Developers at Studio MDHR have recently released their biggest update for Cuphead. This patch includes character selections, new animations, bug fixes, and more. Fans who enjoyed playing as Mugman in co-op will be thrilled to see that he is now playable in the Single Player. But if you were hoping that Mugman would have a change in weaponry and abilities, then you would be out of luck.
Don’t let that discourage you though, this patch also includes brand new cutscene animations that make character transitions look smoother than ever. Additionally, bosses will now have improved fighting animations along with Cuphead and Mugman having new fight intros. The improved animation (known as locomotion) does not affect the colorised 1930s animation aesthetic.
Fans from all over the world will be pleased with the introduction of additional languages. Studio MDHR have announced that Cuphead has texts that translate in over 10 different languages, including French, Korean, Italian, Brazilian, Russian, German, European Spanish, Latin Spanish, Portuguese, Polish, Simplified Chinese, and Japanese. They also curated different fonts for each language which “felt just right for each audience.” The patch has also introduced new super arts, minor enemy animations, and bug fixes.
The most intriguing inclusion to the Update 1.2 is the secret bosses. YouTuber ProsafiaGaming has discovered three hidden bosses that had not been included in Cuphead up until this new patch. The first hidden boss can be found in during ‘The Root Pack’ fight in Isle I. When the giant onion appears from the ground, don’t attack it. Eventually it will leave and an angry radish will appear. The second boss will appear during the ‘Djimmi the Great’ fight in Isle II. Before the third phase into the fight, transform into the miniature plane and let him scan you. This will replace the large Cuphead puppet with a much smaller one. Lastly the third hidden boss can be found in the ‘Sally Stageplay’ fight in Isle III. After fighting Sally in a specific way shown in ProsafiaGaming’s tutorial, the dead husband will return in the third stage.
The free update is out now on Xbox One, PC, and Switch.
