See one of Cuphead’s “run and gun” levels for the first time

Cuphead, Studio MDHR’s deranged side-scrolling shooter, was originally scheduled to be released for the PC and Xbox One last year. But instead, the developer decided to push its release back by nearly a year to make their homage to 1930s animation even grander.

When it was first announced, Cuphead was described as a “Boss Rush” shooter, a game where players would battle a series of increasingly tougher bosses before taking aim at the final boss. However, Studio MDHR’s extra work has added a large number of Contra-esque platforming levels to the game as well, and they’re finally ready to show one off in the E3 2016 trailer embedded above. As you might expect, the animation is beautiful, the soundtrack is jazzy, and the shooting action is intense.

Barring any other delays, Cuphead will be released for the PC and Xbox One sometime this year.
