Power Rangers fans can finally rejoice, as a new title finds its way to consoles courtesy of developer nWay, responsible for the mobile title “Power Rangers: Legacy Wars”. Despite this, nWay insists this title has been “built from the ground up” to be for consoles, and seems to be fairly forward thinking with how their game will work, promising cross-play between all the platforms the game will be launching on.
The Battle for the Grid website describes the game as follows:
Power Ranger: Battle for the Grid is an easy to learn but hard to master fighting game that delivers a modern take on the Power Rangers franchise. The game features stunning graphics with vivid details and pits new and classic Rangers and villains against each other in team battles. Featuring a streamlined combat system, the game welcomes newcomers to the genre with simplified controls, while maintaining depth and detail for more intense and experienced competitors. Players will be challenged to test their skills online against friends and other players around the world, providing endless replayability. With new content and game modes releasing throughout the year, the game will continuously offer the community new ways to play and compete.
The game is also meant to be a three on three fighter, in the vein of beloved titles like Marvel vs. Capcom and Dragon Ball FighterZ, and promises both a story mode and some form of progression system to keep players interested for months to come. Perhaps most surprising is the game is launching this coming April, and that a digital version of the game will retail for $19.99, and even the Digital Collector’s Edition (offering a season pass and exclusive skins) is only $39.99.
Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid launches on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC this April.
