Netflix has released an official trailer for The Cuphead Show, an episodic series based on Studio MDHR’s retro-style animated video game today 18th January 2022.
An animation created by Chad and Jared Moldenhauer — the show is characterized by the streamer as a “character-driven comedy series following the unique misadventures of lovable, impulsive scamp Cuphead and his cautious but easily swayed brother Mugman.”
The Cuphead Show is going to be 12 episodes in the series, which launches on Feb. 18. Leading the voice cast is Tru Valentino as Cuphead and Frank Todaro as Mugman, with Joe Hanna, Luke Millington-Drake, Grey Griffin, and Wayne Brady.
During its novel entry in 2017, the difficult run-and-gun action video game — with visuals and humor partly inspired by classic 1930s cartoons — was reviewed favorably and went on to win best debut indie game and best independent video game at the Game Awards that year.
It also gained some recognition as well as won D.I.C.E. Awards, SXSW Gaming Awards, and BAFTAs, among others.
