Cuphead is Coming to Switch This April

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

A classic run-and-gun game with stylized illustrations and boss battles that will make you throw your controller at your screen. There's also a dog-sledding game called The Red Lantern and oh how I want to play it!

A post on the Xbox Wire corroborates this info, with Microsoft saying that they'll "be working with StudioMDHR to implement Xbox Live features into Cuphead on the Nintendo Switch in the coming months".

At E3 2018, Studio MDHR confirmed Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course, an expansion that would introduce a new third, playable character, as well as a new isle, bosses, and more. Nintendo specifically thanked Studio MDHR and Microsoft for allowing it to come to Nintendo's console.

"Cuphead" will be one of the first games from Nintendo to included on Xbox Live support.

We are partnering with StudioMDHR to investigate bringing Xbox Live features beyond Xbox and PC to Nintendo Switch.

The old favourite term "roguelike" got rolled out again for this one, but Double Fine's trademark humour (glimpsed in the trailer reveal as studio head Tim Shafer put in a cameo appearance) should help stop this particular apocalypse from getting stodgy - we'll find out more this summer. In addition, Cuphead has been recognized with a wide range of awards including the 2017 Annie Award for Special Achievement in Animation, and Best Art Direction, Best Independent Game and Best Debut Game at The Game Awards 2017. The Nintendo Switch release should push that figure even further.
