Xbox One indie game Cuphead looks like a 1930s Disney cartoon

New, 10 comments

An upcoming Xbox One game is going to take the console back in time a good 80 years. During its E3 presentation this morning, Microsoft showed a preview of Cuphead, an indie title that takes classic, Disney-style animation and turns it into a bizarre, gorgeous, and fast-paced arcade game. The game comes from StudioMDHR, which says that it wanted the title to have the look of a 1930s cartoon and the feel of a 16-bit platformer, which, as we're seeing, are two retro styles that appear to go incredibly well together. The visuals are all hand-drawn and inked, and the music is all original jazz. There's no release date yet, but it'll be exclusive to the Xbox One.
