Cuphead's The Delicious Last Course DLC delayed into 2021

Studio MDHR has announced that the first set of Cuphead DLC, the smartly named The Delicious Last Course, has been delayed to 2021.

The Delicious Last Course downloadable content - which sees Cuphead and his erstwhile friend Mugman joined by a new character, Ms. Chalice – take on a whole new island, brimming with dastardly cartoon threats.

The DLC was first announced way back in June 2018, with a tentative 2019 release date attached. But, wanting to achieve "the meticulous level of care and quality we always strive for" without resorting to crunch, Studio MDHR delayed the game into 2020. Now, thanks to the Covid-19 crisis, it has been pushed back once again.

"In true Studio MDHR fashion, we aren't content for this final chapter to be anything less than our best work," said the studio in a tweet. "Throughout development, we've challenged ourselves to put everything we learned from making Cuphead into the quality of The Delicious Last Course's animation, design, and music.

"Meeting this standard has been extremely challenging for us amid the global pandemic that has affected so many of our fellow developers. Rather than compromise on our vision in response to COVID, we've made the difficult decision to push back the release of The Delicious Last Course until we are confident it will delight the Cuphead community the way we feel it should."

The game's final DLC, then, will launch next year – though a solid date has yet to be determined.

"We know many of you have been waiting to return to the Inkwell Isles," Studio MDHR says, "and our goal is to make the trip back there next year a truly magical one."
