Upon returning to his home the Prince faces and nearly defeats the shapeshifting demon however before the prince can strike the final blow Aku opens a portal through time which sends the hero into the distant future. The hero who takes up the name Jack must travel back to his time in order to finally defeat Aku once and for all.
