Netflix’s The Cuphead Show has made one of its first new appearances since being revealed one year ago.
Did you remember that an animated TV show based on the Cuphead video game was currently being created over at Netflix? Well, I sure as heck didn’t until Netflix opted to unveil some more footage and information on the series today.
Shared on Netflix’s social channels this morning, the streaming giant offered a brief new look at The Cuphead Show. Created using the same throwback animation style that the game is known for, The Cuphead Show looks to follow the franchise’s titular character and his brother, Mugman, as they get into all kinds of trouble.
In addition to showing some new concept art and snippets from the show itself, Netflix also unveiled some of the voices behind the characters in this new video, too. Tru Valentino will serve as the voice of Cuphead himself while Frank Todaro will play Mugman. As for other characters that will appear in The Cuphead Show, we also got some brief looks at King Dice, Elder Kettle, and the Devil as well.

All in all, what Netflix has shown of the series so far looks quite promising. The art style seems to be just as captivating and charming as what was seen in the video game when it launched a few years back. If The Cuphead Show ends up reaching the same level of quality as Netflix’s other video game-based projects like The Witcher and Castlevania, then it seems like this show could be worth getting quite excited about.
The Cuphead Show still doesn’t have a release date, but Netflix claims that it’s “coming soon.” Hopefully, this means we’ll be able to binge the entire series sooner rather than later.
