„Cuphead“ ist ein nahezu perfektes Spiel. Die Optik sticht sofort ins Auge und der Charme weiß mit atemberaubendem Charakterdesign und nostalgischen Animationen jeden zu überzeugen. Das Spiel dahinter ist allerdings ebenso gut, denn die Bosse sind knallhart, allerdings niemals unfair. Jede Spielmechanik wurde gut durchdacht und garantiert eine präzise Steuerung sowie spaßiges Gameplay. Die Portierung auf Nintendo Switch ist nicht nur beeindruckend perfekt, sondern übertrifft das Original auf Xbox One S. „Cuphead“ auf Nintendo Switch ist ein Wunder, das niemand in seiner Sammlung missen sollte.

Nintendo Life (Apr 18, 2019)
Cuphead was an absolute masterpiece when it launched on Xbox 18 months ago and nothing has been sacrificed in its move to the Switch. It’s the same visually jaw-dropping, aurally delightful, knuckle-whiteningly difficult game it was on Microsoft’s console and the Switch’s library is all the better for its presence. Its focus on intense boss battles won’t be to everyone’s tastes, but as long as you know what you’re getting yourself into we can’t recommend it enough.

Cuphead is one of those must-have games that should never be ignored. The classic animation, the soundtrack and the overall presentation of the game makes it stand out amongst the rest to truly become a video game that will stand the test of time. Its difficulty may limit its enjoyment for some but for those who love a good challenge, Cuphead is a game that deserves a spot in every Switch library.

Cuphead makes the transition to Switch perfectly, matching up to the Xbox and PC counterparts with no compromise. If you liked Cuphead before, you will like it on the Switch. If not, then it’s still not for you. For newcomers however, it’s well worth checking out. Just be aware though, it’s a tough one.

Cuphead is a stunning game that truly stands out from its peers on a presentational level. That being said, its gameplay doesn't do anything particularly unique and its difficulty is implemented in a way that it basically requires fruitless repetition.
 
Big Boss Battle (B3) (Apr 18, 2019)
Even before I played it on Nintendo Switch, I considered Cuphead to be one of the most outstanding and unique titles that I have played in the last few years. The fact that it is now available on my favourite handheld console is more like icing than cake, but I can say without hesitation that Cuphead has been converted superbly well. As always with a Switch port, I’m disappointed that there’s no additional content, but there’s little to complain about when the original product was so good.
