“Steven Universe: Save the Light” RPG Coming to Consoles This Summer
Fans of Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe can look forward to another RPG. Steven Universe: Save the Light will be released sometime this summer!
Steven Universe: Save the Light is a sequel to 2015’s mobile role-playing game Steven Universe: Attack the Light. The sequel will also be coming to gaming consoles. While Attack the Light saw Steven play a supporting role, the gameplay trailer implies he will be more active in the sequel. Connie and Greg Universe will also be joining the Crystal Gems this time around. I hope Lapis and Peridot show up too.
Rebecca Sugar, the creator of the hit show, has worked closely with the game developer, Grumpyface Studios. She also wrote an original story for the game. The plot deals with the Crystal Gems trying to retrieve a weapon that is capable of unleashing a lot of magical power.
According to Cartoon Network, the upcoming game is for longtime fans of the series as well as for individuals who are new to it. You can expect to see a lot of familiar faces along with the enjoyable music from the show.
The upcoming RPG will include real-time as well as turn-based gameplay. The characters can also be customized. It will also feature puzzles. Players will be able to enjoy different power-ups and buffs to defeat enemies. You can check out Rebecca talking about the game and the gameplay in the PAX East video below. She’s obviously excited about it!
