Capybara Partners With Cartoon Network For Video Game Based On New Show OK K.O! Let’s Be Heroes
Capybara, known for games like Super Time Force, Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP, and the in-limbo Below, is partnering with Cartoon Network to develop a game based on a new(ish) show called OK K.O! Let's Be Heroes.
You can find screenshots from the game throughout this post, but immediately below, you will find the series' intro.
The universe has existed as a series of shorts on Cartoon Network's YouTube page as well as a mobile game called OK K.O! Lakewood Plaza Turbo for some time, but is now becoming a full show premiering this summer and a larger game. It's unclear when the game will be be releasing.
The show, and coincidentally the game, follows a character named K.O., "an endlessly optimistic kid attempting to level up to be the best he can be in a dynamic universe of friends and challenging foes." The accompanying game will be a brawler with RPG elements.
Nice to see a collaboration like this starting at the show's inception. Hopefully it leads to a better video game tie-in.
