A new Steven Universe video game for mobile devices, featuring an original story by show creator Rebecca Sugar and the Steven Universe creative team, was released this week.
Developed by Grumpyface Studios (Castle Doombad, Super Mole Escape) in partnership with Cartoon Network, Steven Universe RPG: Attack the Light sees Steven and the Crystal Gems band together to battle numerous nasties.
The game has touch controls, a turn-based battle system, and a tone more reminiscent of Mario RPG and Paper Mario than the oh-so-serious Final Fantasy equivalent—one of the power-ups Steven can bust out of his trusty cheeseburger backpack is the team-reviving “Together Breakfast”.
A Steven Universe video game was first hinted at during Rebecca Sugar’s Reddit AMA in August 2014. Responding to a question about what a Steven Universe video game might be like, she responded, “I would want it to be an RPG!!!”
