Studio MDHR’s renowned platform title Cuphead has finally made its PlayStation 4 debut, announcing its surprise launch on the Sony console with a new stop-motion trailer featuring Cuphead and the evil King Dice. Cuphead, which is inspired by hand-drawn art from classic 1930s cartoons, showcases its two most iconic characters in a new animation style in the footage above. The animation is inspired by the 1933 experimental short The Peanut Vendor according to Studio MDHR co-director Chad Moldenhauer.

In a recent PlayStation Blog post, Moldenhauer explained it tapped Toronto-based studio Stop Motion Department to produce the trailer, and that the team “went the extra mile to ensure that they were holding themselves to many of the same techniques as stop motion animators of the era.”

Alongside its new PlayStation release, Studio MDHR also announced an upcoming free update for the Xbox One version, adding a digital art gallery, behind-the-scenes commentary features, and a playable soundtrack to the title.

A new DLC called “The Delicious Last Course” was initially announced in 2018 but was subsequently delayed to 2020. Studio MHDR recently released a 50-second teaser featuring some new gameplay coming with the DLC, including a playable character Ms. Chalice that can double jump, new levels, bosses, and environments. The studio said it would have more to say about the DLC “in the coming months.”

Cuphead originally launched in 2017 on Xbox and PC and made its way to the Nintendo Switch last year. Recently, Netflix released a first look at the upcoming Cuphead Show!
