  • Whoa: Crypt of the Necrodancer is hitting Switch in Zelda form

Nintendo recently held their Nindies showcase, highlighting all of the wonderful indie titles making their way to the Nintendo Switch. If you already know you want to pick up Cuphead on the Switch, you can pre-purchase it beginning today on the eShop, though at the time of this writing, the game's listing doesn't seem to be live. What's more, the game is available for pre-purchase starting today for: $19.99 United States dollars, $25.99 CAD, £16.99, and 19,99€. While it's undoubtedly a spin-off that Clark tells me "is first and foremost a new entry in the NecroDancer universe", he also said that they "took extensive care to ensure that it could be considered to be both" a Zelda game and a Necrodancer game.

Cuphead will be available for the Switch on April 18, and is now available for pre-purchase.

Microsoft and StudioMDHR have confirmed that they are working together to bring Xbox Live features to the Switch version too.


An Xbox.com update reads, "Growing out of these recent discussions, we are partnering with StudioMDHR to investigate bringing Xbox Live features beyond Xbox and PC to Nintendo Switch". Nintendo specifically thanked Studio MDHR and Microsoft for allowing it to come to Nintendo's console.

At the end of 2017, Cuphead brought its unique hand-drawn art style and hard gameplay to PC and Xbox One owners.

At the beginning of the year, GDC released the results of its 2018 survey, part of which showed that over half of respondents who released games on multiple platforms saw those games sell as well or better on Switch as on other platforms.
