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!

I'm just your average basement-dwelling eclectic and eccentric video gamer who does his best to make a point, share experiences, and talk to people without swallowing his own tongue. I'm mostly into Platformers and RPG's, but I'll try pretty much anything once, and I'm also trying to find something different and interesting to play, and then share with as many people as I can. I can also beat the entire first world in Super Meat Boy while wearing oven mitts.
