Is it a Bird? Is it a Plane? No! It’s a Release Date! Capes is Coming to PC and Consoles on May 29th, 2024

Watch the explosive release date trailer and get ready to bring the fight to The Company next month!

BRISBANE, Australia / HAMBURG, Germany, April 17, 2024 - Developer Spitfire Interactive and publisher Daedalic Entertainment are happy to finally announce the release date for the highly anticipated turn-based superhero tactics game Capes. On May 29th the fight for King City begins. Coming to PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4/5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, with pre-orders now available on PlayStation and Switch. Check out the official release announcement trailer.



Spitfire Interactive is a scrappy Australian indie studio, formed by industry veterans, making their debut title Capes. Drawing upon experience that reaches back to Freedom Force (2002) and Teen Titans (2006), Spitfire is reimagining superhero tactics for a new age while learning from the past. Capes brings together a unique blend of classic influences including comics like Days of Future Past, Astro City, or Watchmen, and elements of games such as XCOM and Into the Breach.



The super villains won. 20 years later, in a time when people with superpowers are arrested and taken off the streets, a ragtag group of young heroes fight to liberate King City. Under the questionable guidance of Doctrine, one of the city’s last surviving Capes, this new team must learn to work together, uncover The Company's secrets, and find out whether they're strong enough to become the heroes King City needs them to be.

Recruit other emerging superheroes and take on The Company across a challenging hand-crafted tactical campaign. Tackle smaller stakes and learn to wield your team's powers in optional "patrol missions."



  • 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 raw strength. Choose your heroes wisely and combine their individual superpowers to create powerful combo attacks!
  • Level Up: Complete challenging missions and side-quests to gain XP and unlock your heroes’ potential with new abilities and powerful upgrades!
  • Defeat Evil: Face down vile villains, criminal corporate henchmen, and powerful bosses. Do you have what it takes to free your city from the clutches of villainy!?



Those who want to save the city with flair should consider the Capes: King City Edition, which launches simultaneously. The King City Edition includes the full game and the Supporters Pack filled to the brim with extra content including alternate hero appearances, an art book featuring more than 50 pages of the art behind Capes, and more.
