It feels like it's gone under the radar a bit recently, but the long-awaited DLC for Cuphead has arrived today in the form of Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course, and the best bit is that it's only £6.79 / $7.99 to buy!
The reviews have been going out today as well, so we've gathered some of the impressions we've found from across the web, and it's safe to say it's getting an amazing reception so far! Here are some highlights:
"Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course is the perfect send off for a game that embodies the phrase “one of a kind.” Experienced players will likely muscle their way through the six bosses and optional King of Games minibosses in just a handful of hours, but the quality of those hours far outweighs their quantity."
"Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course is worth the long wait. Ms. Chalice gives players a brand-new way to approach each boss, and each of the new boss fights is an imaginative triumph, from both a visual and gameplay perspective. Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course adds more than a cherry on top; it changes the recipe to create a game that's more scrumptious than before."
"After all these years there still isn’t anything quite like Cuphead. I wish that we got more than a few hours’ worth of stuff, but the nature of The Delicious Last Course augmenting the original game means that it’ll impact every timeless future playthrough. If you hated the game before, the DLC won’t do much to change your mind. If you loved it, you should probably pick it up immediately."
Game Informer (8.75/10)
"The Delicious Last Course sends our jolly beverage containers off on a high note. It offers an entertaining final exam of your skills while also freshening up the original adventure by giving players a cool new character to enjoy. It’s more Cuphead at the end of the day, but I had a great time revisiting Studio MDHR’s wonderful animated universe, testing my mettle against its villains, and feeling fist-pumping triumph all over again."
"The Delicious Last Course is excellent. Hardcore fans will adore the addition of new bosses, a new playable character, and a surprising amount of content that manages to delight despite its relative familiarity. I’ll admit that returning to Cuphead after so long meant I had to get my ass kicked a few times before finding my groove again, but once everything clicked the magic returned, and I couldn’t stop until all the bosses had been dealt with."
Polygon (No Score)
"If you’ve been desperate for more Cuphead, this is likely the last new content you’ll see. Thankfully it’s a hell of an encore for Cuphead, Mugman, and now, Ms. Chalice."
The Metacritic scores are still being calculated at the time of writing, but based on these early reviews, it looks like Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course is going to be pushing the 90s in terms of a rating, which is a fantastic result!
Will you be picking up Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course this week? Let us know down below!
I'll be downloading this later. The base game was absolutely fantastic. A perfect combination of artstyle and creativity combined with fun "just one more try" gameplay.
Now this is value for money for a DLC unlike the recent Outriders Worldslayer
Can it be bought separately?
I love Cuphead but I really suck at it. Still haven’t finished the original game!
For $7.99 is that the base game and the DLC?
@Tsushima Is it bad? I really enjoyed the base game and was looking forward to the DLC.
@GuyinPA75 @fabisputza007 $7.99 is the DLC on its own - you need to own the base game to play it.
@GuyinPA75 In my Opinion Worldslayer is way over priced for what you get. I also enjoyed the base
Cuphead is a masterpiece, and it took them many years to create this DLC, so that comes as no surprise.
Haven't played Cuphead yet but this price is for the dlc is really enticing so will probably buy the base game with it also, hope they make a sh#tload of money with this so others will follow with a similar pricing for dlc ... Awesome
I need to finish the game
Can't wait to buy this tonight and never actually finish it
Wasn't exactly a fan of the original, good looking graphics but the boss rush style wasn't my thing.
