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.

    Sony Clarifies Marvel's Spider-Man PS5 Upgrade Confusion

    With many confirmations about select titles getting free next gen upgrades recently, many were wondering if Marvel’s Spider-Man would also obtain the same treatment. Sony has clarified a few of the confusion regarding next gen upgrades.

    At this right time, you can find no plans free of charge PS5 upgrades for PS4 Marvel’s Spider-Man owners to get the Remastered version. Marvel’s Spider-Man is backwards compatible and that the PS4 launch version (not the upgraded version) will undoubtedly be playable on PS5.

    In a recently available statement supplied by Sony to Kotaku, the business clarified that the Remastered edition is roofed in the Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition. PS4 Miles Morales purchases do get yourself a free PS5 upgrade, but it doesn’t apply to the bottom game.

    Here may be the full statement:

    Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered can be an enhanced version of Marvel’s Spider-Man, and is roofed within Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition for the PlayStation 5. Furthermore, players who purchase Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales on PlayStation 4 can upgrade at no additional expense to the PS5 version of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales and will benefit from a paid-upgrade to download Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered.

    There are no plans currently to provide Marvel’s-Spider-Man: Remastered as a standalone. Players with a copy of Marvel’s Spider-Man for PS4 can buy Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition to see Marvel’s Spider-Man: Remastered on PS5. Marvel’s Spider-Man for PS4 will be backwards compatible on PS5.

    The Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition retails for $70 and is really a must-buy option for all those attempting to play as Peter Parker once again with the Remastered version on the PlayStation 5. For all those just thinking about Miles’ story, the standalone continuation of the Spidery story with Morales because the protagonist will upgrade from the PS4 version to the PS5 version free.

    Basically, you should buy Miles Morales in order to play the remastered version of the overall game.
