During the recent GDC 2019 event, Game Informer managed to get a interview with the co-creator of Cuphead Jared Moldenhauer after the recent Nindies presentation!
During the interview, Moldenhauer mentioned that he would really love to see Cuphead and Mugman join Super Smash Bros Ultimate very desperately!
Check it out below:
“I’ve dreamed of Smash Bros,” said Moldenhauer. “[Cuphead and Mugman] belong in there. So basically if fans want it, I couldn’t see how Nintendo wouldn’t want the fans to get what they wanted. I think they would because they support their fans a lot . . . So if Nintendo was keeping their fans happy, then I’d be more than pleased to make that the easiest transition. Just a piece of paper, we don’t need anything. You can have those characters make an appearance.”
I asked which characters Moldenhauer would most like to see go up against Cuphead in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. “Maybe just Ice Climbers? Like a two versus two. I’ve been [playing] a lot of the NES mini, and it’s not my favorite game. That’s why Ice Climbers came up because it’s like ‘Well, that one isn’t fun,’ so I kind of want to take those characters and then demolish them.”
If we have any more information to share we will cover it here at NintendoSoup so stay tuned for more!
