The Cuphead Show is coming to Netflix next month
With incredible animation, this new Netflix show captures the aesthetics of Studio MDHR’s game.
Netflix shocked us today with a new teaser for their upcoming exclusive, which will premiere in February. The Cuphead Show is a new animation that is an amazingly successful adaptation of the fantastic indie game Cuphead, directed by Chad and Jared Moldenhauer. Like the game, it is styled after old-time cartoons.
An animation made with love
The animated series, which will be set in the comedy genre, will follow Cuphead and his brother Mugman on their escapades. The protagonists will go across the bizarre environment of the Inkwell Islands in search of adventure and enjoyment. When their antagonist, Diablo himself, wants to play with the heroes, everything goes wrong.
It’s weird to witness a little indie game that was created with such passion become viral and then get picked up by Netflix for a TV program. Let’s hope that the ethos of the game that they conveyed in the video is maintained throughout the event. The Cuphead Show is set to premiere on February 18, 2022.
