Cuphead will be available for the Switch on April 18, and is now available for pre-purchase. There's no official word on whether or not the game will support online multiplayer via Switch Online, but considering that neither the PC nor the Xbox One versions offer online multiplayer, it's probably a long shot for the Switch.

Cuphead is coming to another popular platform very soon!

Studio MDHR's incredibly hard Cuphead title is making its way to the Nintendo Switch.

Indie darling Cuphead was surprisingly announced to be coming to the Nintendo Switch in April yesterday and as a result, fans have already started entertaining the idea of the game's characters-Cuphead and Mugman-coming to Nintendo's fighting game Super Smash Bros. "Given the early stage of our work with StudioMDHR, the Xbox Live features will appear in a post-launch update to Cuphead on Nintendo Switch", Microsoft said. That's a surprising announcement in itself, as it seemed that Cuphead would remain a console exclusive on the Xbox One. The two were the first of the big three to incorporate cross-platform play, a long-requested but seemingly impossible feature that nearly seemed like a cruel, Mean Girls joke on Sony. For more on the partnership, check out Microsoft's update. If it incorporates all of Live's services - namely, matchmaking, chat services, and achievements - it'll also stopper a gap in the Switch's services, as most of Nintendo's social functions are relegated to its app.
