MINNEAPOLIS – Aug. 18, 2016 – Cartoon Network and GameMill Entertainment have announced Cartoon Network: Battle Crashers , an original side-scrolling action game with lighthearted humor for players of all ages. When Uncle Grandpa accidentally hits the multidimensional switch on his RV, he creates a tear in the universe that brings together the heroes of some of Cartoon Network’s biggest shows to team up against threats from across their many animated worlds.

Cartoon Network: Battle Crashers can be enjoyed alone or in a party with up to four players in drop-in/drop-out local cooperative multiplayer*. There are six playable characters to choose from - Uncle Grandpa, Finn & Jake from Adventure Time, Rigby & Mordecai from Regular Show, Clarence, Gumball from The Amazing World of Gumball, and Steven of Steven Universe - which can be swapped between instantly in solo play. Certain enemies can only be defeated by a specific hero’s unique ability, meaning players will have to combine powers on the fly to succeed.

The game also features special stages with varied gameplay, boss battles and light character progression and customization. A bonus Bonkers mode lets players replay stages with even more wild challenges, as well.

Cartoon Network: Battle Crashers is expected to be in stores November 2016 as a retail and digital release on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Nintendo 3DS™.

*Multiplayer available on the PlayStation®4 system and Xbox One only.
