Studio MDHR has revealed the first trailer for Cuphead, a sidescrolling indie platformer coming to PC and Xbox One.

Cuphead's distinctive style - reminiscent of classic Mickey Mouse cartoons - caught the attention of those watching Microsoft's E3 press conference when it appeared as part of their ID@Xbox indie show-reel.

The game is the very first from Studio MDHR (Studio Moldenhauer), a small team formed of brothers Chad & Jared Moldenhauer.

Also collaborating with the Moldenhauers on Cuphead are coder Cosmin Chivulescu and composer Kristofer Maddigan.

Cuphead is set for release later this year.
