Cuphead Goes Platinum After Selling 1 Million Units

Cuphead has broken 1 million combined copies sold on PC and Xbox One, reaching platinum status.

After only about two weeks on the market, the run-and-gun shooter Cuphead has reached platinum status in sales after moving more than 1 million combined copies sold on both PC and Xbox One. The game has received critical acclaim from both critics and the public for its detailed cel-animated artsyle -- mimicking animation of the 1930s -- its constant variety and imaginative design, and its tough-as-nails gameplay.

The team over at Studio MDHR gave a statement on their website regarding the game's recent milestone and thanked fans for game's rapid success. Brothers Chad and Jared Moldenhauer of Studio MDHR had this to say:

Hello friends! Cuphead has only been out for two weeks and we never could have dreamed of the reception we’ve received from our amazing fans! Today, we wanted to take a moment to thank each and every one of you for your support and we’re excited to share that Cuphead has gone platinum with over 1 million units sold!
