In the latest stream of Summer Game Fest, Studio MDHR announced that Cuphead will be landing on the PlayStation Store today for the PS4. The announcement was coupled with a new Cuphead trailer created by Toronto-based Stop Motion Department. On the PlayStation Blog, Chad Moldenhauer Co-Director of Studio MDHR goes into integrate details of how Stop Motion Department approached the new animated trailer and went to such lengths as using “C Mount” lenses, alongside not using the assistance of computers for the movements of the puppets to truly capture the 1930’s era vibe and aesthetics. If you haven’t already, check out the trailer above for yourself.
On the Summer Game Fest stream, it was also confirmed that the upcoming Delicious Last Course DLC will also launch on the PS4 on the same day as other platforms. Even though dates for the DLC has not been confirmed yet. Last month, it was also confirmed that an animation series of Cuphead is on its way to Netflix. Over on the Netflix twitter page, we got a cheeky look at the designs we can expect for The Cuphead Show, that we’ll link below so you can have look.
Cuphead was initially an Xbox Exclusive back in 2017 when the game was first released. However, eventually made its way onto PC and Switch. Cuphead is well known for its charming 1930’s animation style designs but its fiend-ish difficulty level.
Cuphead lands on the PlayStation Store today at the price of £15.99/$19.99. Will you be grabbing a double espresso and purchasing Cuphead today on the PlayStation Store? Let us know!
