Dark Souls created a new genre of games called soulslike, and Vampire Survivors has spawned survivors-like games. Now, it appears we have the first Splatoon-like game and it comes from Square Enix. Titled FOAMSTARS, the game made its debut at the PlayStation Showcase and will feature four-on-four, foam-to-foam action. So instead of paint that’s found in Splatoon, players will use foam to attack, build, and defend.

“In this game, foam is the ultimate resource,” Square Enix said in a press release. “It can be used in multiple ways: To create slippery surfaces that players can use to surf around the arena at high speed; to build terrain, helping players defend from enemy attacks or creating high vantage points to take out opponents; and finally, to foam up the opposition and win the match.”

The game is currently in development for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 consoles. No release date has been announced, but the development team will share more details about FOAMSTARS in the near future.
