What you need to know

- Only the first area will be included due to storage limitations.
- In the meantime, you can purchase it for $20 on the Microsoft Store.
Cuphead is a platformer and shooter rolled into one. The title features visuals that are similar to old-school cartoons, but the animation is much smoother. A few months ago, the team reported that Cuphead sold over three million units across Xbox One and PC. Since then, it has launched on Nintendo Switch, but there's another version in the works.
Revealed on Ryan McCAffrey's Tesla Podcast 'Ride the Lightning', (via IGN), the game is on its way to Tesla's Model 3, Model S, and Model X vehicles. These electric cars feature massive displays in the center and powerful hardware, so Cuphead could run on them. Technology entrepreneur Elon Musk said the following on Episode 200 of the show (36:48 mark).
Tesla also features a number of Atari games like Lunar Lander that you can play with a touchscreen and USB controller. Cuphead should be an interesting addition to the catalog.
Developer Studio MDHR and Tesla should launch the game this summer. However, keep in mind that this isn't the complete game. The Tesla version will only include the "Inkwell Isle One" level because the cars don't feature a lot of storage. Nevertheless, it's an interesting endeavor.
