Studio MDHR has shared a few additional details about the Switch version of Cuphead. We have information about the game’s frame rate, resolution, and more.

Here’s the full roundup:

Cuphead was announced for Switch during today’s Nindies Showcase, and it’s launching pretty soon. Studio MDHR intends to have it ready on April 18 – at least digitally.

Thankfully, a physical version has now been confirmed as well. The retail copy will drop sometime after the DLC launches so that the cartridge will have everything included. No word yet on a possible release timeframe.

Another reason you may want to hold out is due to the package itself. Aside from the game, it sounds like some goodies could potentially be included.
