When it launched in 2017, Cuphead was a breath of fresh air. The game stood proudly aside from all the other run-and-gun games with its gorgeous art-style. With every frame of animation being hand-drawn it really stood out. We really liked the game when we reviewed it (despite the crushing difficulty level). This meant that we were quite excited when we heard that there was more coming. The rather brilliantly titled Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course is DLC (see what they did there) for the original game. It was supposed to be coming out this year but we now have news that it has been delayed until 2020. The announcement was made via a Tweet from the Xbox Wire account, you can check it out below –
