The first full-length trailer for Batman Ninja debuted today, and while footage is in Japanese, without English subtitles, it's tough to deny that the film is absolutely gorgeous.

'Batman Ninja is the story of how Batman, the Bat Family, and a number of Gotham's criminals are transported through time and space back to Medieval Japan where they become embroiled in a local power struggle.

The plot of the film revolves around Batman attempting to stop The Joker and his minions from altering the future of Japan. The trailers show the Dark Knight donning shogun's armor to take on an extravagantly costumed Joker.

As we can see Gotham City has been traded for a highly-stylized quasi-historical version of feudal Japan, where Batman's crimefighting endeavor sees him take the form of an armored, sword-swinging samurai/ninja hybrid. Rounding out the Caped Crusader's reimagined rogues gallery are Deathstroke, the Penguin, Harley Quinn, Two-Face and Gorilla Grodd.

Batman Ninja is being directed by Jumpei Mizusaki, who previously worked on JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.

The film comes from industry veterans Junpei Mizusaki, Takashi Okazashi, and Kazuki Nakashima, among others. Batman Ninja, however, looks like it's on a whole other level of lavish design that we've never seen before, aided by the 3-D animation, which has never looked better in anime form (I'm looking at you Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters).

While Batman Ninja has yet to announce a specific release date, the feature is expected to arrive on DVD/Blu-ray sometime in 2018.
