It's a good day for a swell battle, because Studio MDHR’s Cuphead is now available Nintendo Switch! Take on massive, screen-filling bosses in this run & gun platformer inspired by classic cartoons of the 1930s, featuring 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!

Finally been able to play it! It is challangeing but not that difficult (so far) and loads of fun. It runs good but in some few cases I have experienced slowdowns, not game breaking but still worth mentioning.

Digital foundry poured over hours of the game and found it locked 60 in docked and portable. Could be an issue with your SD card maybe?

Might very well be that, but it was the typical NES platformer style of slowdown, a lot happening on the screen simutainliously and a couple of skipped frames in noticable in a jump.

I'll grab it sometime when it's on sale. Definitely a game that i want to play, but wasn't willing to previously buy an X1, just to play it.
