It has been almost a year since Netflix revealed back in June 2019 that the streamer would come out with ‘The Cuphead Show!’ an animated series based on the game Cuphead. It features adventures of Cuphead and Mugman across the Inkwell Isle, exploring the characters and areas beyond the ones we have seen in the video game. Although the series primarily targets children, some of the gags and jokes are bound to be appreciated by adults as well. Unlike the video game, which is animated using traditional pen-and-paper methods, the series goes with hand-drawn characters and movement.
The official Netflix synopsis reads “Follow the misadventures of the impulsive Cuphead and his cautious but persuadable brother Mugman in this animated series based on the hit video game.” Recently, Netflix shared a sneak peek of the show, which has got tongues wagging again. While you check out the official clip below, let us tell you about when ‘The Cuphead Show’ is bound to arrive on the platform.
