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. Are you excited for The Cuphead Show? Let us know in the comments below!

    Complete holiday quests, battle with unvaulted items, and more in Fortnite’s 2021 Winterfest

    Welcome Back to the Winterfest Lodge

    Sgt. Winter and your presents will be waiting for you at the Winterfest Lodge. To enter the Lodge, head over to the snowflake tab in the Lobby. If you miss any days of opening Presents, you can always come back and open them before Winterfest ends.

    We don’t wanna spoil all the gifts you’ll be receiving, but we’ll at least reveal the outfits. One is Krisabelle, a festive take of the community-inspired Isabelle, and the other is Polar Peely, one cool banana (literally).

    Ice Cold Armory

    Cool cosmetics aren’t the only gifts Sgt. Winter is bringing to the Island. He’s opened an armory full of familiar icy items. Give your opponents (or yourself) ice block feet with Chiller Grenades. Launch explosive snowballs with Snowball Launchers. Disguise yourself with the Sneaky Snowman. And up your loot game with the Holiday Presents throwables.

    In the Item Shop: Spider-Man and MJ from Spider-Man: No Way Home (Plus More Outfits)

    There’s classic Spider-Man of the Chapter 3 Season 1 Battle Pass, and soon No Way Home Spider-Man and MJ will be coming to the Item Shop for Winterfest. (Just in time for the movie’s release!) The Spider-Man (No Way Home) and MJ (No Way Home) outfits will be in the Item Shop starting December 16 at 4 PM PT. Put on and take off No Way Home Spider-Man’s mask with his built-in Emote!

    More new outfits will be rotating into the Shop throughout Winterfest, including those inspired by June’s Concept Royale winners @lbdart_ and @AltaCalls. This Concept Royale was our callout for two exceptional, wintry concepts to be transformed into outfits. Returning winter outfits will be rotating into the Shop during Winterfest as well.

    Sgt. Winter and his trusty Red Nosed Ranger chauffeurs will be roaming around the Island, spreading the holiday joy by throwing out Holiday Presents. Don’t do something to get you on the Sergeant’s naughty list, though, or else he and the Rangers will go from joyful to hostile quick.

    So stay nice, unwrap your presents in the Lodge, and have a happy Winterfest.
