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.

    Tunche: Behold the Secrets of the Amazon Jungle

    Hello, travelers! I’d like to welcome you to the Amazon jungle, full of secrets, magic, danger and adventure. The world of Tunche is a beautiful hand-drawn place brimming with exotic plants and animal life. It is also full of legends.

    Find the Rumored Creature, and Ask for Anything You Desire

    Sitting by a campfire, children often tell each other stories about beings that roam the Amazon at night, and the most powerful of them all is Tunche, a magical beast capable of granting any wish. Taking on the role of one of five characters, you will traverse the Amazon in search of this beast, and the boon that it grants and unravel the mystery behind its disappearance along the way.

    Five Characters, Five Stories, Five Unique Playstyles

    You (and up to three of your friends) will decide on who to take on the dangerous journey. Rumi – the sorceress entrusted with protecting the Amazon jungle, Qaru – a winged boy, agile and strong yet full of sorrow. Pancho – a musician at heart, whose ukulele skills might be even more powerful than his fists. Nayra – a girl with unbending willpower, who can control snakes and is amazing with a spear and finally a guest character, Hat Kid from A Hat in Time, a human-like alien, attempting to find a Time Piece hidden somewhere in the jungle.

    The Friends We Meet Along the Way…

    Travelling through four different worlds in search for answers, as well as unraveling deeply personal stories of Rumi and her friends, might’ve been impossible if not for the allies you make along the way. People of the Jungle will follow you back to camp and help you in many ways. Some will sell you life-saving herbs and potions, others give their blessing in form of long-lasting buffs, and some will teach you new skills, combos and abilities. Planning and wisely spending resources is essential to the journey. 

    The Jungle Is Like a Puzzle

    Each time you attempt to conquer the jungle, it will feel different. Locations change, new and unexpected events occur, and the path is paved with choices. Should you challenge power magical creatures for additional rewards, or stop at a healing shrine? Maybe try and save a friendly character?

    Behind Each New Turn an Exciting Adventure Awaits.

    The most powerful beings that live in the rainforests are the biggest obstacle you will encounter. Defeating them is a great feat. Good luck travelers, and may the Amazon jungle be on your side on your journey!
