For the past month or so we have been hearing rumors that Cuphead is coming to Nintendo Switch, and Nintendo finally confirmed this during the recent Nindies Showcase. This beautiful, hand-drawn, run-and-gun platformer hits Nintendo's hybrid platform next month, and it's even getting Xbox Live support in a post-launch patch.
With Cuphead and Mugman coming to a Nintendo platform, this could open the by to a Super Smash Bros. appearance? Jared Moldenhauer certainly hopes so! Speaking with Game Informer and Kirk Scott, Nintendo's manager of publisher and developer relations, Cuphead ' s creator was ecstatic about the possibility.
"I have dreamed of Smash Bros. [Cuphead and Mugman] belong in there So basically if fans want it, I couldn't find what they wanted to know what they wanted .. I think they would support their fans … So if Nintendo was keeping their fans happy, then we should be more than happy to make that easiest transition.

Obviously, it's not really as simple as just signing a piece of paper, but it's an exciting possibility for the future. Nintendo has already decided Smash 's DLC fighters, but they could potentially do a second wave of DLC down the road. There is also the possibility of a Cuphead and Mugman getting into assistant trophies rather than playable fighters, and personally, I'd love to see Cuphead -themed level.
