Cuphead, the long awaited indie game beautifully animated in the vein of classic cartoons, will finally get released September 29 on Xbox One and PC.

Originally revealed at E3 2014, Studio MDHR’s boss-centric platformer focuses on tough combat rendered in the style of old animation studios like Disney, Van Beuren, and Fleischer. The game was planned for 2016, but slipped to this year due to the burgeoning size of the game.


In the game you play as either Cuphead or Mugman, with both single player and local-cop available, exploring Cuphead’s world in search of weapons, special abilities, and hidden unlockables in order to defeat a crazy number of brutal bosses.

MDHR also revealed during the conference that the game will be part of Microsoft’s Play Anywhere program, meaning it can be bought on either Windows 10 or Xbox One and be played across both platforms.
