If you’ve been looking forward to Cartoon Network‘s OK K.O. Let’s Play Heroes, you’re in luck. Creator Ian-Jones Quartey wrote on the PlayStation Blog that the game is going to be released on January 23rd. Best of all? A new trailer was also released.
One of the more interesting aspects in the development of the game by Capybara Games is that the team was involved with the series production from the get-go.
“The basic idea for the game came from a couple of great hangouts where we geeked about games we love, weird gameplay concepts and ideas for jokes.” Quartey wrote. “We immediately invited Capy into the animation process so they could understand the characters and see where we were headed. It became a true collaboration with Capy integrating many of our ideas into the game, while the show team found similar inspiration in many of Capy’s ideas. In the end, Capy created an awesome game with a storyline that works on its own.”
OK K.O.! Let’s Play Heroes
More from the blog post:
The console game, OK K.O.! Let’s PLAY Heroes, is part side-scrolling beat-’em-up brawler, part RPG, and just like in the series, it’s about questing to help your friends and fellow heroes while honing your own special skills. In the game, these quests play out kind of like a season of short episodes, where you’re helping people at Lakewood Plaza Turbo, and as you build stronger relationships with those characters, you get to call them in to assist you in battle. And of course, it wouldn’t be a beat-‘em-up without tons of killer punches, kicks, jump attacks and super moves!
OK K.O.! Let’s Play Heroes is coming to PS4 on January 23, 2018.
