Studio MDHR has announced that Cuphead’s final expansion, The Delicious Last Course, has been delayed until 2020. The studio stated that they want The Delicious Last Course to meet their level of quality, and avoid crunch time trying to get the extra content out.
“While we initially announced a 2019 release date for the Delicious Last Course expansion, our highest priority is making sure this new adventure meets the meticulous level of care and quality we always strive for,” Co-Director Chad Moldenhauer stated on Xbox Wire. “We want to be absolutely certain that this next adventure feels at home in the world of Cuphead and is full of moments that surprise and delight players. Furthermore, the development of the original game taught us a great deal about the importance of making things in a way that’s healthy and sustainable for our team.”
“With that in mind, we’re taking a page out of Chef Saltbaker’s book, and spending the necessary time to get the recipe just right – this means that we’ll be moving the release of The Delicious Last Course to 2020.”
The Delicious Last Course will include a number of additions to Cuphead. The expansion will introduce a new island, bringing with it a number of new bosses, weapons, and charms. The Delicious Last Course will also introduce a new character: Ms. Chalice. Ms. Chalice will have a unique play style and abilities, such as a double-jump. She will be playable in all of Cuphead’s islands, giving players a new reason to go back and experience the game again.
Cuphead is available now on PC, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One. The Delicious Last Course will release in 2020.
