Steven Universe "Save The Light" Console RPG Coming This Summer Thu, 09 Mar 2017 17:07:50 -0500 Greyson Ditzler

Cartoon Network has recently announced that a sequel to Grumpyface Studios' mobile RPG Steven Universe: Attack the Light, called Steven Universe: Save the Light, will be coming to consoles this summer.

Steven Universe: Attack the Light was a 2015 mobile game based on the Cartoon Network series Steven Universe, wherein Steven and the other Crystal Gems made their way across familiar and new landscapes tracking down monsters made of light in a turn-based RPG heavily inspired by Paper Mario. 

The first game was a rare example of both a well-executed licensed game, as well as a mechanically deep mobile game, as it offered a decently lengthy and rather enjoyable adventure for a pittance of a price.

Steven Universe: Save the Light promises to be an expanded sequel to the original, with "a customizable battle party (pick your favorite four characters!), 3D environments to explore, and an all new original story co-written directly by (series creator) @rebeccasugar !"

It can also be seen through the few available screen shots that the game will take place, at least in part, in the series's main location of Beach City this time around. Several secondary characters from the series can be seen such as Sadie, Lars, and Ronaldo, and new party members such as Greg and Connie have been added.

The artstyle also appears to have been smoothed out slightly since the original, with a wider assortment of colors and greater conveyance of depth, alongside the removal of visible outlines.
