Microsoft announces September 29 release date for Cuphead

The 2017 E3 Expo has yet to officially begin, but as far as I’m concerned, the biggest announcement happened today during Microsoft’s Press Conference. No, I’m not talking about the Xbox One X, but Studio MDHR’s side-scrolling shooter, Cuphead.

As part of their presentation, the consolemaker announced that Cuphead will be released for the PC and Xbox One on September 29. They also unveiled a short new trailer for the game, which was inspired by cartoons from the 1930s:

Xbox One console exclusive also coming to Windows 10. Cuphead is a classic run and gun action game heavily focused on boss battles. Inspired by cartoons of the 1930s, the visuals and audio are painstakingly created with the same techniques of the era, i.e. traditional hand drawn cel animation, watercolor backgrounds, and original jazz recordings.

Yup, that is all I need out of my Xbox One this year. Th-Th-The, Th-Th-The, Th-Th… That’s all, folks!
