Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course serves up a beautiful, difficult meal

LOS ANGELES – Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course is an apt title for this highly anticipated expansion. It’s the last piece of downloadable content for Cuphead, and it is, indeed, delicious. (Metaphorically speaking; we wouldn’t recommend eating it.) Between sumptuous visuals and a delectable difficulty level, Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course is a feast for the senses, albeit one that may not go down easy.

I went hands-on with Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course at Summer Game Fest, and it’s one of the few demos from the show that I couldn’t actually finish. I didn’t run out of time – I simply couldn’t get past its multi-stage boss fight, which has essentially no margin for error. The Delicious Last Course, like the initial Cuphead game, demands near-perfection at all times. To advance, you’ll have to learn by repetition.

The Delicious Last Course demo begins as you take control of Ms. Chalice: a new playable character for this piece of DLC. At first glance, Ms. Chalice seems more powerful than Cuphead and Mugman. Her default attack shoots lightning bolts in three directions; she has an innate double-jump ability; she can roll through enemy attacks with a moment of invincibility; she starts with an extra hit point. The flip side, however, is that she feels a bit floaty, and her default attack can be difficult to aim.

I became intimately acquainted with Ms. Chalice’s strengths and weaknesses when I squared off against The Delicious Last Course’s demo boss. This enemy is a rotund purple wizard, who floats above the battlefield and launches three different types of attacks at Ms. Chalice. In the first, he summons a group of small icicle minions that embed themselves in the ground, then march toward her. In the second, he whips out a crystal ball and shoots tarot cards at varying angles.
