Go Power Rangers! 2017 is looking like a real retro summer with the return of our ‘Power Rangers’ to the big screen. The silver screen reboot of the famous television show comes at a time when everyone is getting in on the retro action. The film is slated to be a Summer release and it brings on superstars like Elizabeth Banks and Bryan Cranston. With the hype in full force for the film it only makes sense that there would be a video game spin off, as well.
The video game is going to be called ‘Power Rangers: Legacy Wars’ and it will be a multiplayer fighting game. Players will get to play as both the hyper popular Power Rangers and their villainous counterparts. Rather than using the old school Rangers as the basis for the fighters in the game they will be pulled directly from the film. People excited about the upcoming movie will have to get their hands on a copy of this game.
‘Legacy Wars’ is being developed by the guys and girls over at nWay. That name might cause some Ranger fans a little bit of pause as the developer hasn’t had a AAA, console title. In fact, nWay has only released games for mobile platforms thus far. Still, nWay will carry with them the hopes of Ranger fans everywhere because it has been awhile since a good video game has been launched for the franchise. Fans of the old school television show should be getting more and more excited as the news breaks.
The ‘Power Rangers’ movie will be releasing on March 24th and the film itself even got another new trailer just a week or so ago. In an era of gritty reboots that focus on the darkness more than levity, the new trailer was a quality dosage of fun. The trailer featured a close up look at the new power suits, the giant robots that the Rangers will be piloting and even a look at one of our new villains. Right now pre-registration is open for the upcoming ‘Power Rangers: Legacy Wars’ so if you are excited for it make sure to get in line. The film spin off hasn’t been reviewed yet so anticipation will have to hold for now!
