Daedalic Entertainment and Spitfire Interactive released Capes on Switch last week, and while it’s flown a bit under the radar (no pun intended), it seems this turn-based outing is well worth your time. Don’t believe me? Check out the accolades trailer to see all the praise coming from outlets far and wide.

At its core, Capes is an action-focused, turn-based superhero strategy game. Players can level up their heroes in numerous handcrafted story missions, combine their powers for unique team-up attacks, and change the tide of battles with devastating ultimate powers. Capes’ strategy and combat aren’t based on luck, random hit-chance, or lurking behind cover. After all, hiding, ducking for cover, and missing hits would feel rather un-superhero-like.

While Capes is Spitfire Interactive’s debut title, the team itself consists of industry veterans, mostly coming from the celebrated Australian indie studio Defiant Development. The story and world was written by video game veteran and comic book enthusiast Morgan Jaffit who already earned his Cape working on the highly acclaimed Hand of Fate and the cult-classic superhero game Freedom Force.
