Steven Universe Save The Light Coming To Game Consoles This Summer
This week, Cartoon Network Games has announced that they will be releasing a brand new game based on the popular Cartoon Network show – Steven Universe this summer. The new game will be called “Steven Universe: Save The Light” and will be the first time that a game based on the show will be released for game consoles. The game is also a sequel to the action role-playing mobile game Steven Universe: Attack the Light.
In Steven Universe: Save The Light, Steven and his Crystal Gems teammates are on a quest to retrieve a powerful and magical weapon that has gone missing from Beach City, in order to get the weapon, they must fight for it back. The console RPG features an original story written by Steven Universe creator – Rebecca Sugar, it also features real-time and turn-based gameplay, customisable battle parties (select four of your favourite characters) and puzzles. When compared to the actual show, the new game has a more “cutified”, softer and outline-less art style.
The game is developed by Grumpyface Studios, the same game developer that made Steven Universe: Attack The Light, Teeny Titans and Powerpuff Girls: Flipped Out. The new game is on demonstration (alongside another new console game from Cartoon Network Games and Capybara Games – OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes) at the PAX East (Penny Arcade Expo) gaming convention in Boston, Massachusetts this weekend (10/03/2017 – 12/03/2017). No exact release date has been announced yet, but it will be released sometime this summer.
