Cuphead is an indie title that began development in 2010 by developers Studio MDHR. It is slated to be released in 2016 for Xbox One and Windows PC. A new 11 minute gameplay video has been released by Eurogamer giving us a sample of what to expect from the gameplay. The video features three levels, three bosses, an in-game item shop, and an over world reminiscent of classic NES games such as Super Mario Bros 3.
What captivates me the most is the art style of this game. It is an homage to old cartoons such as Steamboat Willy. The hand drawn art looks beautiful. The gameplay looks a lot to me like Contra, which is a game I grew up playing on my NES.
