they finally announced that Cuphead would be coming to Xbox One and PC this year. Since its release people have been buying the heck out of it and having a love hate relationship with the game (it is a difficult game to play, super challenging indeed!).
“On the fictional Inkwell Isle, Cuphead and his brother Mugman are two fun-loving kids who live under the watchful eye of Elder Kettle. Against the elder’s warnings, the brothers wander into the Devil’s Casino run by King Dice. When the brothers go on a winning streak, the casino’s manager King Dice calls upon the Devil who raises the stakes. If Cuphead and Mugman can win another time, they would own the entire casino. If not, the Devil would have their souls. Cuphead rolls snake eyes and he and Mugman must give up their souls. The Devil makes a deal with them: collect the contracts of the other inhabitants of Inkwell Isle who have lost their souls until midnight in the next day and he might let the brothers off the hook. They visit the Elder Kettle who gives them a potion that allows them to fire blasts from their fingers to aid in their quest.”
Even though the game is still very new, the developer for the game has announced that Cuphead has gone platinum – already over 1 million purchase since the release! The breakdown for 1 million sales, is as a whole, no actual data was released in terms of who had the most sales – Xbox One or PC. But, this is the only 2 devices that the game is available on… for now?
This is what developers have said about the game:
“We have worked tirelessly over the past few years to deliver a game that remained true to our vision and we are both humbled and excited that so many people from around the world are playing Cuphead–it truly makes it all worth it,” wrote developers Chad and Jared Moldenhauer.
