Cuphead Guide: How To Unlock Black And White Mode

Making Cuphead look even more like a 1930s cartoon.

Cuphead‘s graphical style is gorgeous- it pops and is like a vintage 1930s cartoon in so many ways. Except, as some of our most astute readers have probably figured out, a lot of cartoons and cinema in the 1930s was black and white, and not full color.

So- how to make Cuphead look even more like its very obvious inspiration? As with everything else in the game, it will be difficult. But you can do it! Here’s how this will work:

  • While speaking with NPCs you will come across a turtle who is sitting on a rock and he will give you a hint- his hint is referring to unlocking this mode
  • Essentially, you need to complete all of the game’s platforming stages, and you need to do it without shooting any enemies. You can still use supers granting you invulnerability, and dashing and parrying will be allowed- but no shooting.
    • Forest Follies
    • Treetop Trouble
    • Perilous Piers
    • Rugged Ridge
    • Funfair Fever
    • Funhouse Fazzle
  • Completing a level in such a way gets you a ‘P’ grade and a ‘P’ flag. Once you have a P Grade and P Flag on all stages, you unlock the black and white mode.
