Watch Conan O’Brien and Kate Upton play Cuphead

Conan O’Brien’s Clueless Gamer series is usually one of the more humorous gaming-focused bits on TV, as the late night host plays games with celebrities and the like.

This week’s edition is rather pleasing for Microsoft fans, as O’Brien delves into the as-yet unreleased Cuphead. The host isn’t alone in this one though, as supermodel Kate Upton gets in on the action.

Cuphead is one of the more eagerly anticipated games of the year, being a Microsoft-exclusive platformer that uses a cartoon-based art style to great effect. The developers sought to emulate the visual style of cartoons from the 1930s, but refused to take shortcuts. Instead, the studio painstakingly drew the animations by hand — the results speak for themselves.

The game launches on PC and Xbox One on 29 September 2017.

Check out the full, occasionally cringe-inducing clip below.
