Despite only being out for less than two weeks, Cuphead’s The Delicious Last Course DLC has already sold one million copies — reaching the milestone faster than the base game did after its 2017 launch.

Cuphead became a fan-favorite game quickly after its original launch in 2017, and its popularity doesn’t seem to be dying down. In fact, the fandom seems to only be growing as new content sells like hotcakes.

Developer Studio MDHR announced that Cuphead’s newest DLC, The Delicious Last Course, has already sold over one million copies across all available platforms since arriving on June 30.

Reaching the record in less than two weeks, the DLC is selling out quicker than the original game did when it launched back in 2017 according to the studio.

Cuphead won over the hearts of fans for its amazing audio and visual design. The game also features challenging and fluid run and gun gameplay that has made it one of the more difficult games to release in recent years.

The 2017 title was first made available to Xbox and Windows users but was later allowed to be ported to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation and Steam. Since its release, the game has slowly curated a loyal fanbase.
