Pull on your nostalgia boots and enjoy Cuphead on your Nintendo Switch! This bullet-hell, boss rush platformer was originally released on XBox and PC exclusively in 2017 but is now playable on the go. Dodge insane attacks and defeat stressful boss battles that will give you gray hairs. Heavily inspired by early 1930’s cartoons, Cuphead is beautifully animated with hand drawn cels and an all original jazz soundtrack. Cuphead feels so at home on the switch, you’ll want to play it again and again to get a new high score. Yes, it is another couch co-op featured here, but even if you have played Cuphead already on PC or Xbox, you’ll want to play it again on Switch.
