Get Ready to Party Like It’s the 1930s at the Cuphead Launch Party

It feels good to say it – Cuphead is almost here!

Whether it’s the gorgeous hand-drawn 1930s inspired artwork, the wonderfully jazzy big band soundtrack, the incredibly precise gameplay or frantic antics in local co-op, Cuphead has something to offer everyone. To celebrate its upcoming launch on Sept. 29 for Xbox One, Windows 10 PC and Steam, Xbox and StudioMDHR will be hosting a Cuphead launch party that day on 7-11 p.m. PDT in the iconic Meltdown Comics and Collectibles store in Los Angeles.

The party will feature Cuphead creators Chad and Jared Moldenhauer, playable stations of the game, unique artwork shown on display and light refreshments – all in a 1930s-themed environment inspired by the game. The event is free to the public but fair warning, RSVP is first come first serve and we’re expecting a packed house! Be sure to claim your spot on the Eventbrite invitation.

Don’t forget – if you haven’t picked up Cuphead yet, you can pre-order in the Xbox, Windows Store or on Steam for $19.99. The game is an Xbox Play Anywhere title, meaning you get both Xbox and Windows 10 PC versions for a single purchase.
