Xixo Games Studio is a two-team Spanish studio that is currently working on Enchanted Portals. Just like Cuphead, Enchanted Portals is a 2D, side scrolling, run and gun game with old-school cartoonish graphics. It does look like a reskinned Cuphead and since the release of the trailer there has been a huge backlash.
Even so, I have to admit the game looks pretty good. Usually re-skins do not look great compared to the original, however, this one looks very well done. While I understand the frustration, I wouldn’t mind if someone re-skinned one of my favorite games, as long it is good.
From my perspective the game will probably help the specific genre grow even more. I mean if this game ends up being great, then people who did not know Cuphead, will probably check it out. Of course this is only my opinion since I have no idea how these things actually work.
Enchanted Portals is 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.
