Publisher Microsoft and developer Studio MDHR announced Cuphead will launch for the Nintendo Switch via the eShop on April 18 for $19.99 USD / $25.99 CAD / £16.99 / 19,99€.

View the announcement trailer below:

Here is an overview of the game:

Cuphead is a classic run and gun action game heavily focused on boss battles. Inspired by cartoons of the 1930s, the visuals and audio are painstakingly created with the same techniques of the era, i.e. traditional hand drawn cel animation, watercolor backgrounds, and original jazz recordings.

Play as Cuphead or Mugman (in single player or local co-op) as you traverse strange worlds, acquire new weapons, learn powerful super moves, and discover hidden secrets while you try to pay your debt back to the devil!

So with the WiiU it was mostly people thinking that Nintendo were going 3rd party, now it seems that one of the other big 3 has gone and done that instead.
