What you need to know
- Cuphead is an old-school run 'n' gun game.
- Netflix is developing an animated show based on the adventures of the main characters.
- You can also buy sheet music for Cuphead.
- You can purchase the game for $20 on the Microsoft Store.
Cuphead is an incredibly challenging shoot 'em up where you have to explore a cartoon world and defeat its terrifying bosses. It was announced many years ago at Microsoft's E3 media briefing, and has since made its way to Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch. There's even an animated series in the works at Netflix! Needless to say, the title has had a significant cultural impact over the past year or so.
According to a report by IGN, those who are part of bands, like high school groups, can purchase the sheet music for the acclaimed game. Just head over here and choose whatever you want. Prices vary depending on what you want.
For example, the $35 High School Jazz Band sheet music package contains scores and parts for four popular Cuphead tunes, scored with a jazz band performance in mind. The $50, Professional Charts bundle contains seven tunes as performed on the original Cuphead soundtrack.
If you aren't in a band, have no fear. You can always purchase the game through Amazon or the Microsoft Store for $20 and experience what the craze is all about. It's worth it just to listen to the stellar soundtrack in my opinion!
