Announced back in 2018 at E3, The Delicious Last Course was expected to launch this year for Cuphead. But that isn’t happening as Studio MDHR has delayed the DLC for a release window of 2020.

The Delicious Last Course will release in 2020 and the new trailer highlighted new bosses, newcomer Ms. Chalice in action, and a new salt shaker ally.

Here’s a statement from Studio MDHR about the upcoming DLC and its delay:

“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. 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.

With that in mind, we’re taking a page out of Chef Saltbaker’s book, and spending the necessary time to get the recipe just right – this means that we’ll be moving the release of ‘The Delicious Last Course’ to 2020. This wasn’t an easy decision to make, but we’re confident it’s one that will result in a higher quality experience that’s all the sweeter when it does arrive.”

Cuphead was oversaturated with delays leading up to its release. This was largely due to the game’s art style, which was hand drawn and gave the acclaimed indie title its distinct look.
