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.

    What does it feel like to race the greatest cars in the world, on iconic streets and circuits, whilst dodging crashes and jaw-dropping moments around every corner? Well, in just a couple of months’ time, you’ll be able to find out…

    The entire team here at EA and Codemasters are so excited to announce today that Grid Legends comes to PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 on February 25, 2022 – and you can pre-order it right now from the PlayStation Store. Head there to get full details on everything coming your way, including bonus content for pre-ordering, and a Deluxe Edition option for more add-ons both on launch day and beyond.

    Oh, and make sure to Follow Grid Legends on PlayStation as well, to make sure you get all the latest news, gameplay and more content straight to your console, as we share more in the coming weeks.

    Race in the moment

    But hey, that’s for the future. We’re ready to give you more details right now on what makes Grid Legends a truly unique racing experience – starting with a simple question. When you play an exciting and enjoyable game, what do you remember most from it? Usually, it’s those unforgettable moments ­– those magical instances where the drama kicks in, the jeopardy amps up, and the element of surprise creates something you want to tell the world about.

    The beauty of Grid Legends is that it’s designed to deliver those amazing moments race after race, time after time. Of course, you will play your part in those moments – getting behind the wheel of well over 100 of the world’s greatest machines and battling for glory against 21 other drivers, on over 130 stunning routes. Intense pack racing is what the Grid franchise is all about, and Grid Legends takes that up yet another notch. That, though, is just the beginning of how this racer consistently delivers those epic moments.

    Thanks to hundreds of AI personalities, each with their nuances and differences, and a race choreographer working behind the scenes to conjure up some shocks, you’ll never know what’s coming around the corner in Grid Legends. Be ready to squint through the smoke of an engine blowout right in front of you. Keep an eye on the sky for a car launching into the air after shredding a tire. Look out for aggressive AI personalities intent on getting back ahead of your after you traded paint with them earlier. Everywhere you look in a Grid Legends race, there is unpredictability and drama unfolding. That means more surprises, and more of those unforgettable racing moments.

    Spectacular racing variety

    What also helps create those consistent instances of delight is the sheer variety of experiences on offer in Grid Legends. The Codemasters team have used their decades of racing game know-how to pack in more cars, locations, and ways to play than we’ve ever seen from this franchise.

    Prepare to hit the loud pedal in anything from hypercars to big rigs, single-seaters, drift legends, iconic prototypes, and stadium trucks. Enjoy a wide selection of event types, including the tense Eliminator, electrifying Boost races, and the return of stylish, sideways Drift runs. Hosting those vehicles and events is a massive slate of global locations, ranging from revered real-world raceways like Indianapolis, Suzuka, and Red Bull Ring, unique street circuits like the new London and Moscow routes, or even the new sprawling, high-speed Strada Alpina. Hundreds of curated events across multiple modes will be waiting for you, using eye-catching combinations all of this content – but we didn’t want to stop there.

    Using Grid Legends’ Race Creator, you can take all this variety and mould it into your very own unique and amazing events. Rip up the rulebook of racing and design something you couldn’t play anywhere else, controlling all the key aspects of an event. Want to put together a true motorsport challenge, putting our fastest GTs in a 50-lap race around Indy? Go for it. Fancy something a little more… out there? How about electric hypercars against big rigs, through the streets of London, in the snow? You got it! Just think of the chaotic and exhilarating moments you’ll be a part of via the Race Creator.

    We have plenty more to share soon on what’s coming in Grid Legends, including fresh info on the ground-breaking Driven to Glory virtual production story, the massively expanded Career, and new online features that make multiplayer races more thrilling than ever. However, all those features flourish thanks to that action-packed, edge-of-your-seat racing gameplay that you’ll feel every time you lay down rubber on the track. We can’t wait to see you creating and experiencing those racing moments, come February 25.
