Cuphead has blown us away. Studio MDHR’s game is not only one of the most challenging we’ve come across, but its eclectic 1940’s style art design is not to be missed, especially if you’ve got a 4K TV to see it in all its splendor. If you want to read more about the game, you can do so with our review.
However, a Reddit user by the name of RWBY2 decided to go the extra mile and wonder, “What would other video game characters look like in the world of Cuphead?” Well, up until this point, you could only imagine. But thanks to their awesome artwork, you can get a better idea.
The drawings include the likes of Lara Croft from Tomb Raider, along with Cayde-6 from Destiny 2, Marcus Fenix from Gears of War, Ori from Ori and the Blind Forest (and the upcoming sequel), and the Forza Motorsport 7 car, with a grin and eyes to match. The rest of the characters are plucked straight out of the Halo universe, including Master Chief (with a red nose!), a very beautiful Cortana, the Arbiter and Cutter.
We’ve included a gallery that showcases all this artwork for you to enjoy, and it really makes you wonder what would happen if Microsoft and other developers adapted to Studio MDHR’s amazing art style. Hell, what we wouldn’t give to see the Gunstar Heroes plucked into the 1940’s era.
You can discover the glory of Cuphead for yourself on Xbox One, Windows 10 and Steam.
