Cuphead, the stylishly animated run-and-gun shooter that debuted on Xbox One and Windows PC, is coming to PlayStation 4. Studio MDHR announced a PS4 port of Cuphead on Tuesday, with a surprise twist: It’s out today on the PlayStation Store. The PS4 version costs $19.99.

Xbox fans are also getting an update for Cuphead. The developer is adding a digital art gallery, behind-the-scenes commentary features, and a playable soundtrack to the game. The developer did not provide a release date for the update.

Cuphead was first released in September 2017. After the game’s Xbox One and PC release, Studio MDHR brought the game to Mac and Nintendo Switch. The studio is currently working on an expansion for Cuphead called The Delicious Last Course, which was originally scheduled for release in 2019. Studio MDHR did not provide an update on the DLC’s release date, other than to say the studio is “still working hard on it,” but “it’s taking us a little longer than we thought.” Maja Moldenhauer of Studio MDHR said the game’s DLC will be available on all platforms on day one, in an interview with Geoff Keighley.

Studio MDHR is also working with Netflix on an animated series called The Cuphead Show!
