Beyond D23, today is a slow news day, so here’s a little fluff featuring the vintage animation-inspired game Cuphead! Conan O’Brien recently filmed another episode of his segment Clueless Gamer for his late-night show on TBS, this one featuring Kate Upton as the two take on the upcoming Xbox One exclusive title, out on September 29th.
Honestly, I wish I could have been a fly on the wall to see Conan’s reaction to the game beyond the footage we have here. If you’re any kind of a fan of O’Brien’s work over the years, you know the more old-timey things are, the better. Don’t believe me, watch him get a kick out of Civil War reenactments or playing old-fashioned baseball. Adding Upton to the mix as Conan’s unrequited love interest for cringe-laughs is just icing on the cake.
Beyond that, this is a good chance to see some real-time Cuphead gameplay, and it looks awesome. It reminds me of the arcade cabinet game The Act, both in style and presentation, but done in a much more modern gaming setting. Take seven minutes at work sometime today and enjoy watching these two play a game you won’t see for two more months.
