Already no stranger to the crossover game, Cartoon Network will once again bring some of its biggest properties together with Cartoon Network: Battle Crashers. The epic adventure will launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo 3DS this November.
Bringing together the likes of Adventure Time and Steven Universe, Cartoon Network: Battle Crashers is an original side-scrolling adventure from GameMill Entertainment (Goosebumps: The Game). Following an accidental tear in the universe caused by Uncle Grandpa, the CN Universe must come together to stop their collected enemies from taking over the world.
Featuring both solo and four-player co-op play, Battle Crashers pulls from the modern Cartoon Network line-up. Fans of the network can look forward to playing as Finn & Jake (Adventure Time), Uncle Grandpa (Uncle Grandpa), Steven (Steven Universe), Mordecai & Rigby (Regular Show), Clarence (Clarence) and Gumball (The Amazing World of Gumball). Single adventurers can even swap character mid-play, which will be necessary, as certain enemies can only be defeated by certain characters.
The world of Cartoon Network doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to gaming. Whether it was the series of Adventure Time games, or the crossover Punch Time Explosion, developers have had a tough time properly adapting the material. And while we’re still a few months off, Battle Crashers at least looks fun to play. I do wish the title pulled from the backlog of the network’s shows, though. No Powerpuff Girls? Codename: Kids Next Door? Samurai Jack?
