Nintendo is letting an indie studio develop a Zelda game

While it may have been easy to get swept up in the news of Cuphead finally making its way to the popular portable console, another game caught the attention of many gamers everywhere.

Cuphead has been fully localised in 10 new languages: French, Italian, German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Polish, Russian, Japanese, Korean, and Simplified Chinese. Since then, a port for macOS has extended the number of players with access to the title, and Nintendo is now looking to expand that playerbase even further with Cuphead's release on Switch.

Not content with a bunch of killer announcements, Nintendo saved the best for last: a version of Crypt of the Necrodancer on Switch.with Zelda.

However, while Cuphead will come to Switch on April 18, the Xbox Live features will be added as an update post-launch. "Yes, this means that fans will now have the opportunity to experience StudioMDHR's award-winning debut game on Nintendo Switch with Xbox Live!"


"Cuphead" will be one of the first games from Nintendo to included on Xbox Live support.

"It's no secret that Cuphead is a direct descendent of retro action games like Contra on the NES, so it's surreal to finally have one of our own games on a Nintendo system", said Studio MDHR Co-Director Chad Moldenhauer.

Are you excited for this little surprise Zelda release for the Switch? However, they claim that they now do not have any plans for a full Xbox Live Software Development Kit, so it sounds like this will be more of a game-by-game basis.
