In the shadows, Rebound emerges as a formidable force in the latest gameplay trailer for Capes, a turn-based superhero tactics game developed by Spitfire Interactive and published by Daedalic Entertainment. Set to release in May 2024 on platforms including PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5/4, and Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One, Capes offers a tactical experience where players can level up heroes and combine their powers for team-up attacks against a backdrop of a dystopian city ruled by supervillains.

Capes RPG Turn-Based

Twenty years after the villains claimed victory, they’ve established a city where superpowers are illegal, and opposition is a distant memory. However, a new team of young heroes is rising, ready to challenge the status quo and liberate King City from its oppressors. Players will navigate through dark, gritty campaigns, uncovering the sinister Enhancement Program by the supervillain Operator Alpha, while optional side missions provide opportunities to deepen heroes’ backstories and abilities.

Capes promises a blend of tactical gameplay and cinematic storytelling, where mastering each hero’s unique skills and ultimate abilities is crucial for success. The game emphasizes strategic combat, hero synergy, and character progression, offering players a chance to defeat evil and reclaim their city from villainy’s grasp.

Spitfire Interactive, known for their work on the critically acclaimed Hand of Fate, brings their expertise to Capes, alongside Daedalic Entertainment, a publisher with a 17-year history of supporting indie developers.

Below is an overview of the game via Steam and the latest trailer.
