Surprise!! The all-cartoon Wondergame Cuphead is coming to PlayStation 4. And you want have to wait to get your hands on it, as it’s available starting today! Battle screen-filling bosses in single player or local co-op, and take on The Devil in this run and gun action title inspired by cartoons of the 1930s.
Cuphead features one or two players taking control of animated characters Cuphead and his brother Mugman to fight through several levels that culminate in boss fights, in order to repay their debt to the devil. The game was praised for its art style and noted for its challenging difficulty. It was both a critical and commercial success, winning several awards and selling over six million copies within three years. An animated series based on the game is in production by Netflix.
Cuphead‘s gameplay is centered around continual boss fights, interspersed with run-and-gun levels. Each of these boss fights and run-and-gun levels is housed in three different worlds, with the final one being against the Devil himself. The game also includes role-playing elements and a branching level sequence.
