BEACON TRANSCRIPT – Most of us surely remember when the 2D side-scrolling game Cuphead was announced back in 2014. Studio MDHR, in collaboration with Microsoft, will finally release the game three years after the announcement. The game will come on September 29th, for both PC and Xbox One.
During Microsoft’s E3 press conference, Studio MDHR revealed how, after so many years of waiting, Cuphead will finally see the light of day. Many players have wondered if the game will ever be released in something more than a demo form presented during trade shows, but it seems that this autumn is the lucky season for Cuphead.
Hand-drawn art for Cuphead
In fact, the game is coming more quickly than expected. Cuphead will present a 1930s style, and also makes use of old school methods of production. More precisely, the game is centered on hand-drawn art. It will feature a vintage atmosphere and look like a playable cartoon.
Therefore, it is understandable that it took so long to be produced. In fact, Studio MDHR has only two members, brothers Chad and Jared Moldenhauer, so they had quite a tough job to fulfill. This explains why some people were surprised that the game will be ready until September 2017. Hopefully, the game will reach the expectations of the critics, but we will definitely not forget it has been created by only two people.
The game’s soundtrack gets released on vinyl
And this is not all. Apart from the release of the game, fans can also enjoy its music separately. Iam8bit gathered the Cuphead sountrack in a four-LP vinyl version, together with a suitable album art. The entire pack looks vintage and suits the ‘30s atmosphere.
Unfortunately, some might find it a little expensive, as it will be available for $100. However, you might end up loving the game, and the physical soundtrack would be the perfect present to buy for yourself.
