Perhaps the most interesting and challenging new Xbox One game to come around in a while is Cuphead (available as a digital download from Best Buy). The graphics are based on early 19th century cartoons, the Jazzy soundtrack as well, and the action is frantic. This is one of the hottest games from Microsoft and everyone seems to love it. So imagine playing it with an exclusive Cuphead themed controller, sent to us from Microsoft and designed by the Xbox Design Lab, and only available from Best Buy via this contest. That’s right, the only way to get one is to win one of the 5 that we are giving away as prizes.

Paul Hunter recently reviewed Cuphead for the Best Buy blog. Read his review to see why so many people are crazy about this game. He discusses the graphics, the bosses, the stages and most importantly, the difficulty—this will put your gaming chops to the test!

Is this the game of the year for you

Cuphead has actually been nominated for some prestigious awards at The Game Awards this year: Best Art Direction, Best Score/Music, Best Action Game, Best Independent Game, and Best Debut Indie Game. (it won the awards shown in green!).

Of course, Cuphead is just one of many, many great games that you may be eager to play on your Xbox One with one of these exclusive new controllers—and that’s the important question if you are going to have a chance to win this contest.
