After what seems like a lifetime of delays, Cuphead’s DLC, “The Delicious Last Course” has finally been baked to completion. Set to launch on June 30th, 2022, this new content will serve up a slew of new bosses, new weapons and charms, and the introduction of Ms. Chalice as an additional playable character.
The new adventure takes place on the fabled D.L.C. Isle, a previously undiscovered island off the coast of the Inkwell Isles. Upon reaching the island, the cast of lovable miscreants will find themselves embarking on a new quest on behalf on Chef Saltbaker. This quest will see the trio scavenging the rocky mountains, icy tundra, and even a Wild West-themed desert as they attempt to reach their as of yet unknown goal.
In a blog post on their website, Studio MDHR says they’ve been especially challenged by the development of this DLC due to the ongoing pandemic, but feel confident that The Delicious Last Course is “a true watermark of everything we do.” To illustrate this point, they even mention that the DLC bosses are some of the biggest in the game, some of which have individual phases that contain more attacks and animation frames than entire bosses from the base game.
I have no doubt that The Delicious Last Course will live up to the expectations we’ve set out for it. Cuphead was truly a work of passion, and I for one am absolutely thrilled to find new ways to experience it. While the hard part of waiting for a release date is now over, thus begins a different difficult stretch as we wait for that June 30th, 2022 release.
