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.

    The Latest Paladins Update Descends on the Realm

    Forged in the crucible of the Pyre’s flames as the embodiment of all that persists, Azaan the Eternal has existed to see countless reigns rise and fall. He keeps a watchful eye on the Realm — an ever present guardian whose sole mission is to keep the Realm free from the pervasive Abyssal influence. Not to be confused with a merciful and sympathetic overseer, Azaan is neither friend nor foe & his judgement will consume all who dare stand in his path.

    Recent events have placed the Realm in grave danger — every day becoming progressively infected by the Abyss and so the Eternal descends from on high to deliver a final warning to the Realm: eradicate the Abyss, or have it be consumed in his purging flames, at any expense necessary. Azaan the Eternal is the newest playable Paladins Champion!


    Azaan is the newest frontline Champion to join the Paladins roster. Bolstered by his passive that gains effectiveness during prolonged conflict, he slings hammers and summons flames to help create and maintain space for his team. Combined with his relatively low cooldowns and his ability to both build pressure and create space in a team fight, Azaan is an unyielding and formidable force to be reckoned with.

    Azaan also strikes hot with his other abilities, like Conviction, which allows him to unfurl his wings and swoop forward in a menacing attack that deals damage & stuns his enemies simultaneously. Azaan’s Sanctuary ability allows him to deploy a multi-segmented wall that both acts as a fortress for his team and deals damage when enemies collide against it. Finally, Azaan’s ultimate is Deliverance, which launches Azaan upwards and allows his hammer to be projected downwards dealing damage and displacing enemies. Shortly afterwards, it allows Azaan to teleport to a targeted location with a thunderous aftershock. When Azaan is on the field, there is nowhere to hide from the Hammer of the Pyre.


    Alongside Azaan, the new Dark Depths Event Pass releases with this update, which invites players to test their fates & descend into the dark ocean depths to find what is lurking beneath the ocean floor. Players can earn over 30 rewards, including the Sea Queen Saati and Marauder Tyra skins, as well as an alternate version of each. Plenty of sprays, avatars, and other cosmetics are also included!

    This update also includes a new Bounty Store exclusive Sigma Vivian skin, new limited time modes, and more! Smite your foes as Azaan or loot sunken treasure with the Dark Depths Event Pass in the Absolution update, available now in Paladins across all Xbox platforms!
