While not exactly surprising given the studio’s track record with schedules and delays, Studio MDHR has announced that Cuphead’s DLC, aptly titled The Delicious Last Course, will be delayed to sometime in 2020.

As someone who has followed the initial development period for the game, the delay is not surprising in the least. The Moldenhauer brothers are very well-known for their obsessive, perfectionist attention to all aspects of the game, especially the run-and-gun aspects. Aside from this, the studio also worried about the crunch associated with development that is widely being eyed right now, which can be gleaned from their update post on the Xbox news feed.

“While we initially announced a 2019 release date for the Delicious Last Course expansion, our highest priority is making sure this new adventure meets the meticulous level of care and quality we always strive for,” Studio MDHR co-director Chad Moldenhauer said in the post. “We want to be absolutely certain that this next adventure feels at home in the world of Cuphead and is full of moments that surprise and delight players. Furthermore, the development of the original game taught us a great deal about the importance of making things in a way that’s healthy and sustainable for our team.”

For the most part, a lot of players who have been exposed to Cuphead agree that waiting on the game is an integral part of the experience, as the main game itself went through numerous delays and released to critical acclaim, owing to the incredible polish the title has at launch compared to most other games.

The studio did, however, provide new footage on what we can expect from The Delicious Last Course, shown below in a 30-second teaser.

The teaser shows off the newest character, Ms. Chalice, in action. As already announced before, Ms. Chalice is different from Cuphead and Mugman as she has the innate ability to double jump, a mechanic notably absent from the base game. In the same Xbox news feed post, Moldenhauer stated that with The Delicious Last Course, you can replay the base levels with Ms. Chalice, which should offer up new and exciting variations in playing the game.

Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course will arrive on the Xbox One, PC via Steam and GOG and the Nintendo Switch sometime in 2020.
