Cuphead may well be one of the most well-received 2D run 'n gun platformers of recent times, but how would its standout aesthetic have looked if everything was in 3D instead? If you've been hoping to find the answer to that very specific question, you're in luck.

Raf Grassetti, art director on God of War, has recreated the game's heroes Cuphead and Mugman. We've actually featured his work on the site several times over the past few months; he's been sharing different takes on beloved gaming characters, including a large portion of the Super Smash Bros. roster.

That's not all for Cuphead and co., though, as Grassetti has also recently posted these designs for King Dice and the Devil. We think they look great, even with Cuphead's original art style being so important to the game's overall feel.

What do you think? Are you a fan of these designs? Remember, Cuphead is soon getting its very own Netflix show.
