Released for the Xbox One and PC back in 2017, Cuphead quicly became a massive hit for both critics and gamers alike due to its challenging gameplay, as well as its incredible art style that’s inspired by 1930s cartoons from Walt Disney and Fleischer Studios (such as Betty Boop and Popeye the Sailor).
Given that the game is heavily inspired by classic cartoons, a Cuphead animated series is something that fans will definitely love to see. And that’s exactly what we’ll get soon as Netflix announced The Cuphead Show!, an animated series based on the hit run-and-gun game.
