We all know that video game difficulty has become synonymous with Dark Souls, so it was no surprise to see tough-as-nails Xbox and PC platformer Cuphead labelled the “Dark Souls” of sidescrollers. But what if From Software’s famous action RPG franchise really was rendered in the style of a 1930s, rubber hose cartoon?
