In Steven Universe: Unleash the Light, a colorful platformer RPG, you can play as your favorite characters from the popular animated Cartoon Network series -- the Gems, Steven, Lapis Lazuli or Bismuth. Assemble a team to fight against two Prism-wielding Gems. Unlock new abilities, equip new costumes and change formation into Gem fusions like Sunstone or Rainbow Quartz 2.0.

Steven Universe -- the TV show -- focuses on the Crystal Gems, a team of magical beings that guard the universe, and their half-human, half-Gem "little brother" Steven. As the bumbling boy learns how to be a hero alongside the Gems -- Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl -- they always save the day as a team. The game features an original story from the show's creator, Rebecca Sugar, and features the Cartoon Network voice cast.
