|Platform(s)|| Wii U|
Cartoon Network: Crossover Chaos is a fighting video game developed by Dark Heart Games. The game was published by Fantendo and distributed by Cartoon Network Interactive. It is the spiritual successor of Cartoon Network: Punch Time Explosion. It is being developed for the Wii U and the PlayStation 4 platforms.
Cartoon Network: Crossover Chaos!! is a mascot brawler fighting game bringing together several characters from the Cartoon Network Multiverse in one epic battle that plays very similar to the J-Stars Victory VS games unlike its predecessor which resembled the Super Smash Bros. series. Up to four players (human or CPU controlled) can control a character and can move and fight in all directions of a 3D battle field, which is partially destructible. Each stage is unique and advanced players should know the layout of each map to use it to their advantage. A defeated character comes back after a set amount of time passes. To win the battle, all three sections of the WIN gauge at the top of the screen have to be filled; the gauge fills one section each time an opponent is defeated. The top of the screen shows the life gauge of the players on the field and in the right bottom corner is a map of the stage. When players strike one another, glowing cubes will fall out of them. If players collect enough of these cubes, they will fill up their stamina which can be used for attacks. When the stamina bar is full they can unleash a powerful special attack against their opponents, which is their ultimate attack that most of the time KO's an opponent. Characters can team up with certain assist characters (the equivalents of Assist Trophies) and do Synergy attacks. For example, Madame Foster brings a plate of cookies to the arena, Chowder eats them, turning fat, and Madame Foster rolls him around the stage. You can choose two Assist Character to bring into battle that an be activated at any time. However when used they have a reloading time before they can be used again. Characters with weaker attacks have a quicker reloading time than ones with more powerful attacks. When having your Synergy Partner as assist they, when used, have a huge reloading time.
Fighters can use regular attacks, power attacks, area-based attacks, and finishing moves:
- Normal Attacks: fast attacks that do not consume stamina. They are the main part of the battle, and all combos begin with them. You can make combo's by mixing strong and weak attacks.
- Power Attacks: slow, but powerful strikes that can break an opponent's guard. They use stamina and leave the user open, but they have a big impact if they connect and their power can be increased by charging them up.
- Ranged Attacks: long range attacks that deal a lot of damage. They use stamina, but allow to hit opponents over a wide area. Enemies can sidestep these attacks however.
- Special Moves: super special techniques activated when the Stamina Meter is full, which fills upon collecting the stamina cubes. It packs enough wallop to decide the match if it can be pulled off.

Like in every fighting game there are several modes you can play on.
This is the standard mode in the game where you can fight against each other with a max of four players. Normal fighting rules apply to this mode. One can choose to do a Free-for-All in which every player fights for themselves. The second option is Team Battle in which two players are paired together and both share a support and the win gauge.
Giant Mode is the same as Versus Mode only this time around only giant characters are playable, that normally aren't playable. Assists are disabled in Giant Mode and the maps have been adjusted to a size where giants can battle.
In the Story Mode you will go through a complete story with the characters of the Cartoon Network universe as the whole world is in danger. Like in the certain other universes, like the Marvel universe, the shows of Cartoon Network exist in the same universe, unlike the previous installment. There are a few odd ones, namely the characters from Samurai Jack and Adventure Time who come from the future. Adventure Time being set much later than Samurai Jack.
For the complete story: Clash of Cartoons
Choose a character and fight your way to the top and defeat the boss of the Adventure Mode. Aside from fighting against one or multiple character, you will also encounter the three minigames one can play. You can't play this mode with giant characters, but may encounter one. The final battle always is either fighting HIM, Aku, The Beast or The Lich on their respective stage.
In Boss Rush one will fight through all of the boss battles, that are not CPU battles, fought throughout the story. The order of the bosses are completely random, and there only are a few healing items in the safe haven between the battles.
There are three mini-games available throughout the game, several unlock missions are attached to it.
- Treasure Hunt: collect the 8 treasures hidden in the stage before the time runs out.
- Hoop Race: run through all the rings/hoops, in order, on the stage and try to defeat the champion of the stage.
- Horde Battle: defeat all the enemies swarming the stage, the enemies are related to the stage on is fighting on.
- Horde Battle VS: try to defeat more enemies than the other player on the stage.
In Training mode you can fight against an adjustable CPU to explore a character's moveset or just train a little bit. This mode is also available for giant characters.
There is a certain amount of collectables throughout the game that, when aquired, can be viewed in the Vault. They are data on characters from the Cartoon Network universe. For a complete list on the date view Cartoon Network: Crossover Chaos!!/Vault.
