It's a beautiful looking thing with the current demo including 10 story stages, 28 versus mode stages and boss battles, all accessed through a full map of Eternia. It's also got a playable He-Man, Man-At-Arms, BattleCat, Sorceress, Skeletor, Evil-Lyn, She-Ra , Ram-Man , Teela, Orko and inexplicable guest star Lion-O.
