It’s been about a year since The Cuphead Show! was announced. The animated series, based on the hit game that’s currently available on Switch, will be debuting on Netflix in the future.

Tying in with the upcoming Annecy Animation Festival in June, a new promo image has been released that may give us a better idea about what sort of style The Cuphead Show! will be featuring. We won’t be seeing an identical recreation of the game due to the amount of work and time that would be required, but it’s going for a similar look.

As we know, The Art of Cuphead is set to release towards the start of 2020. However, an Amazon listing has now revealed that a limited edition will be offered alongside the standard version.

Here’s what fans can expect from the book:

Cuphead is celebrating its second anniversary today. As part of that, the game is seeing a 20 percent discount during the next week.

Studio MDHR has also announced that Cuhead has surpassed five million copies sold. The title debuted on Switch earlier this year and has been a strong seller on the platform.

Studio MDHR will be attending San Diego Comic-Con 2019 this week with a panel dedicated to Cuphead. Chad and Jared Moldenhauer, the game’s creators, will “discuss the inspiration and cultural phenomenon around the unique quadruple platinum video game and what’s next for the hit franchise.” King Features president C. J. Kettler will moderate the chat.

The Cuphead panel will be held on July 20. Attendees can stop by Room 5AB for the hour-long discussion starting at 4:30 PM PT.

It’s been announced that the critically acclaimed game Cuphead is getting a brand new animated show. Netflix will be producing the series.

Hollywood Reporter states that the show “will expand upon the characters and world of the game, which centers on titular hero Cuphead and his brother Mugman who make a deal with the devil in a high-stakes gambling match.”

Aside from Netflix itself, King Features Syndicate is also involved. Chad and Jared Moldenhauer from Studio MDHR are executive producers. C.J. Kettler (Carmen Sandiego) will serve as an executive producer for King Features. Netflix Animation is handling its creation and is executive produced by Dave Wasson (Mickey Mouse Shorts). Cosmo Segurson (Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling) will also be a co-executive producer.

Studio MDHR provided an update on Cuphead’s Delicious Last Course expansion today. It was originally planned for release later this year, but has now been pushed back to 2020.

Co-director Chad Moldenhauer has since issued a statement about the delay. In addition to having a high-quality product, the move was also done to maintain the team’s health – which is especially important due to how much talk there has been regarding development crunch as of late.

The full statement reads:

As fans know, Cuphead has some new DLC on the way. The Delicious Last Course was previously announced, but has now been hit with a delay. The DLC will release sometime in 2020 after it was previously on track for sometime this year.

Here’s a new teaser trailer for The Delicious Last Course:

Cuphead launched on Switch back in April. In honor of the game’s release, Japanese magazine Famitsu spoke with Chad and Jared Moldenhauer from Studio MDHR.

One of the more interesting comments came about when Famitsu asked about the possibility of a sequel. Chad responded by noting that the team has an idea “in the extremely early stages” that they’re “building up the proof of concept and getting things ready.” Given the studio’s expertise, he said that “you can at least expect our next game to be in that same style.”
