Netflix showed a short teaser of the upcoming show based on the game cup during the Geeked Week event on Friday, and just as you’d expect, the game’s old-school animation style seems to translate perfectly into an animated series. Netflix has also announced that Wayne Brady will be casting the dastardly King Dice.
You can watch the clip, featuring Brady’s King Dice, here:
Studio MDHR, developer of the cup game, first announced that announced The Cuphead Show was in the making almost two years ago. “Witness the wondrous Inkwell Isles like you’ve never seen them before in an original series inspired by classic 1930s animation styles,” Studio MDHR said in a tweet at the time:.
The animation in this teaser looks fantastic and I think Brady will fit perfectly in the role of King Dice. We still don’t know when the show will come out, but after this clip and the reveal of Brady’s casting, I’m even more excited than before.
