We never thought we’d see the previously Microsoft-exclusive Cuphead on a Nintendo platform, but soon there might well be two of them. (Well, sort of two of them).
Enchanted Portals is a new co-op platformer/shooter that will look very familiar to fans of StudioMDHR’s famous release. The game is being developed by Xixo Games Studio, a small, two-person team who are fans of Cuphead, and will soon be plonked on Kickstarter in a bid to raise funds and get it on Switch.
If you’ve already given the trailer above a spin, feel free to have a read through this description of what to expect:
Bob and Penny are two rookie magicians stuck between dimensions who will have to face numerous dangers in order to retrieve the pages of the Magic Book and be able to return home safely.
The players must join forces and use a wide arsenal of stylish moves and magic spells to fight their way through a series of battles against an ensemble of wacky yet powerful bosses.
Enchanted Portals has a visual style very similar to that of classic animated cartoons of the 1930s and popularized by Cuphead, with fluid, expressive frame-by-frame animation and a thrilling dynamic soundtrack that morphs and adapts to the action on screen.
Enchanted Portals’ Kickstarter campaign will be going live on 24th October; make sure to keep an eye on the game’s social media pages to jump on that when it goes live.
As for the actual Cuphead, a reminder that the game’s ‘The Delicious Last Course’ DLC is headed our way next year.
