Another classic Batman-Joker tale is coming our way.

The first English trailer for the upcoming animated DC film, Batman Ninja, was released online on Wednesday, along with the release date: May 8. The film transplants Batman, Joker, and a host of other iconic characters such as Harley Quinn, Catwoman and Robin, to feudal Japan, where the Dark Knight and the Crown Prince of Crime must battle each other and fulfil an ancient prophecy.

The film has been building steady buzz online ever since the release of its visually arresting first trailer. This is the first time fans have been able to witness the stylish animation in English, though. The Japanese trailer was first released in December, without any word of a future release in English.

Here’s the official plot synopsis for the film: “Batman Ninja takes a journey across the ages as Gorilla Grodd’s time displacement machine transports many of Batman’s worst enemies to Feudal Japan – along with the Dark Knight and a few of his allies. The villains take over the forms of the feudal lords that rule the divided land, with the Joker taking the lead among the warring factions. As his traditional high-tech weaponry is exhausted almost immediately, Batman must rely on his intellect and his allies – including Catwoman and the extended Bat-family – to restore order to the land, and return to present-day Gotham City.”

Batman Ninja is directed by Junpei Mizusaki and features the voices of Roger Craig Smith as Batman and Tony Hale as the Joker.
