Cuphead continues to get more content by way of free updates, but fans were eagerly anticipating the launch of The Delicious Last Course, premium DLC that was announced last year for a 2019 release. However, developer Studio MDHR took to the Xbox Wire today to provide an update to fans, with one piece of information letting players know they’ll need to wait just a bit longer than expected to dive into the new content.
“Our highest priority is making sure this new adventure meets the meticulous level of care and quality we always strive for,” co-director Chad Moldenhauer said in the Xbox Wire blog post. “We want to be absolutely certain that this next adventure feels at home in the world of Cuphead and is full of moments that surprise and delight players. Furthermore, the development of the original game taught us a great deal about the importance of making things in a way that’s healthy and sustainable for the team.”
The Delicious Last Course DLC is set to deliver new weapons, charms, and bosses on a new isle, as well as a completely new playable character, Ms. Chalice. This additional character has a distinct play style with unique abilities like a double jump, and will be playable across every isle in the game, giving players reason to revisit boss battles from the base game.
Studio MDHR is teasing even more surprises for the DLC as we get closer to release. Until then, you can see the teaser for the DLC above. Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course launches in 2020 for Xbox One, Switch, and PC.
