Studio MDHR previewed a few pages from The Art of Cuphead


This is going to be a treasure trove

It's tough to fully appreciate the craftsmanship in Cuphead's art design when you're battling bosses or running and gunning through foe-filled gauntlets. With that in mind, I'm looking forward to cozying up with The Art of Cuphead, a 264-page hardcover art book from Studio MDHR and Dark Horse.

We've known about the book for quite a while pre-orders opened all the way back in October 2019 but this week, there's a neat (albeit slight) update. The game's creators previewed several pages.

The first excerpt from The Art of Cuphead delves into the red-nosed hero's design philosophy.

And the second set covers Elder Kettle's house, complete with a nod to dear old Cranky Kong.

I'm excited to glean more behind-the-scenes details in the full book, which is due out March 17, 2020. If you're thinking of pre-ordering, Amazon has The Art of Cuphead listed for $27.99 – that's 30% off.
