Microsoft teased plans to bring Xbox Live to Switch and mobile last month in its schedule for the Game Developers Conference.

StudioMDHR's beloved Cuphead is headed to Nintendo Switch, and sometime after launch, it will be receiving an update that makes it compatible with Xbox Live.

Cuphead will come to Switch on April 18 and Xbox Live features will be added at a later date.

Cuphead's reveal opened the Nindies Showcase with an amusing old-fashioned tutorial regarding milk before highlighting the frantic gameplay of Studio MDHR's platform shooter. You'll play as Link or Zelda as they battle against enemies while keeping in time to a beat, with 25 classic tracks from the Zelda series appearing in remixed form.

The company also tested Xbox Live on Switch with Minecraft, though Cuphead might be the first game to bring the service to the console in full.

Brace Yourself Games, the studio behind the rhythmic dungeon crawler Crypt of the Necrodancer, is taking a crack at making its own Legend of Zelda game-with Nintendo's blessing. Nintendo announced today that it had reached a deal with their "our friends at Microsoft" over publishing privileges, later revealing the aforementioned line of support in a later posting.

The game will be published on the Switch, but it will still have a connection to Xbox, according to VentureBeat.

But Xbox Live is one thing.

Originally released in 2017, Cuphead earned an 8.8 from IGN. Alongside the release of the Switch version of Cuphead, a free update will be coming to the existing Xbox One and PC versions too.
