GAME*Spark Review: Cuphead The Delicious Last Course -Delicy but not full of stomach

A jazz BGM with noisy, a slightly dark look, a slightly black look, a film dirt, and a noise that the cute character that moves lively. Cuphead , which combines the 1930s cartoon animation tribute to the 1980s action shooting, such as Soultra and Rockman, surprises the gamers with high quality and high difficulty. I made the gamer in agony by degree.

It has been five years since its release in September 2017 (Japanese version is April 2019), but Cuphead continues to shine as a masterpiece in the video game world. It is a work. About five years later, DLC has appeared to enjoy amazing quality content again.

In this article, GAME of CupHead additional DLC Cuphead the Delicious Last Course * released for PC (Steam/ One/Nintendo Switch on June 30, 2022 SPARK review will be delivered. When writing this review, I play using the PC version.

Participation in Miss Charis of the Ghost Girl! A little character for beginners

Cup head and Magman headed to a certain island to see Miss Charis at the beginning of DLC. When she feeds Magman a mysterious cookie, Charis revives in this world. Instead, Magman exchanged his soul and became a ghost.


However, it is temporary to be able to revive in this way, and over time, it returns to ghosts. To come back to life forever (?), You have to eat the Wonder Tart made by the chef Salt Baker. To collect the ingredients, the cup heads will depart for this adventure.

In order to access this content, it is necessary to clear the Mausoleum I stage in the main story. If it has been cleared, a boat will appear under the mausoleum and you can access the new island, which is the DLC part.

Miss Charis can be used by selecting cookies from the charm column of equipment. In addition to being able to handle new actions such as two-stage jumps, rolling that can be avoided in invincible state, and dashes that can perform Paris at the same time, HP is set to 4 by default, so it is a character for beginners.

On the other hand, there are disadvantages such as low jumping power and not being able to use amulet frames. Although it is a little easier, the operation feeling is different from the cupheads, so it is made as a character that can do another way of fighting instead of the upward compatible strong character unique to DLC.

As with the cup head, Charis's expression and motion are very rich. A little guessing expression when a mistake or a shooting, and the expression at the time of death are full of cuteness that is slightly different from the cupheads, and it is a reason you want to use it alone.

The flow of DLC games is generally the same as the main story. Explore the world map island and challenge the boss stage scattered in various places. The newly prepared boss characters are unique to the cowgirl-like fa and insect gang groups, and the Yukio Akanoba. The development that switches for each phase is also comical, and you will be looking forward to the next waiting mechanism.

Of course, the difficulty level is high, and the regret of I was able to defeat it a little more...! However, some boss attacks had small bullets with poor visibility, and there were some situations where they felt some stress. However, you can still enjoy the Cuphead experience that gradually learns the pattern while dying and gradually gets used to the fierce attacks of the enemy.

The BGM of each field and boss is also excellent, and there are cool jazz songs that excite intense actions. Personally, I had the impression that it was a little more calm than the main story.

You have to mention the high quality of localization. The basic parts such as the character tone and retro fonts are well made, but that is not all. The bosses have appeared on the bosses, such as Mo-quarrel and no sound of gyu, and times, such as chairs are already drunk and no shinning. I was surprised at the high quality of English translation.

By the way, if you have played the main story, you may have noticed that the good points such as boss battles, BGM, and localization are common to the main part, not the unique charm of DLC. However, I was very happy to be able to revisit the world of Cuphead with a fresh feeling. Even if there are no significant additional elements, I think that it is worth it just because it takes time and effort.

A new one is added to the amulet and weapons lineup that can be purchased at the shop. You can purchase new items that increase your life in exchange for a wide range of shooting and attack power that can be attacked on the entire screen, and can be used not only in DLC but also in the main part of CupHead.

One thing I was worried about was a charm item called Heart Ring, which makes the game difficulty. The effect of recovering life in the first, third and sixth times of Paris is awarded. In Cuphead before the DLC release, there is no HP recovery or poor, but by simply adding this protection, you can increase the life up to three times. This will collapse the cycle of the real pleasure of this work, Death and remember, and the boss battle, which should be difficult, will be very easy. **

Nevertheless, it is also true that the high difficulty has become a hurdle that calms and cannot enjoy the wonderful art and BGM of CupHead, and this Heart Ring is the world view of CupHead. I feel that I want to make it more casual and enjoyable. Also, if you don't want to lower the difficulty in the first place, you don't have to choose Heart Ring, so it's a place to evaluate.

What I was most concerned about in this DLC was that volume insufficient . In the DLC boss battle, the main, shooting and amulets are restricted, and five subs that fight only in Parry will appear. Compared to the main part with three islands ( + Final World) and 19 main bosses, the play time is about 5 hours, and it has an unsatisfactory impression. The 2D platformer-like run & gunsstage that moved toward the goal while defeating the enemy was abolished, so I felt more unsatisfactory.

Of course, we do not seek the volume of the main level, and there is no doubt that it is more quality work, rather than matching the cheap price setting of 780 yen. Interviews with IGN JAPAN magazine revealed that the size of the orchestra is larger in addition to the number of animations close to the main story, so it is not difficult to imagine that it spent a lot of effort in production. Nevertheless, it is a fact that it was a DLC that is now available, about five years after the release of the main part, and it was a bit unsatisfactory. I wanted to be full.... It is a honest feeling as a Cuphead fan.

General comment: ★★★

good point
・ As in the main part of Cuphead, attractive production and game design ・ Miss Charis, a very cute new character ・ For fans, just a new content is enough ants

Bad point ・ I can't be full due to lack of volume ・ A small and poorly visible bullet seen on some stages
