Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid now has some gameplay footage, finally.
And in case you somehow didn’t know about this, allow me to catch you up on the details. The game takes advantage of the Shattered Grid storylines. Because of this strange big ball of wibbly wobbly timey-wimey stuff, the developers can bring pretty much any of the multitude of characters from the Power Rangers canon into this game. So fans will have an endless array of Rangers and baddies to choose from with this particular fighting game. The game will feature Rangers and villains from across the Power Rangers universe – including the original Red Ranger, the Yellow Super Megaforce Ranger, the evil Lord Drakkon, and fan-favorite Green Ranger, just to name a few. I just hope they manage to capture some of that really terrible 90s cheese that the TV shows were often known for.
The team members did have some more details to share in addition to the new gameplay trailer in various interviews. It’s now been confirmed that the game is a 3v3 fighter in the style of titles like Dragon Ball FighterZ and the Marvel vs. Capcom series. And because the game is being built in Unity, there’s a solid base in terms of performance, as well as a much quicker turnaround time on new content.
Speaking of new content, there are absolutely plans to add new content post-launch, as Steve Kuroki explains:
Absolutely! We have 25 years of Power Rangers history to tap into and every fan has a different favorite Ranger, so we want to keep adding more and more warriors to the roster. We really want this game to have a long life, so in addition to new warriors, we also want to add new stories to play in the arcade mode.
Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid will release on Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One this April, so if you’re waiting to get in on some old school martial arts and terrible dubbing action, you’re only in for a short wait. There’s also a PC release following later in 2019. And at an affordable $20 price tag, what 90s kid could afford to pass this up?
Until then you should tide yourself over by taking a look at the latest gameplay trailer for the game, which can be seen below. If you want to know more about the game, check out a really in-depth preview of the game Playstation did with Steve Kuroki, VP of Creative at nWay.
