From Homer to He-Man: Immortals Fenyx Rising is the cartoon caper of open world games

In the time before kids had TikTok, Fortnite and sexting, they had Saturday morning cartoons. He-Man, Thundercats, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – a pantheon of bubblegum classics that still have their fingerprints all over pop culture today. 

It’s no surprise, then, that the generation reared on them would now be finding themselves creating videogames that tap into a similar vein: Ubisoft’s Immortals Fenyx Rising, released this week on PS5, Xbox Series X and pretty much every console there is, owes as much to Masters of the Universe, at least in terms of spirit, as it does to Plato and Homer.
