Hasbro revealed today that a new game set in the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers universe is will be released in 2019. Power Rangers: Battle For The Grid is fighting game due out in April 2019 for PS4, Xbox One, and Switch. The game is due out on PC at a later date.

Battle For The Grid will feature rangers and villains "past and present" from the popular show. There will be cross-play on Xbox One, Switch, and PC.

Looks like it's based on the mobile game and they made it a proper fighter. Looks like it could be fun.

Mmm, I'm not convinced. 

Maybe if I see more gameplay where both combatants are creating a chorus of "Ee-yah! Hiyah! Ee-yah!"

Yeah, I'm gonna a wait till I see more as well! I tried the mobile game, and while I feel like it's a pretty good game, I'm not big on it cuz of the controls... :( Touch controls and I don't get along too well! XD

I really hope it will have a decent amount of content as well... :)

The legendary Justin Wong is helping out with this game, which is a big deal of news for any Fighting game.

If I was still into Power Rangers, this would probably be the coolest thing since sliced bread. But I'm not, and this isn't. That said, looks kinda fun, fighting games outside of Smash really aren't my jam, but I played some kind of Power Rangers mobile game a while back that I enjoyed. I dunno, haven't followed the series since Megaforce, although from what I hear I haven't missed much.

If the mobile game was Legacy Wars then, that is what this is based on. 

Also if you ever did wanna catch up with PR stuff, i'd say watch Linkara's History of Power Rangers stuff, I think he's past Megaforce now on those (and he kind of loathed Megaforce).

Funny enough I actually watched Linkara's HOPR but never the main series. I think the only PR i finished is RPM back then lol. Finished a couple of Sentais though

 

On an unrelated note i just realized the guy who played in a movie i watched near the end of last year is actually Dino Charge Blue. Him not having that long caveman hair throws me out of loop

 

 

The real question of this game is how many Tommy is there going to be
