Play as Cuphead or Mugman (in single player or local co-op) as you traverse odd worlds, acquire new weapons, learn powerful super moves, and discover hidden secrets while you try to pay your debt back to the devil!

Happy Tuesday, everybody! Are you ready for Netflix and King Features Syndicate to serve up some fun? The game features hand-drawn animations inspired by cartoons from the 1930s, with the Netflix series presumably using similar animation techniques.

The news was announced via a tweet from game developer Studio MDHR, as well as an article from The Hollywood Reporter. Those included works like Betty Boop and Popeye.

Cuphead is coming to Netflix! Cosmo Segurson (Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling) and C.J. Kettler (Carmen Sandiego) are also executive producing. Speaking with IGN, Cuphead co-creator Chad Moldenhauer opened up about passing the torch, stating "We are not going to be animating this [ourselves] because it would never be finished". The show, which will be made by Netflix Animation, will be called The Cuphead Show! The game centers around Cuphead and his brother Mugman as they venture to repay their debt to the devil. The streaming service is producing an animated series based on the game. As a fan of the game, I can only hope the trademark dark edge makes it into the show - because anyone who's played the game will know it's not for the most sensitive of souls.

Cuphead, with its lovely hand-drawn visuals, is one of the few games out there that lends perfectly to an animated adaptation.
