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.

    Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition Trailer Reveals Release Date, New Visuals, & Features

    Rockstar Games officially announced Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition (after it had been leaked) with a teaser trailer that showed nothing of the actual game. The studio has now not only showed the updated titles in motion, but also revealed its release date and what new features it will have. Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition will come to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on November 11 for $59.99. The physical version will come on December 7 on all platforms except the PS5 and PC.

    The trailer shows radically improved visuals, but ones that will still look familiar to their PS2 originals, which is what Rockstar originally promised, more or less. The trailer even conveniently compares the old games against the remasters. The three titles will have higher resolution textures for nearly every aspect, a “completely rebuilt lighting system,” better weather and water effects, more detailed foliage, and better draw distances. The PC version will also have NVIDIA DLSS support and the PS5 and Xbox Series X iterations will have 4K support with up to 60 frames per second performance.

    The eShop lists the game at 25.4 GB on the Switch while the Xbox Store approximates that it will be 49 GB. The Switch version will also have Gyro aiming and touch screen support for camera zooming, pans, and its menus.

    Rockstar is also changing parts of the game, too. They’ll have controls similar to Grand Theft Auto V, better targeting controls, improved gunplay, more streamlined weapon and radio station wheels, mini-maps that let players set waypoints, and the ability to immediately a mission over upon failure, which should help alleviate frustration. There are also accomplishments in the PC version that will likely just be the same as the achievements and trophies seen on the Xbox and PlayStation.

    And while it will be $59.99 for most players, some will be able to play a Grand Theft Auto remaster or two for no extra cost. Grand Theft Auto III will be on PlayStation Now on December 7 while San Andreas launch on Game Pass on November 11. Vice City is the only one not on a subscription service.
