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.

    Cyberpunk 2077 & Witcher III Current-Gen Versions Delayed into 2022

    Even though a roadmap and a recent rating implied otherwise, the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S versions of Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher III: Wild Hunt are not coming out until 2022. These updated versions of Cyberpunk 2077 are now slated for Q1 2022 while the new ports of The Witcher III are scheduled for Q2 2022. No more specific dates were given.

    Both were initially supposed to come out in 2021 until CD Projekt Red announced the delay through an investor call before posting it on Twitter. The team had previously shared a roadmap in January that listed the current-gen versions of Cyberpunk for 2021. Judging by the map, it looked as though it was scheduled to be released in the last few months of the year.

    The Witcher III‘s current-gen upgrades were supposed to come out in the second half of 2021. However, CD Projekt Red said in September that it couldn’t make guarantees about either version of the game, which showed the developer was not confident it could hit its release windows.

    Many have been waiting for these free upgrades, especially for Cyberpunk 2077. The game infamously launched in a sad state in December 2020 and was even pulled from the PlayStation Store soon after. It eventually came back six months later, but even Sony recommended playing the game on a PS5 through backwards compatibility or on a PS4 Pro. Even though all of the console versions were borderline unplayable, the PC version also had its share of bugs and glitches.

    CD Projekt Red has spent the last 10 months patching the game and while it is in a better state, the native current-gen versions will likely be able to render a more detailed version of the world with collapsing in on themselves. The Witcher III‘s upgrade isn’t as dire since it came out in 2015 and wasn’t nearly as hobbled, but its new version will have visual improvements, better loading times, and items from the Netflix show.
