Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time is an upcoming action platform game that sees the original cast of actors from the Samurai Jack cartoon return to reprise their respective roles. Taking place in the cartoon canon, Battle Through Time's story will tie into the final season of the show.
In the video above, voice actors B.J. Ward, Grey Delisle-Griffin, and Kevin Michael Richardson offer a behind-the-scenes look at their respective characters: Hag Witch, Josephine Clench, and Demongo.
The trailer also showcases that Battle Through Time will occasionally change perspectives--while both Hag Witch and Demongo are fought in open 3D spaces, the fight against Josephine Clench takes place on a train and occurs within a 2D plane.
A beloved cartoon, Samurai Jack tells the story of the titular Jack, a samurai prince trying to save the world from Aku, a demon. Aku stops Jack by sending him far into the future to a time when Aku has already largely succeeded in taking over the world. Jack resolves to protect the inhabitants of the future until he can find a way to return to the past and end Aku before the demon can rise to power.
Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time will be released digitally for Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC on August 21. Limited Run Games is selling a limited-time physical version for PS4 and Switch that will be available for pre-order on Friday, August 14 at 7 AM PT / 10 AM ET.
