Cuphead is a new game from Studio MDHR, unveiled for the Xbox One’s [email protected] suite of titles, and will feature tons of bosses. The game recreates the look and feel of ancient times 1930’s-era cartoons, even going so far, say the devs, as to include traditional cel animation hand drawn and inked.

Players can play either single player or co-operative against a bevy of retro-style foes. And your second player is… Mugman.
