Good news for all of us too inept to play the notoriously difficult Cuphead: now we can avoid challenging ourselves and just admire its charming visuals on Netflix. The company has just made a deal with developer Studio MDHR to turn their 2017 run-and-gun video game into a series.
Titled The Cuphead Show! (Also Starring Mugman), the cartoon will reportedly maintain the Fleischer Studios-style ’30s animation style of the game, Cuphead co-creator Chad Moldenhauer promising each frame will be (digitally) drawn by hand. He added, “It’s safe to say that [the showrunners are] aiming for the same kind of vibe that the game hints at.”
So, blindingly frustrating?
