This is the best looking game of E3

The best looking game of this year's E3 didn't need holographic goggles, millions of pixels or even a 4K screen.

Inspired by cartoons of the 1930s, Cuphead is a brutally simple boss battler: developed by brothers Chad and Jared Moldenhauer, players take the role of either Cupman or Mugman and proceed to lay the beat down on an assortment of luscious monsters in single player or co-op mode - jumping, ducking and shooting their way to success (or more likely, a beautiful death).

Created using traditional cell animation techniques, the game looks like you're playing a cartoon, letting lose a brand of casual violence that would have Tom and Jerry hissing in jealousy.

An Xbox One exclusive, expect Cuphead to dominate your waking hours from early 2016.
