The Steven Universe games are strange beasts. Save the Light releases tomorrow for PlayStation 4 and November 3 for Xbox One. It serves as a direct sequel to Attack the Light, which released on Android and iOS. That's the exact opposite of how most game series tend to work. On top of that, Save the Light will be the 15th game involving the characters from Steven Universe.
Strangely, or perhaps less strange for fans of the hugely popular Cartoon Network series, the console adaptation of the franchise looks to be incredibly well put together. The aesthetic remains true to the show by adopting an almost Paper Mario-like style. The combat system also appears to be something that fans of classic RPGs and newcomers alike could enjoy with a variety of special moves, summon-like fusion forms, and unique battle mechanics that freshen up the hybrid real-time and turn-based battles.
Steven, Garnet, Pearl, Amethyst, Connie, Greg, and Peridot all join forces to save the light tomorrow on PS4 and November 3 on Xbox One.
