This game makes me feel like a kid again. I haven't watched any PR since the original series, but now I'm hyped again by all the fancy spandex outfits these dudes are wearing.

Please no more MMPR (or MMPR inspired like Mastodon sentry). There's so much more to Power Rangers.
The game is looking good, but for the love of God, no more MMPR characters...
I get where you guys are coming from, but the game is literally called "Battle for the Grid" and is definitely based on the MMPR comic storyline where Lord Drakkon shatters the grid and causes rifts in time and space that allows Rangers from all time periods to mingle and fight.



I love a lot of non-MMPR stuff, but it was the MMPR comic-line that really opened the doors for this with the last few years. Guarantee you they will have far more than MMPR characters released for the game. The mobile version ballooned to a massive roster.

Didn't know this was a tag game...

Kinda sours me on it, tbh. They definitely need to get Latham Gaines as Mesogog in this joint if I'm to put my money on it now.

EDIT: Just saw the Green Ranger's victory animation. Nah, guys, you gotta REDO THAT. There is plenty of source material to choose from to make that better.

Sure, but they have enough as it is. There’s only what, 15 characters to start with? The series is 25 years old! I can understand it having the most, but the current revealed MMPR reps are seriously enough.
I agree I really want some other teams. Zeo reps, Dino Thunder reps for sure. I guess that will be DLC.

Whoa, didn’t realize this is going to be $20. I remembered it not being full price, but I didn’t remember it being that cheap.

Any word on a story mode for this? Also, I take it that the comics are actually pretty good and worth reading?

So, we got push blocks, chip deaths, alpha counters (?), assist switches (?), aerial unblockable anti airs and a LMHS control scheme, from what I've seen.

i posted a link in the other thread earlier today about the story mode. i think it said the comic people are handling the story. Should be pretty good hopefully

Aww no physical version it seems? $20 for this is waaay cheaper than I thought it was gonna be so I hope this does well for them if it turns out great.

Woah. Wait. I’m totally digging those comic designs. Is this a legit good comic and where can I read it if so?

This is a day-one buy for me. I assumed it would be, but after seeing the gameplay in today's stream, I'm definitely all-in and excited.

I'm not a big Power Rangers guy, but one of my buddies is and he absolutely loves the comic series these new reveals are pulled from.

This got me hyped. To be fair, outside of MMPR I'm not familiar with the other generations of Rangers, but as an Action figure collector I love me some Power Rangers and have me characters I am not familiar with at all but they look awesome. I need this.

I will just quietly recommend you check out Time Force, SPD, and RPM on Netflix if you can... They had some very solid seasons that I initially missed out on.

I've read the comic, it's good shit. But unless the story mode is really extensive, I'd rather a more diverse mix of characters than "adhering to the comic". Especially when there's no real guarantee that we'll get another game.

I need to read these goddamn comics.
It's FAR better than it has ANY right to be. It's kind of that "grown up" Power Rangers many of us wanted that doesn't go TOO dark, but has a sense of stakes, maturity, and characterization the original series only barely touched. The artists they get are great too.

I have no knowledge about Power Rangers, but if this is actually two copies of the game, I'm in for halfsies with someone.
Really odd phrasing.

Do it. Best comics I've read in forever.

This game is looking good, looks like a steal at $20. Low entry point probably means a ton of DLC coming.
Are there plans to add any DLC to the game? If so, what kind of content will be available?
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.

Yo this actually looks good and the devs are FGC dudes so you can bug em on twitter if your fave doesn't get in.

This looks so sick. I want to pre-order on Steam but they won't let me. May opt for the Switch version.

If it has anywhere near the roster planned that Legacy Wars uses then yeah this roster would be huge. I'm so damned excited for how good what they've shown us so far looks in matches. Here's hoping this turns into what you theorized...20 base game TONS of DLC roster. Ever expanding platform.

They gotta put the RPM people in here by the way, they're one of the few groups that have explicitly defined unique powers.

Also they can do grind combos

This is looking pretty good. I wanted to buy it but I needed to see it in action. I'm liking what I see a LOT.

Damn, too bad I missed this, as I'll have to catch the archive.

But hearing Goldar, Ranger Slayer and one of the Sentries is in already makes me happy. Rito and Doggie Kruger are all I need to have my Day 1 team with Goldar.
