Together with King Features Syndicate, Netflix intends to replicate the 1930s style of hand-drawn animation in a separate story from the game about Cuphead, his brother, Mugman, and their adventures through the Inkwell Isles. In the announcement from King Features, they say, “The character-driven comedy follows the unique misadventures of the impulsive Cuphead and his cautious but easily swayed brother Mugman. Through their many misadventures across their surreal home of the Inkwell Isles, they’ve always got one another’s backs.”
Having been only just announced, there is nothing close to a release date yet, so keep your eyes peeled for more news on this one.
