The Cuphead Show Hits Netflix Next Month, New Trailer Released

Cuphead and his trusty drink-holding brother will hit Netflix next month.  This news was announced today with the first official trailer for the series, which is called The Cuphead Show. This new trailer comes seven months after our first sneak peek at the show and as that peek indicated, The Cuphead Show will be about the titular character and his brother, Mugman, traversing the Inkwell Isles.  Click here to watch embedded media Unlike the game, which tasks players with wiping some debt owed to the Devil, it seems that the show is less about a central story such as that and more about episode-to-episode adventures that may or may not be hijacked by some devilish deeds from the Devil. However, the trailer reveals quite a few of the locales visited in Cuphead as well as many of the bosses our heroes face in the game.  “Based on the award-winning video game that smashed onto the scene with a gorgeous retro animation style, The Cuphead Show is a character-driven comedy series following the unique misadventures of loveable, impulsive scamp Cuphead and his cautious but easily swayed brother Mugman,” a press release from Netflix reads. “As the two scour their surreal homeworld of the Inkwell Isles in search of fun and adventure, they always have each other’s back.”  As you might expect, the show retains the same retro style of animation as the game and it features the same 1920s-esque antics and comedy seen in it as well.  Click here to watch embedded media “The Cuphead Show combines nostalgic delights, side-splitting gags, and a healthy dose of the heebie jeebies – espeically when a ridiculously weird nemesis, The Devil himself, arrives on the scene to toy with our heroes.”  Netflix Animation is producing the 12-episode series, and each episode will run for 12 minutes. Cuphead creators Chad and Jared Moldenhaur from Studio MDHR are executive producers. The voice cast includes Tru Valentino (Psychonauts 2) as Cuphead, Frank Todaro (Jojo's Bizarre Adventure) as Mugman, Joe Hanna (Dishonored 2) as Elder Kettle, Luke Millington-Drake as the Devil, Grey Griffin (Batman: Arkham City) as Ms. Chalice, and Wayne Brady (Who's Line Is It Anyway?) as King Dice.  The Cuphead Show was announced back in 2019, and you can read about that original announcement here. Check out our thoughts on the video game that the show is based on in Game Informer’s Cuphead review after that and then read about how Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course, which features the same Ms. Chalice seen in The Cuphead Show, launches this June.

    Mozilla is shutting down Firefox Notes and Send

    Firefox Send
    this season

    Mozilla plans to state goodbye to two of its lesser-known products. The foremost is Firefox Send, an instrument the ongoing company introduced in 2017 to permit users to talk about encrypted files. Send was well-liked by the Firefox community generally, so it could be surprising to discover Mozilla plans to discontinue it. However, as these exact things go sometimes, a few bad apples ruined the knowledge for everybody else.

    Earlier in the summertime, Mozilla saw that some malicious users had began to use Send to handle phishing ship and attacks malware. In response, Mozilla took down the tool. At the right time, it said it could relaunch it in the future following the chance was had because of it to include better reporting capabilities. However the company has changed its mind.

    “In the intervening period, once we weighed the expense of our overall portfolio and strategic focus, we made a decision never to relaunch the ongoing service,” Mozilla said. Since Send is offline already, there is nothing you need to do to prepare because of its decommissioning.

    The other tool Mozilla is sunsetting is Firefox Notes. Like Send, Notes grew from the company’s defunct Test Pilot program. It had been initially a genuine method for Mozilla to test new methods to sync encrypted data. The experiment ran its course once, the business kept Notes around as an instrument you could utilize in Firefox and Firefox for Android.

    In early November, Mozilla says it’ll discontinue support for the Firefox Notes syncing and app service. For those who have the extension installed on your own pc already, you’ll get the opportunity to export all of your notes. However, november after, it will not be possible to set up the extension again.

    It’s never easy to understand an organization discontinue something, in the event that you depended on that app because of its utility particularly. In its defense, Mozilla says parting ways with Firefox Send and Notes allows it to spotlight products like its recently launched VPN service.
