Gorgeous New Cuphead Gameplay – Easy Mode Added for Casual Players

Studio MDHR has shared a new batch of gameplay for their upcoming classic cartoon-inspired action-platformer, Cuphead.

Featured above, the new gameplay shows off over ten minutes of the game. During the bit of gameplay, creator Chad Moldenhauer confirmed they’ve added an easy mode to the game. This was added to help players who wistfully got their souls crushed in its regular difficulty.

Cuphead is currently in development for PC and Xbox One, however a release date is still unconfirmed.

    I had completely forgotten about this game.

    That art still looks amazing.

    Gotta say, I’m extremely impressed by how they managed to fully emulate that mid-20th century art style. I saw a gif from this and I thought that it was supposed to be another current cartoon with deranged animations.

    I’ve been waiting quite awhile to play this game, and my excitement hasn’t waned at all. Good on them for adding an easy mode as well. More options is always good.

    I almost never buy indie games at full price, but I’ll be getting this on day one. It looks incredible.

    I heard the game was pretty challenging, so choosing the difficulty could be useful. The game looks amazing.

    This game looks great but it’s going to bomb hard. The dude-bro console just isn’t the place for a game like this.

    Looks good. I probably won’t be using the easy mode but it’s good that it’s there for those who need it.

    Amazing visuals, they’ve completely nailed the classic cartoon look.

    As someone who looks to the more artistic side of video games, I can definitely appreciate this.

    If it’s on Steam, yeah. Hopefully it’s not on that Windows 10 games crap because I’d really like to try it out.

    That’s good, it has a shot of seeing decent PC sales then.

    Cannot wait for this game. Been waiting on new material since the previous trailer last year. Visually innovative in what they’re doing and I’m looking forward to enjoying this on PC.

    “Mighty No 9 looks amazing”.
    – delusional backers/fans

    No, no it doesn’t. THIS looks amazing. Just admit that MN9 looks like garbage and deal with it.

    you mean early 20th century- It’s heavily influenced by the 20’s and 30’s era Fleischer and Disney cartoons, and not so much cartoons of the 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s.
