Batman Ninja is a cross-cultural experiment in animation. The work of two studios collaborating across the world to bring the Caped Crusader from Gotham to the far East, the Geek Down’s Pat, Rick, and Mx were completely blind-sided by the clash. Seriously, when even the creators of a thing admit to being completely lost, you KNOW it’s about to hit the fan!
While battling Gorilla Grodd at Arkham Asylum, Batman is caught in Grodd’s Quake Engine time displacement machine and sent to Feudal Japan. There, he is chased by samurai working for the Joker. During his escape, Batman meets up with Catwoman, who reveals everyone else arrived two years earlier (due to Batman being in the outermost area affected by the Quake Engine.) He learns from her that all of Gotham City’s top criminals have become feudal lords after deceiving the Sengoku daimyō, battling each other until only one state remains. In order to stop the villains from changing history, Batman and Catwoman must get to the Quake Engine in Arkham Castle (formerly the asylum).
