We’re just a few weeks away from the Cuphead sequel, Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course, but that hasn’t stopped the developers from making one last revelation: an aggressive snowflake.
As part of Summer Game Fest, Maja Moldenhauer of Studio MDHR unveiled a gameplay trailer showing an unexpected boss battle: a giant, transforming snowflake that shoots eyeballs, icicles, and, er, buckets at you. I think if there’s one thing Cuphead never was, it’s predictable.
Check out the boss fight for yourself below:
The footage of the boss battle shouldn’t leave fans in any doubt, this sequel is just as tough as its predecessor. The new character Chalice has to weave between waves of incoming projectiles while also having sex between floating and revolving platforms. This is a ridiculous stack of challenges and this is exactly why I will never play these games. I like my games quiet, not straight from hell.
Wouldn’t it be a Cuphead boss either if it didn’t have one final reveal – that cruel boss? He’s just a wizard in a soft purple robe under that cold exterior.
If you’re a fan of being ripped to shreds by ruthless cartoon villains, then more power to you, too, you can start gearing up because you don’t have to wait long until you’re devastated again – Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course Comes Out on June 30th.
