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.

    PS5 Accessories Are Shipping Early

    While the PlayStation 5 itself is still set with a firm launch date of November 12, it looks like PS5 accessories are arriving sooner than expected! 

    “Valued customers” are receiving emails from Sony saying that PS5 accessories are shipping early, now arriving just before Halloween on October 30. In the below email, Sony mentions “If you’d like to keep your pre-order reservation, no additional action is required at this time. We will send you a reminder email in a few days to confirm your payment and shipping details so that we may charge your card prior to shipping the item to you.”

    The email also advises fans to double-check their card and shipping information, just in case there are any last minute corrections needing to be made. After all, you don’t want to pre-order a system and accessories only to have them arrive somewhere else by mistake! 

    An important thing to note is that in the order details, the above image says it’s for a “PS5 Digital.” Many immediately thought this to mean that the digital version of the console itself would be arriving early, but we’ve gotten confirmation from both Sony and a few others that received this email that that simply relates to the order in question. So no, no early console. Sorry, PS5 hopefuls. 

    As for the system itself, we’ve gotten our first at the stunning new PS5 UI and it looks slick. A massive change from the current generation, the latest reveal video, seen here, details what new features players can look forward to and all of the design differences. 

    PlayStation 5 officially arrives on November 12.

    Are you excited for what the future looks like for PlayStation, or are you itching to try out the Xbox side first? Sound off with your thoughts in the comment section below!
