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.

    Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 Update Brings Lightning And Tornadoes To The Battle Royale

    Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 Tornadoes Lightning Flare Gun

    Epic Games’ latest update for Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 is live, and it brings with it tornadoes and lightning for players to avoid (or use to their advantage) in the battle royale. 

    Not at all unlike the stormy weather featured in EA Dice’s latest release, Battlefield 2042, players can use these new tornadoes to traverse the battle royale map quickly by simply hopping in. You’ll know a tornado is on the way, too, as it’ll swirl in the sky first before touching down.

    “If you see a tornado start to form, that’s no signal to flee,” a press release about the v19.01 update reads. “Instead, run into it as a swirling escape strategy. You’ll spin round and round ‘til you choose to glide to safety – or if you stay spinning long enough – ‘til the twister spits you out. Don’t worry: you won’t take fall damage if you get hurled.” 

    Tornadoes aren’t all that’s new in Fortnite, though – lightning has joined the fray. 

    “If you see a dark cloud start to form, that’s not necessarily a signal to flee either,” Epic Games says in a press release. “Sure, the lightning from it deals a small amount of damage (and sets the surrounding area on fire), but the power of its shock gives players a temporary speed boost.”

    If you’re looking to increase your chance of getting struck by lightning, jump into a body of water beneath a cloud or reach the highest point of land beneath a storm. Lightning doesn’t strike twice, either – once you’ve been struck once, there will be a cool down before you can be struck again. 

    The Flare Gun returns to Fortnite from the Vault with this update as well. 

    “Don’t leave it up to just lightning to start fires,” Epic Games says. “With this hotfix, the Flare Gun has been unvaulted. So now in addition to Firefly Jars, you can spark Flare Guns to make use of spreading flames. Find Flare Guns in chests, on the ground, and from Supply Drops.” 

    Finally, Epic Games says Fortnite is now in “Tornado Week.” During this event, which runs until January 17, there’s a higher percent chance you’ll encounter tornadoes on the island for their debut in the game. 

    If you haven’t checked out Fortnite as of late, now’s a great time to do so as Spider-Man, web-slinging, and more have joined the fight with Chapter 3. Plus, if you’re a Cobra Kai fan, you can now put any of Fortnite’s original characters in either Cobra Kai, Eagle Fang, or Miyagi-Do outfits.
