The original Power Rangers TV show debuted back in 1993, and in the 25 years since, the series has never really gone away, putting out at least one new season every year. Now, developer nWay bringing that history into one fighting game called Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid.
Battle for the Grid is a team-based fighting game that will feature both heroes and villains from Power Rangers canon. While we don’t know exactly which characters will appear in the final game yet, nWay has announced four characters so far: Jason, the Red Ranger from the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers series; Tommy, the original Green Ranger; Lord Drakkon, Tommy’s evil alter-ego; and Gia Moran, the Yellow Ranger from the Super Mega Force TV series. The game’s website also seems to have spots for 11 other unannounced characters. A press release from nWay also mentions “Lord Drakkon Evo II and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Pink Ranger character skins,” which may either be skins for existing fighters or unique characters themselves. The game will also have a season pass which will contain three additional fighters.
This isn’t nWay’s first foray into the Power Rangers universe. In 2017, the developer released a game called Power Ranger: Legacy Wars on mobile platforms. The game was a hybrid fighting and card game, and featured significantly slower fights than the kind seen in Battle for the Grid’s announcement trailer.
Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid is set to release in April on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, with a Windows PC release scheduled for later in the year. The game will be released digitally for $19.99 and will feature cross-platform play on PC, Switch and Xbox One.
