Cuphead : Over 3 Million in Total Unit Sales

Aug 10, 2018


Cuphead, the indie hit with a pension for difficulty and a classical animation aesthetic, has passed a major sales milestone.

Developer Studio MDHR, revealed that the game has now sold over 3 million units worldwide. In celebration of the achievement, the game will be on sale via Steam and the Xbox One for a limited time.

Studio MDHR “It’s hard for us to express just how appreciative we are to everyone who has played and enjoyed our niche little run & gun game with the wacky rubber-hose characters. So if you haven’t had a chance to wallop the Devil, it’s a good day for a swell battle!”

Released Sept. 29, 2017, the game places players in the role of Cuphead, a sentient tea cup out to regain his soul from the Devil after losing a bet at King Dice’s Casino. To do so, he must track down and defeat other debtors, blasting past their special powers gained from their occult contracts.

The game has continued to be a critical and fan darling for its challenge-based run and gun gameplay, hand-drawn 1930s animation style and engrossing soundtrack. The title also took home several awards in 2017 for its animation, art style and music from the Golden Joysticks, The Game Awards and many more events.

Cuphead is currently available on the Xbox One and PC.
