Nintendo has announced Cuphead is coming to Switch on April 18. Nintendo announced today that it had reached a deal with their "our friends at Microsoft" over publishing privileges, later revealing the aforementioned line of support in a later posting. According to an Xbox Wire update, it'll be working with Cuphead developers StudioMDHR to bring the Live features to the game's Switch players, though it didn't specify exactly which features those were. At the top of the list is "Mr. Switch" followed by "Mr. Xbox One" and "Demo User".

Cuphead was mentioned in a multi-part rumor suggesting Xbox One games, as well as Xbox Game Pass, could be making their way to the Nintendo Switch.

Speaking to Sportingbet , the 36-year-old former defender was asked how many of Liverpool's players would feature in City's first team.

The company also tested Xbox Live on Switch with Minecraft, though Cuphead might be the first game to bring the service to the console in full. Like Frito-Lay Variety Packs, all of these Nintendo Switch games are fun for families to enjoy together.

This comes shortly after Microsoft added Xbox Live support to mobile devices. Once a Microsoft exclusive, it was a pretty surprising reveal to say the least. Starting on March 25 and running through May 19, the spring promotion will include package art featuring the three characters Mario, Luigi and Yoshi from various Nintendo Switch games like New Super Mario Bros. Among the highlights is a Switch version of Cuphead, a new game from Double Fine called Rad, and a Zelda-themed successor to Crypt of the NecroDancer called Cadence of Hyrule.
