CUPHEAD Launch Trailer and Fan Art Highlight the Game’s Elegant Look

It’s time to run and gun because Cuphead has arrived. The Studio MDHR title available through Steam and Xbox One leans into a clean, retro look reminiscent of old school Disney cartoons. The platform-style game puts the player in the shoes of Cuphead, who lost a bet with the devil (doh!) and plays through the game trying to repay that bet. Boss fights galore and all kinds of fascinating graphics keep the game rolling. You can get a taste of the aesthetic in the launch trailer, which came our way via Entertainment Weekly.

Unsurprisingly, hours of Cuphead game play has inspired artists around the web to put their own spin on the characters and creatures. It doesn’t matter that the game only launched a day ago on September 29. You can’t stop the muse, and I can’t stop myself from sharing Cuphead fan art. Let’s start with this piece by Brandon Zalar.
