Ah, I remember when all we knew about Cuphead was from 4 or 5 seconds of gameplay in an [email protected] sizzle reel during E3 2014. Since then, the game has gone on to rave reviews and now appears to be wanting to dominate all mediums. We have already seen the soundtrack release as both vinyl and as sheet music. There’s a Netflix show on the way as well as a comic. Well, if you still want more Cuphead in your life then you may be interested in a novel set on the Inkwell Isles. Cuphead in Carnival Chaos: A Cuphead Novel is written by Ron Bates and will see Cuphead and Mugman going on an adventure as they search for a birthday present for Elder Kettle. It’s up for preorder now and will release on 3rd March 2020. You can check out the cover and official description below –
Fans of the award-winning and visually stunning video game can see Cuphead, Mugman, and friends like never before in this original, illustrated middle-grade novel. Join them on their adventure as they make merry mischief in the vibrant and topsy-turvy world of the Inkwell Isles!
