Cuphead animated series coming to Netflix
Studio MDHR, a gaming studio, has announced that its hit game, Cuphead, will be getting an animated series on Netflix soon.
Cuphead received its reputation as one of the hardest modern Run-And-Gun platformer game that features 1930’s hand-drawn graphics which makes it unique and appealing. Netflix has collaborated with Studio MDHR, the company that developed and published the game, to release an animated series version of the game. They didn’t tell much about the plot; however, they will retain the 1930’s graphics that still revolves around the adventures of the protagonists, Cuphead and Mugman, in Inkwell Isles.
“For King Features, CJ Kettler will serve as the Executive Producer and creators Chad and Jared Moldenhauer will serve as Executive Producers for Studio MDHR. The series will be produced with Netflix Animation and is executive produced by Emmy and Annie Award-winning producer, Dave Wasson (Mickey Mouse) and Cosmo Segurson (Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling) serves as co-executive producer. Supervising Directors are Clay Morrow (Mickey Mouse) and Adam Paloian (SpongeBob SquarePants),” said Netflix
