Capsule Force Coming to PS4 Early Next Year

It is the year 1999. It is the future.

After years of intergalactic battles, technology gave birth to advanced, galaxy-capturing capsules — tools that Earth’s World Leaders readily supplied to their intergalactic forces. But many of these forces have gone rogue and are now fighting amongst themselves for these powerful orbs.

Greetings, Playstation.Blog readers! We are excited to announce our newest game, Capsule Force, a retro anime-inspired, multiplayer, arcade experience for PS4!

klobit’s core team is comprised of two main members from Austin, Texas — a sound designer/composer, and a tall man who designs, codes, and creates art. We were fortunate enough to have a talented artist help with character art and design.

As fans of retro Japanese games and anime, we really wanted to share our love of the days of cassette tapes and CRT televisions by pulling inspiration from both 80’s space anime aesthetics and the fast-paced nature of arcade games. From energy beams, levitating characters, environment design, and music, we wanted to capture that 80’s, retro feeling and adapt that essence in a way that could translate within a 16-bit arcade era (but with touches that were also unique to our vision!). Thus, Capsule Force was born!

Join the blue team and pink team to battle it out across 8 different arenas. The gameplay is simple enough — destroy your opponent, ride the tram to advance to the final screen, and grab that capsule! But watch out! The path to your enemy’s base is riddled with traps. Whether you battle 1v1 or join the chaos of a 2v2 match, there is bound to be plenty of yelling like school kids.

Dare to impress? Show off your skills or hone in on battle tactics with single-player mission mode. There are more than 30 missions to choose from! Blast through targets, dodge a variety of traps, and race against the clock to unlock levels and features.

Our team at klobit is incredibly excited to publish our first console game and to be able to join the PlayStation family. Thank you for all of your support, and keep an eye out for Capsule Force in early 2015.

Come join us and battle it out on December 6th and 7th at PlayStation Experience in Las Vegas!

THE GALAXY IS IN YOUR HANDS!

  • hellooooooooooooo!

  • does this game has online multiplayer?

  • Darth_NODlike

    I hope there is a video of game play posted soon for those of us that can’t make it to the PlayStation Experience. I really like the look of the game but want to see it in action!

    • Eric Wenske

      We just have an announce trailer right now, but it has now been added to the blog post!

  • Rezolution77

    Sacred Citadel still has not been changed on PSN as stated on the last update for sales.

    Will this be resolved?

  • This looks just like what I`m looking for! Do you guys have a twitter account where I can keep up with development?

  • Wow, this looks awesome. Reminds me of a classic Sega Master System game like Zillion or Quartet.

      I have a soft spot for classic Sega! There were so many good arcade-style games, and we are trying to capture that arcade feeling!

    This lokks perfect for vita! Wait, i mean Game Gear.

  • So many awesome local multiplayer games of the PS4! Must buy more controllers!

  • GaMeR_bOi_83

    No online MP? It’s ok we have share play. Already have a co-op buddy. I have been loving this couch co-op love Sony has been giving us. Gives share play a bigger role and a excuse to buy a second DS4 for when friends come over. Great job guys and gals.

  • Love the retro art of this game. Might have to check this out next year!

  • Armin_Arlert_104

    This looks interesting! Almost like a versus mode for Megaman or something.

    Hey Eric,

    I love the retro art style and the cool music.

    I wanted to ask if you guys would consider on making “Dynamic Themes” and “Avatar Pictures” for the PS4. Your game would look cool displayed on everyone’s PS4.

    Cheers!!!

    Rob aka Graf

    P.S. Please keep posting info on the PS Blog as your game gets closer to launch, thanks.

  • thegodofgreen

    please add online… all the local multiplayer games are pretty simple, yet fun and addicting but would be better if you could challenge random players / the world instead of friends.

  • plaztiksyke

    Any reason that only the women are scantily clad with bulges? It would be nice if the male characters were equally sexualized, at least.

  • yowzagabowza

    Oh my god plaztik, you seriously have a one track mind when it comes to these posts. Wait, no, you also endlessly ask about the audio and 3D as well.

  • This is a quirky tite tat I may ave to also checkout this seems interesting.

  • IMM0RTAL_XVI

    Look like super smash bros to me especially the challenges part ? ill maybe look into it

  • Thanks for the reply!
