In an interview given to The Nintendo Force magazine, heads of Studio MDHR shared the worrying statistics of only 20 per cent of Cuphead's secrets being discovered so far, and how the studio would love to make a huge hand-drawn Zelda game.

As reported by Destructoid, Maja, Chad and Jared Moldenhauer claim that 80 per cent of their inhumanely difficult platformer secrets remains undiscovered, and it gets worse.

Well, it's only worse if your main quest in life is cracking Cuphead's secrets, because Studio MDHR have plenty of content coming in with the Delicious Last Course DLC, which means more secrets as well.

Cuphead launched on Switch on 18 April 2019 and with it brought a ton of fresh and delicious content for all the platforms, but it seems that the Switch launch made Studio MDHR catch the Zelda bug. 

Jared Moldenhauer claims it'd be a dream to have "a sprawling Zelda title brought to life in a doting 2D hand-animated style...Think of all the expressiveness and life you could bring to the tribes, people, and enemies of a universe that rich", he said. 

Knowing Studio MDHR's attention to detail, we'd actually love to see what they had in mind, although they'd probably have to make some difficulty concessions.

After all, that poor dude that's being called Zelda by half the planet is one of Nintendo's most treasured properties, and we don't think Nintendo are overly keen on Dark Souls-ing it a bit.

Nevertheless, the amount of passion with which Studio MDHR speak of Zelda really makes us want to see what they have in store. 

"Much like Cuphead, we would get to test our design mettle coming up with screen-filling bosses of an entirely different nature. Of course, backgrounds would be completely hand-painted with nothing re-used! The list just goes on and on. It would be an absolute dream come true", they added.

Zelda games have steadily evolved into an open world experience although it bears reminding that the latest one, Cadence of Hyrule, breaks the mould somewhat while losing none of the charm of the original. Now, what would Cuphead do?
