A fun little side note to Cuphead as the game is now out on Nintendo Switch, the developers added an update to let you choose your character. Studio MDHR announced a free update this week that will allow you to decide whether you play as Cuphead or Mugman as the primary character you use to go through the game and allowing a two-player game to switch off between them instead of P1 being Cuphead and P2 being Mugman.
And remember…our most exciting Free Content Update yet is included in today's Nintendo Switch version of Cuphead!
Play as Mugman in single-player, select from 11 new languages, and so much more. Also available now on Xbox, Steam & GOG !! pic.twitter.com/Ta7KFXQDSr

There really isn't much of a difference between the two characters beyond their animation, but considering Cuphead is the default second character, Mugman kind of feels like the Luigi of the game and never gets his due unless you're playing co-op. At least now you can have fun playing with the blue guy in the levels.
