Capes is Flying in with Two New Hero Trailers Ahead of  the Game’s Launch on May 29th!

Check out the speedster Mercurial and the electrifying Weathervane!

BRISBANE, Australia / HAMBURG, Germany, May 21, 2024 – Developer Spitfire Interactive and Publisher Daedalic Entertainment posted two new trailers for their upcoming turn-based superhero tactics game Capes, which is coming to PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5/4, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One on May 29th, 2024.

MEET MERCURIAL

Mercurial is a versatile hero who combines immense speed with raw power. Even before getting her powers, Mercurial let her fists do the talking. From street fighting to professional combat sports, she’s been an active presence on the local scene. However, once she realized that her reflexes and speed had become inhuman, she knew she had just two options: join the Capes or get captured by The Company – the group that declared superpowers illegal.

Mercurial’s speed allows her to cover huge distances, land some hefty punches, confuse or even disarm enemies and get out of danger, all within the blink of an eye.

MEET WEATHERVANE

Weathervane was a keen football player with a quick temper and big dreams. He’s been training hard and blowing through the competition, but that all changes when he accidentally unleashes his powers and gets captured by The Company for nefarious experiments. Luckily, the Capes save his life. He joins them to fight the good fight…and to get revenge.

Weathervane’s Lightning Scourge shocks multiple enemies at once, while his wind abilities allow him to push and pull fuel barrels right to where he wants them – with explosive results!
