March 18: We have an update on Capes and the release date is approaching soon. Today, publisher Daedalic Entertainment and developer Spitfire Interactive confirmed the launch for May 2024 – an exact date will be shared “very soon”.

Capes, which was announced for Switch just over a year ago, is a turn-based superhero tactics game. Although it was originally slated for last year, it ended up being quietly delayed.

Here’s an official overview:

Capes is a highly anticipated turn-based superhero strategy game where XCOM fans will feel right at home. Level up your heroes and combine their powers to access devastating team up attacks in strategically challenging missions. Master compelling tactical gameplay while uncovering a cinematic story: Twenty years ago, the supervillains won. Since then, they’ve created a dystopian city where developing superpowers is a crime and no one has dared oppose them. Until now! Assemble a ragtag team of young heroes and hone their skills and take back King City. Play across the dark and gritty campaign to reveal the truth behind the horrific Enhancement Program of supervillain Operator Alpha and complete optional side-missions to level up your heroes and learn more about their past.

Key Features

  • Be Mighty: Play as a team of heroic protectors, each with unique skills and powers. Master each hero and unleash their devastating ultimate abilities!
  • Assemble Your Team: Combat isn’t based on random numbers; knowing which hero Team Up abilities are best for the job will be key to your success!
  • Level Up: Complete challenging missions and side-quests to improve your heroes with new abilities and powerful upgrades!
  • Defeat Evil: Face down vile villains and criminal corporate henchmen. Do you have what it takes to free your city from the clutches of villainy!?
