Cuphead Sells Three Million Copies

Studio MDHR, the developers behind the highly acclaimed Cuphead, have announced that the indie 2D platformer has sold three million copies since its release last year.

It's been a fairly long journey from Cuphead, which had been shown at multiple Microsoft E3 press conferences. The game was lauded for its fantastic art style, but faced skepticism for its boss rush structure, leading to some time spent on additional content. The game was well liked when it first released, reaching the one million milestone within weeks and then two million not long after.

At E3, a new DLC expansion was announced for the game with a third playable character and new bosses scheduled for release in 2019. You can find the trailer for the DLC below.

Steep Is No Longer Coming To Switch

Steep Is No Longer Coming To Switch

We liked Steep when it launched during the tail end of 2016, but things have been a bit strange for the snowboarding title since then, with a mix of regular updates and just a hint of spicy politics. The latest part of the saga is the quiet confirmation the game will no longer be heading to Nintendo's hybrid console.

The news comes from an unceremonious announcement from the game's Twitter account, which replied to a question from a fan asking for any updates on the Switch version of steep.

"We are wholly dedicated to support the live game, and made the decision to stop Steep development on the Nintendo Switch platform to focus on bringing new live content and challenges to Steep players instead." The company tweeted.

Sony To Release Translucent PS4 Pro In Celebration Of 500 Million PlayStations Sold

A new limited edition 2TB PlayStation 4 Pro is on the way, this time in a beautiful translucent blue color. Sony announced the console's release as a celebration of the 525.3 million PlayStation systems sold since the original PlayStation's launch. We recently learned Sony has shipped 83 million PS4 units, putting the console ahead of the PS3's numbers.

The limited edition console features a translucent dark blue casing, calling back to the days of translucent PlayStation controllers of the late 90s and early 2000s. This makes the lights on the front of the console look particularly cool.

The PlayStation logo on the console and other details on the controller are a nice gold, and the console features a gold plate on the front that displays the serial number.

Swery And Arc System Works' The Missing Gets New Subtitle, First Screens

Swery And Arc System Works' The Missing Gets New Subtitle, First Screens

Earlier this year, eccentric game developer Hidetaka "Swery" Suehiro and Arc System Works announced a collaboration, The Missing, with a curious little teaser trailer. Earlier today, they finally showed off a few screenshots from the game, and have added a new subtitle.

The Missing: J.J. Macfield and the Island of Memories is the new mouthful of a title for the collaboration. Judging from the screenshots, The Missing looks to be a 2D puzzle-platformer. In one of the screenshots you can see a player character (presumably Macfield) jumping across chandeliers. You can see a couple of luminescent food items, (which could be healing or powerups), as well as an owl (which could be a collectible).

Other screenshots show someone being electrocuted by the old "exposed wire in water" setup, as well as two lovebirds sitting by a fire.
