Cuphead brings some vintage sexiness in these new Xbox One screenshots
Cuphead is finally nearing its launch date, slated for September 29, 2017.
Cuphead will hit both Xbox One and Windows 10 as an Xbox Play Anywhere title for $19.99. The game has expanded far beyond its original roots as a couch co-op boss-rush shooter, adding a range of platforming levels into the mix as well.
The most eye-catching thing about Cuphead are its visuals, which represent layers of hand-drawn, hand-animated pieces inspired by classic 1930s cartoons, with an edge of twisted creepiness.
To showcase that, here's a bunch of fresh screenshots from Cuphead for your perusal!

For what I've seen and read about this game, I have the impression that what it has going for itself in graphics, it lacks in gameplay. I hope I'm wrong and it's more than just a really pretty game with an unique presentation.
I'm worried that the game might turn into a hype box filled with disappointment. So far, it looks like Contra with awesome graphics which, in my books, it's an automatic 7/10. Lets see if they have responsive controls, exciting mechanics and most importantly: a fun game to play.
