Ian Jones-Quartey won’t tell anyone if the current season of OK KO is its last or not, but even if the end is approaching, the man sure knows how to pull an attention-grabbing, crowd-pleasing stunt. Last year’s Crossover Nexus reunited every single character in Cartoon Network history into one 11-minute short, and this time the show came to SDCC with an even bigger surprise.
If you missed the digital releases of Steven Universe: Save the Light and OK KO: Let’s Play Heroes, good news….Steven and KO are going physical. The pair of CN games has now become one, bundled together in a real-world boxed release. You’ll be able to get them both at a discounted price, and they’re also making their Switch debuts today.
Cartoon Network has been slowly refining the work that comes out of its video game factory. At first they made cheesy Internet Flash games. Then they made mindless freemium phone games. Within the last year, they’ve finally upgraded to full-fledged multi-hour story-driven RPG experiences. Steven Universe and KO (of OK KO: Let’s Be Heroes) were the subject of two that just came out a few months ago.
If you don’t watch Cartoon Network’s OK KO: Let’s Be Heroes, you should. It’s a hysterical, storyboard-driven comedic calamity involving a wondrous world of superheroes and the one tiny strip mall that happens to be our viewpoint into it. KO, the shrimp the series revolves around, works at Gar’s Bodega where he helps out employees Radicles and Enid and sometimes has to battle robots sent by the evil Lord Boxman, who runs the business across the street.
