Players assume the role of fan-favorite character, Jim Lake Jr., as he travels through time to catch the trickster troll Porgon and attempt to stop the time-pocalypse. Players will go on an adventure across the game’s unique worlds and meet familiar characters as they level up armor, gain new abilities and become the hero of Arcadia. Fans can expect all-new content recorded specifically for the game from stars of the series, including Emile Hirsch as Jim Lake Jr., Charlie Saxton as Toby Domzalski, Lexi Medrano as Claire and David Bradley as Merlin.
“Jim is a really special character so I’m very proud to be part of this new video game, which I hope will appeal to a whole new audience of Trollhunters fans,” said Emile Hirsch, who voices Jim Lake Jr., the lead protagonist of the series and video game. Charlie Saxton, voice of Toby Domzalski, said, “It’s been a blast voicing Toby throughout the Tales of Arcadia series, and bringing that character to life in a video game is something I’m very excited to share with our fans.”
“Trollhunters Defenders of Arcadia builds on the fascinating narrative and compelling characters that have been expertly established in the popular trilogy,” said Jim Molinets, SVP of Production, Universal Games and Digital Platforms. “The game provides a deeply rich and immersive gameplay experience that we hope fans will enjoy with friends for a long time to come. ”
