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.

    Watch the FIA Certified Gran Turismo Championships World Finals this weekend

    The 2021 iteration of the FIA Certified Gran Turismo Championships reaches its climax next weekend (December 3-5) with the World Finals set to be broadcast live from PlayStation and Gran Turismo YouTube and Facebook pages. It’s a special event, as this marks the last occasion the series, started in 2018 in partnership with the FIA, will take place on GT Sport ahead of the launch of Gran Turismo 7 on March 4, 2022.

    The level of competition and the standard of driving has continued to impress audiences and PDI since the inaugural World Tour event that took place in May 2018 at the Nürburgring. This year we have not been able to host physical events, but the intensity of the on-track battles and the skill of the drivers have been fantastic to watch during all of the World Series broadcasts. Competitors compete from home all over the world, and we bring them together online via a studio-based production that is broadcast in seven different languages.


    Watch the FIA Certified Gran Turismo Championships World Finals this weekend

    So, let’s get to the World Finals….

    In total, 58 competitors from 23 different countries will take to the track over the course of the three days.

    The World Finals action begins with the single-make Toyota Gazoo Racing GT Cup this Friday, December 3.

    • In 2020, this was the moment that Takuma Miyazono signalled his intent. His victory in the Toyota race was followed by the Japanese driver claiming both the Manufacturer Series and Nations Cup titles.

    On Saturday, December 4, the scene is set for a tense finale to the Manufacturer Series.

    • Team Mazda and Team Toyota enter the three-race World Final level on points. Miyazono’s Team Subaru are four-points adrift, and a podium for Team Porsche in the last round has also put them within reach. With 12 points on offer for the first two races and a double-points final, it is all to play for the leading three-driver teams.

    We then have a special treat in store during the stream on Sunday, December 5. We will host the Nations Cup finals and also have a special unveiling from Porsche for its Vision GT.

    • That will not detract from the on-track action, as Italy’s Valerio Gallo, runner-up in 2020, will attempt to convert his incredible results so far this season into a Championship victory. His nearest rivals, Jose Serrano from Spain and Ryota Kokubun from Japan, will be doing all they can to end his run of form. Three regional semi-finals will be followed by the double-points Grand Final to decide the 2021 Nations Cup Champion.

    All the action can be followed on the Gran Turismo YouTube channel, Facebook page, and more information is available on www.Gran-Turismo.com

    • Friday, December 3 — 6am PT / 2pm GMT / 3PM CET / 11pm JST Toyota Gazoo Racing GT Cup
    • Saturday, December 4 — 6am PT / 2pm GMT / 3PM CET / 11pm JST FIA Certified Gran Turismo Championships Manufacturer Series
    • Sunday, December 5 — 6am PT / 2pm GMT / 3PM CET / 11pm JST FIA Certified Gran Turismo Championships Nations Cup (including the Porsche Vision GT reveal)
