Xixo Games Studio made quite a splash this week upon announcing what many are labeling a Cuphead clone, Enchanted Portals.
While information about the developer and game are currently sparse, Enchanted Portals‘ Kickstarter trailer has received the attention of tens of thousands since it was uploaded to YouTube on October 8.
Cuphead captivated the hearts of millions, selling 5 million total copies prior to its Nintendo Switch release earlier this year, and it is hard to doubt that Enchanted Portals draws huge inspiration from it—some going as far as to call it a “discount Cuphead“.
Enchanted Portals is an upcoming 2D platformer video game about a pair of rookie magicians who are trapped between dimensions and need to fight against funny bosses to recover the pages of the magic book so they can safely return home.
Other posts show off underwater battles, status effects, defensive moves, and some of the game’s music.
Thus far, the game’s trailer has been subject to harsh criticism on YouTube, currently at around 400 likes and 1,500 dislikes. It has also sparked heated debates across Twitter, with “Cuphead” currently trending at 12.6 thousand tweets—with no other news, presumably mostly relating to Enchanted Portals.
Xixo Games Studio is set to launch its Kickstarter campaign for Enchanted Portals on October 24, and releases for Nintendo Switch and PC are in the studio’s immediate plans. OnlySP will keep readers updated on the progress of this campaign once it goes live.
