Cuphead is coming to Netflix — and it’d higher be darkish as pitch


Cuphead, cartoonish indie platformer darling, is getting its personal Netflix present, in accordance with its builders at Studio MDHR. The present, which can be made by Netflix Animation, can be known as The Cuphead Present! As a fan of the sport, I can solely hope the trademark darkish edge makes it into the present — as a result of anybody who’s performed the sport will understand it’s not for probably the most delicate of souls.

Not a lot is understood in regards to the present’s content material to this point. Based on The Hollywood Reporter, the present can be made with the assistance of King Options Syndicate, the identical firm that owns the rights to Betty Boop, Felix the Cat, and a number of other different staples of the period Cuphead lovingly imitates. It’s an ideal candidate, visually talking: the sport is intentionally patterned after the 1930s-era Fleischer cartoons, that means it’s designed to not look extra like a cartoon than your typical platformer within the first place.

I do form of marvel how Cuphead‘s darkness will translate nicely to the display screen. The sport‘s story is, to not put too tremendous a degree on it, majorly fucked up. The 2 ceramic younger’uns, Cuphead and Mugman, make a take care of the satan to save lots of their very own pores and skin after dropping a rigged on line casino recreation — after which they proceed to gather souls from different debters by beating the tar out of them in fights.

That’s to say, the world of Inkwell Isle will not be a cheerful one, regardless of its vibrant shade. The actual fact the sport is frustratingly troublesome form of builds on that “not for the kiddies” vibe — so it form of worries me that its otherwise-blank page on Netflix is listed underneath the “Youngsters TV” style.

If nothing else, this seems to be a part of streaming companies’ concerted effort to attraction to avid gamers, although the place this impulse got here from I’m not exactly positive. Aside from The Cuphead Present!, Netflix is making its new Witcher sequence, of which it’s to this point launched however a number of promotional photographs. Scuttlebutt additionally has it {that a} Halo sequence is in growth. Looks like they’re taking a really broad slice out of gaming normally to see what genres resonate with audiences. Whereas the selection of Cuphead as a topic is a little bit of an sudden one, I’ll respect it if Netflix makes a present with the sport’s trademark macabre humorousness.
