Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course serves up the perfect expansion


First announced all the way back in 2018, Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course is a long-anticipated DLC. There’s a whole new island to explore, alongside a new playable character, new items, new bosses, and more. 

The setup is fittingly simple. Cuphead and Mugman travel to a far off-island where they learn that Ms. Chalice is trying to recover her body and leave the Astral Plane. She can do so temporarily — allowing her to replace Cuphead or Mugman as a playable character — but to do so forever, she needs a special treat being cooked up by Chef Saltbaker. 

The ingredients needed for this cosmic-culling culinary confection are held by a menagerie of new bosses scattered across this fourth island. Beating them is no easy task, so you’ll need every bit of skill you’ve got.

While it’s been a long wait for this DLC, it was well worth it. Studio MDHR has pulled out every trick in its sleeves in order to create a visual and auditory feast. The animation here is somehow improved from the already-impressive style in the original game, with every single frame of a boss fight utterly packed with detail.
