Owing to its tight gameplay, memorable character design, and outstanding hand-drawn visuals, Studio MDHR’s Cuphead is one of gaming’s biggest breakouts of the past few years. It’s gotten graphic novels, Arby’s toys, and soon an awesome-looking Netflix series. And of course, there’s the DLC expansion, The Delicious Last Course, coming some nebulous time next year maybe. But what if that’s still not enough? What if you want to be able to appreciate a guy with a cup for a head every moment that you play games? Then check out this new Cuphead PowerA Nintendo Switch Enhanced Wireless Controller.
Per Nintendo Life, this Cuphead PowerA controller is like other PowerA Switch controllers we’ve covered before, offering Bluetooth 5.0, motion controls, mappable advanced gaming buttons, ergonomic design, LED indicators, and the ability to run up to 30 hours on two AA batteries. (Yeah, it requires batteries.) It releases on Dec. 15 but is available to preorder now, costing $49.99.
As far as PowerA Switch controllers go, this Cuphead rendition is particularly attractive. The yellow and orange really pop, and the cartoony explosions are cute and fit the franchise well. If you’ve been in need of a last-minute Christmas gift, maybe you should keep this piece of merchandise in mind.
