What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Trollhunters: Defenders of Arcadia is an upcoming action/adventure game for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PCs. The game is based off the popular animated series, and is set just before the events of the Wizards: Tales of Arcadia series. Players take on the role of Jim, the hero of the story, and Claire, his girlfriend (in co-op play), as they go on a new adventure to stop Porgon the troll. The monster discovers a new way to wreak havoc by traveling through time to capture new threats to destroy Arcadia. Merlin summons Jim and Claire to gather their friends and defeat the trolls before it's too late. Players will explore through six different worlds, which are broken up into a variety of stages, defeating enemies with their weapons and occasionally calling in friends to cause additional damage as a special attack. Along the way, you'll also try to collect items that are vital to stopping the trolls. This includes gathering gnomes and socks that can be redeemed in the Trollmarket for new abilities and outfits, or wagered for mini-games, like Gnome archery. While there's some violence against trolls and monsters, no blood or gore is shown. There also appears to be a tavern in the Trollmarket, but no drinks are shown being consumed. Otherwise, there's no inappropriate content included in the game. The cast also lends its voice talent to the game, which could get players interested in checking out the shows and movies the game's based on.
