Cuphead won’t change on the Switch in terms of difficulty. Some fans feared the game’s inclusion to the Switch would lead the game to be lowered in difficulty. This, of course, was refuted by creator Jared Moldenhauer as false while speaking to Kotaku during this year’s Game Developers Conference.

Cuphead is a run-and-gun that takes a lot of inspiration from classic cartoons. But, many gamer’s know that the game is challenging.

All I can really say is poor JoyCons.
Cuphead is releasing to the Switch April 18.
