Cuphead to Get Pseudo-Physical Copy

Actual physical edition to release… eventually

Cuphead has successfully managed satisfy its player base with its fast-paced, run-and-gun action thus far, but developer StudioMDHR has decided to once again up the ante by offering the physical edition which many fans have been have been asking for. …Sort of.

Originally reported by Windows Central, a member of the Cheap Ass Gamer Reddit community revealed today that boxed versions of Cuphead will be going on sale as a Best Buy exclusive. Unlike most physical releases, however, this one will be missing something important  — a disc. Instead of containing a physical copy of the game, this “pseudo-physical” release will come with a voucher for a digital version of the game on both Xbox One and Windows 10.

While this may not be the exact physical release people have been asking for, it appears that there is still hope. StudioMDHR tweeted out earlier today that they do plan releasing a physical edition of Cuphead “in the future”. No further information on the physical release has been given at this time.

Cuphead is slated for release on Xbox One and Windows 10 on November 7 for $19.99. Will you be picking up this run-and-gun shooter for yourself? Have you already played it on Steam?

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
