Capes Announced - Superhero Strategy RPG

A few years back, the Hand of Fate series managed to successfully combine a board game with a Shadow of Mordor-style action system. And while Defiant Development, the studio that made those games, shut its doors soon after releasing the second Hand of Fate game, its key team members are now back as Spitfire Interactive.

Their debut project is known simply as Capes - a turn-based superhero strategy RPG currently scheduled for a 2023 release. And what's important to know here is that Morgan Jaffit, one of the studio's founders, also had a hand in creating Freedom Force. So, as far as superhero RPGs are concerned, this one might be quite interesting.

Here's the official reveal trailer, courtesy of IGN:
