Power Rangers Fighting Game Morphin to Consoles in April

Power Rangers Fighting Game Morphin to Consoles in April

After many long years, there's finally a Power Ranger fighting game again.

The Power Rangers have been going strong on television for 25 years, and the Super Sentai franchise it's based on has been running in Japan for 44 years. It's a shame that the number of great Power Rangers games is actually pretty low. Today developer nWay is ready to take its shot, announcing Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

Battle for the Grid is a fighting game from the same folks who brought fans Power Rangers: Legacy Wars to mobile platforms in 2017. In fact, the aesthetic of Battle for the Grid is shared with the popular mobile game. There's no concrete list of fighters that will be available in the game, but the Mighty Morphin Red and Green Rangers feature heavily in the trailer, alongside a brief appearance by Super MegaForce Yellow.

Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid will set players back $19.99 on all platforms. The PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch version are coming in April 2019, while the PC release is coming to Steam later this year. Pre-ordering nets you the Green Ranger V2 skin and a digital art book, and there will be a $39.99 Digital Collector's Edition, which offers the game, Season One Pass (three new characters), and the exclusive Lord Drakkon Evo II (from the recent Power Rangers: Shattered Grid comics) and Mighty Morphin Pink skins. The developer is promising cross-play and player progression will easily shift from platform to platform.

"Power Rangers fans have been asking for a high fidelity fighting game on console and PC that match up iconic Rangers and villains across the expansive Power Rangers multiverse for quite some time now," said Taehoon Kim, co-founder and CEO of nWay. "We wanted to deliver this to the fans and make sure it has cross-play and cross-progression capabilities as we believe playing with friends across multiple platforms at the same time is where the future of gaming is headed."

Hopefully, nWay is up to the task of making a proper fighting game. The last good Power Rangers fighting game was Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Fighting Edition, released on the Super Nintendo way back in 1995.
