Like magic from another dimension, Enchanted Portals has appeared with an adorable trailer and a familiar play style. This game is styled like Cuphead and is destined for a life on the Nintendo Switch. It is a co-op platformer/shooter that brings back memories of jumping through a magical land and blasting things with a snap of your fingers.

The game is being developed by Xixo Studio, which is a small two-person team that is major fans of Cuphead. They are working on Kickstarter to raise funds for a release on the Nintendo Switch. This game takes a magical adventure of their design and mixes it with all the aspects that fans love from Cuphead. 

Many people are already calling it a discount Cuphead due to obvious inspiration from the game. The combat, music, style, and feel all look close to the formula, but it seems to be a much slower variant. The animation is a little wonky, but that is to be expected from such a small team.

On the bright side, the backgrounds are vibrant and pretty, and there seems to be a good mix of bosses to give it a unique feel. Like Cuphead, it does feature a co-op ability so two players can fight the dangers side by side.

Fans are already splitting in the community about whether this is a unique and great spin on the game or if it is simply a discount copy. The main character looks really basic, and the bosses, although varieties, can appear fairly basic. There is the interesting ones like the rooster man or the giant robotic cow, but the frog and the moon look basic and bland.

The main characters themselves lose some value when reading through the description. “Bob and Penny are two rookie magicians stuck between dimensions which will have to face numerous dangers in order to retrieve the pages of the Magic Book and be able to return home safely,” it reads. From the names to the premise, the game feels fairly basic, and many fans are concerned about this.

The game could be great or a complete flop, but it is way too early to tell. If you are a fan of Cuphead, proceed with caution as this game might not live up to expectations. If you are new to this type of game, then maybe you see a diamond in the rough through the trailer alone.

The game will be going to Kickstarter on October 24. Keep an eye on the game’s social media pages to know when and where things are going to happen. This is a small team, but they already seem to have big dreams and even bigger ambition.
