Cuphead: Don't Deal With The Devil [PC, XBO]

Post by outdated_gamer » Sun Jun 14, 2015 2:01 pm

Anyone seen this 2D platformer? It looks pretty amazing, like the 20s/30s Western animation really came to life. Here some footage and pics:

The game actually looks like that during gameplay and the animation is top notch too. It will be a "run and gun" sidescroller not unlike games like Gunstar Heroes. It's scheduled for a 2015 release and we'll probably get more info about it on this year's E3. It seems the Xbox One is trying to make a name for itself with unique and quality 2D platformers (Ori And The Blind Forest springs to mind too). :wink:

Looks amazing. I just want a release date so I know when I can purchase it!

Been looking forward to this for a few years now, but unless it somehow finds its way to the 360, I won't be able to play it :(

Its coming to Steam as well. Can't see that many games coming to last gen consoles moving forward now, it'll probably be current gen only from here on out.

That's a shame... It took me until 2010 to join the last generation, and my laptop can just about run Portal - doubt I'll be able to play Cuphead at any sort of decent speed.

I love the look and the style of it, but it seems to have gone a bit quiet on the dev front?

New trailer is out:

Visually, the game looks absolutely amazing and puts to shame even such efforts as Rayman Legends, imo. If the gameplay is half as good as the presentation and if the game will be long and hard enough, we might be looking at a true future classic here.

And new trailer is out:

Game is shaping out nicely. This will be a visual delight if nothing else, but I do think they will put a lot of focus on the gameplay side of things too. Steam version is confirmed.

The wait is almost over... looking forward to dusting off the Xbox to play this and Ori 2.

Cup head and Ori 2 looked amazing, other than these two games what a shocking show Microsoft have had, even a new console reveal didn't save them.
With a price tag of $499 for the new Xbox One X can we expect a £449 -£499 price tag over here, if so it's dead before it's released' absolutely nothing on show today to warrant buying one.

Confirmed at £450 I believe. Way too high for my blood since they didn't show any good reasons why I need to own one. I'll just spend that cash on fixing up my PC instead.

Both games will be available on Xbox one (unless you were waiting for a Scorpio for jumping in).

Game is up for pre-order on Steam, GOG and Xbox Store.

This might be the first game ever I will pre-order (on the DRM-free GoG of course), although I might hold off a bit too since I'm not sure how long the game is or how much re-play value will it have. Either way, the game looks as good as ever and refreshing in comparison to other major titles out there today.

Pretty close to release now... Watching some new footage of stages/bosses and it definitely looks like one of the more creative games in terms of boss design. Absolutely can't wait to sink my teeth into it, it looks incredible as well which helps. I just pray that they don't announce an unforeseen delay in the eleventh hour.
