It’s been a painful wait for many Xbox One owners, but Cuphead is finally on the brink of release. The indie run-and-gun shooter immediately gained the interest of gamers due to its art style, which makes the game look like a 1930s cartoon, and after several years in development the release date for Cuphead was finally confirmed at this year’s E3 for September 29, 2017. With the title’s launch just around the corner, those planning to pick up the game can also have a look at its Achievements list.
Those who have seen videos of Cuphead in action will no doubt have picked up that the game has a fairly solid focus on boss battles, and that’s certainly reflected in some of the Achievements for the title. Players will, for instance, get 50 Gamerscore for gaining an A-Rank or higher in all bosses in the various stages of Inkwell Isle, while further Achievements are gained by beating a boss with an Extra Special Move or a Super Art, which will gain 15 and 20 Gamerscore respectively.
However, Cuphead is not just about the boss fights, and so there are plenty of other Achievements available for players that can be gained in other means. Completing the game on Normal or Expert will gain the player an Achievement and 100 Gamerscore, while completing a level without getting hit will get the user 30 Gamerscore. All in all, there’s 1,000 Gamerscore up for grabs from 24 Achievements, including three that are still secret.
Here’s a full rundown of the Achievements list for Cuphead:
