A major free content update will launch for all platforms on the same day, which adds requested features such as playable Mugman in single-player, new fully animated cutscenes, never-before-seen art and fight intros, 10 additional languages, a plethora of bug fixes, and plenty of secrets for players to discover.

The classic run and gun action game is currently available for Xbox One, PC, and Mac. Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:

Cuphead is a classic run and gun action game heavily focused on boss battles. Inspired by cartoons of the 1930s, the visuals and audio are painstakingly created with the same techniques of the era, i.e. 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!
