the Season Pass includes story modes for all added characters. Also, could you try at least including some images, like a basic banner? Some screenshots? links to video?

Gimme OG White Range skin for Green please? That is all e.e

Really though gameplay looks sweet. If it releases on Steam on summer + at that price I'll surely be able to grab it :D

making the cover image now, needed the size which isn't included in the basic thread builder. forgot the screen shots and the character vid which I'll add real quick. I made the OT because no one else volunteered and I figured I'd help.

I’m a little disappointed the pre-orders for Switch ended early. I was waiting until midnight on the 26th, Australian time, to see if the Deluxe Edition was going to be available locally. The codes from the offical web store are for the U.S. eShop and I didn’t want this tied to a secondary account. However, I intended to pre-order the Deluxe Edition if it hadn’t shown up by morning. It’s just a skin, so it’s not a big deal, but hopefully it’s available to purchase in the near future.

Do we know when it’s going live?

Wanted to do the same. But the preorders for Switch were global, that's why there was no regional distinction. Global SKU = no need for separate keys.

I had no idea. :( It wasn’t clear from their website as the other versions listed regions, so I assumed it was for the U.S. eShop.

Preordered on a whim because I watched Max react on his channel, and the OG show was my shit in 5th grade. Really stoked to see how it turns out. Does anyone know how many buttons are in use? 4 or 6?

The same. I held off (my own fault), and I'm a big fan of the Green Ranger v2 version they've introduced lately.


I imagine it'll be DLC at some point along with plenty of other variations. Would be shocked not to see a Dragon Shield Red Ranger at some point.

It’s already got a dlc listing on the eshop

Just saw some footage of this today, never had any interest in Power Rangers whatsoever but it looks like a solid fighting game so I'm in. The simplified controls sound great for me. Would have pre-ordered but I guess I'll have to wait for it to show up on the eShop.

If you type in power rangers on the eshop you see some of the dlc (dragon shield red ranger included).

I noticed I still had the Switch version preorder in my cart on the site. It still let me order despite preorders being closed, I hope it goes through lol. Got it for $15 thanks to a Paypal discount.

Wish we had more characters, but oh well. Going to focus Magna and Kat probably, but depends on how the characters feel of course.

Yeah, no I'm not paying $20 for 9 fighters when the game barely has any content. I guarantee the arcade mode is probably a joke too.

weird, I just tried the same since I had put it in the cart as well and it told me it was "SOLD OUT" during the final checkout step.

It would be neat if one of the DLC characters was the Ryu Ranger with street fighter inspired playstyle.
I always think guest characters are such a fun idea in fighting games.



It would be nice if the Green v2 had the sword of darkness instead of the dragon dagger EDIT: It was pointed out to me that the promo art shows that this is likely the case.

It would be nice if the Green v2 had the sword of darkness instead of the dragon dagger since as far as I know there is not currently a Tommy that has it even though there is already more than one Tommy. But then I guess that would require it to be more than a skin. Maybe it's better suited as an alternate skin for Tyrano Jason, that character uses a sword already.

The Ryu Ranger is cool af but I'd rather we get some more rangers in before bringing guests. I need one ranger from each series!

It me, that guy that still doesn't know who Magna Defender is.
You missed out on Lost Galaxy!

Preorders were only available through the official website and ended early even though the preorders were digital? That's kind of odd.
Excited the game looks good and if I hadn't already bought 3 games this month I totally would jump in for launch day, if only because I used to be such a big Power Rangers fan back in the day.

Outside of Jason, Tommy, and Goldar, I 'know' the others from following the game. I never cared much for Power Rangers. I'm here for the 3v3 action.

I had to look it up myself.

You guys should check out the BOOM comics! They're actually pretty great, and lapsed fans that fell off after Mighty Morphin should feel themselves right at home.

I want to, after I heard about Shattered Grid I got really curious and then I learned about that 1960s or whatever decade it was mini-arc and got even more curious!
