The new installment is exclusively coming to Xbox One and PC.
The original “Cuphead” became a near instant hit after word spread around just how difficult the indie title is and the intriguing design drew attention as well, based on classic cartoons of the 1930s . To get through the infuriating bosses, players would have to run and gun at impressive speeds and keep a cool head. “Cuphead” was nominated for several BAFTA awards earlier this year, and won for Best Music.
The upcoming DLC will bring a new playable character and plenty of new bosses to take on.
“In ‘Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course,’ Cuphead and Mugman are joined by Ms. Chalice for a DLC add-on adventure on a brand new island,” the official description reads. “With new weapons, new charms, and Ms. Chalice’s brand new abilities, take on a new cast of multi-faceted, screen-filling bosses to assist Chef Saltbaker in Cuphead’s final challenging quest.”
The announcement of the new DLC took place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, as a part of Xbox’s E3 2018 briefing. Microsoft showed off 50 games at the event, with 18 exclusive titles and 15 titles receiving their worldwide debut.
