Teslas are getting a major gaming upgrade, with Elon Musk confirming Model 3, Model S, and Model X are getting run-and-gun platformer Cuphead.
The Tesla CEO revealed that his company worked with Cuphead developer Studio MDHR on Sunday’s Ride the Lightning podcast.
“It’s a cool game. It’s insanely difficult, it’s sadistically difficult. It’s a twisted plot. It’s dark. It looks like some cute little Disney thing and you’re like, ‘This plot is very dark’,” Musk told host Ryan Caffrey.
The game first hit Xbox One and PC as a Microsoft exclusive in 2017, beforein April. It’s carefully crafted after the Fleischer and Disney ’30s animation style and pits you against a bunch of increasingly intense bosses.
Cuphead should hit cars later this summer, but will only include the game’s Inkwell Isle One segment due to their storage limitations, Tesla told IGN. You’ll only be able to play it using a wired USB controller — it’d be impossibly frustrating using the display’s touchscreen controls.
Regardless of these limitations, it’s a major step up fromcurrently playable in Tesla cars. Musk also mentioned that a “dune buggy” driving game is being tested.
Neither MDHR nor Tesla immediately responded to requests for comment.
