The trailer starts with all kinds of monsters and creatures standing on both sides of a field, before running toward each other to start a battle. You’re then taken away from the ensuing war to see a male and female character.
Monsters are then seen running towards the two characters. The two characters join in the battle. The male character is seen slaying enemies with the two swords he is wielding. He takes down about five creatures before the female comes in with her sword and shield. After the female takes down a couple of enemies, a giant creature swings its weapon at her. She is then saved by another male character who blocks the creature’s weapon with his own giant sword.
A orange-haired female then leaps up in the air and strikes the creature in the head with her Thor-like hammer. After that, a younger female character is seen using some kind of fire magic. You then see a spiky-haired man lift and throw an entire mountain. On top of the mountain is a character that resembles Link, except wearing blue.
Five other characters appear. One has magic that can turn an enemy into a skeleton. One is seen kicking a character like she knew the move Blaze Kick. Another is very Elsa-like in terms of her look and her ice powers. When she uses that power, another character is seen ride the ice who the fires a bow-and-arrow. The final charcter has some sort magic card power that she uses to take down a trio of enemies.
At the end, all of the character team up and run toward a dark castle.
