Cuphead’s long-awaited delicious Last Course DLC predates an already legendary challenging game. With six of the toughest enemies in the game and a whole new aisle to fight through, it’s never been harder to earn achievements with defeating every boss. In addition to the challenges posed, the DLC also introduced a ton of new tools at the player’s disposal, including powerful weapons, charms, and even a brand new playable character. However, the most powerful new addition isn’t something you can buy at Porcrind’s Emporium. Here’s how to make your wish come true and double your HP with a hostage.
How to Summon Jimmy in Cuphead
Summoning hostages is quick and easy and can be done right from the start of the game. All you have to do is stand on one spot on the map and run in a tight circle. After a while, the hostage will appear and announce, “You have freed the hostage!” With it, you’ll double your HP and have a six heart baseline until you beat the next boss (you can go higher by equipping the right Charms).
As powerful as it is, It has its limitations. For one, you only have three wishes in your hand for your first playthrough, so use them wisely! Try to save them for the hardest bosses at the end of the game if you can. (Once you beat the game you will have infinite will to work with). Additionally, it only applies to easy and regular mode, so there will be a huge challenge for the expert. Finally, defeating a boss using Disney’s Will will drop your final score by a full letter grade, so wait if you’re going for Sheriff, Boss, Mayor, or Ranger.
That said, the hostage’s will is one of the most powerful new tools available in the DLC. Be smart when you use it–and be sure not to accidentally activate it by wandering around the map–and you’ll be downing the devil before you know it.
