Your PC has to be up to snuff to get the new stuff for Cuphead

, | News

Cuphead, that dastardly but charming cartoon side-scroller from Studio MDHR, just launched on Nintendo Switch and got a free update on other platforms. The 1.2 update brings older versions up to par with the Switch advancements like character selection right from the beginning of the game, fully animated cinematics, and updated art and effects for enemies.

The PC update comes with a caveat. The developers had to update the whole game to a new version of the Unity engine, leaving less capable systems behind. If you’re stuck on DirectX 9, you’ll need to play an old branch of the game, which means you won’t experience any of the new content. The good news is that this is perfect fodder for debating which version is actually harder and more a measure of your gaming skills.
