MDHR announced that 2017’s beloved animated platformer Cuphead is finally coming to PlayStation 4. It’s available now on the PlayStation Store for $19.99.

“Many of us on the team grew up exploring the worlds of classic PlayStation titles, from Resident Evil to Vandal Hearts,” says Studio MDHR Co-Director Chad Moldenhauer. “It’s surreal to think about players adventuring through the Inkwell Isles with a PlayStation controller in hand. To all the impassioned PlayStation fans who’ve sent us messages over the years: we’re so excited for you to get a chance to experience Cuphead firsthand. We’re also hugely thankful to the wonderful team at Xbox, who continue to empower us to bring our game and our story to new audiences.”

Cuphead originally launched in 2017 on PC and Xbox One after a lengthy development cycle. It launched to critical acclaim and commercial success. It was ported to the Switch in 2019, and has sold over 6 million copies to date.

Xbox owners are also getting some extra treats via a free update. The update adds a digital art gallery, commentary features, and the full soundtrack. The date of this free update has not yet been announced.

Cuphead is available on PC, Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It’s rated E10+. An expansion, The Delicious Last Course, was announced back in 2018 and is set to release later this year.
