Following a pretty inspiring official trailer for the new Power Rangers movie, fans can enjoy a tie-in mobile game to coincide with the movie’s release.
In a partnership with nWay, the game studio behind Chronoblade, Lionsgate and Saban; Power Rangers: Legacy Wars is a real-time multiplayer PvP fighting game set to be the first game featuring the Rangers from the new film as well as iconic Rangers and villains spanning the shows 23-year television run. CEO of nWay, Taehoon Kim has high hopes for Legacy Wars saying it will be, “a game of many firsts for the expansive Power Rangers universe,” adding, “with our vast experience in matchmaking player vs player games over networks, we have created the first synchronous multiplayer fighting game allowing Power Rangers fans all over the world to battle against each other in real-time.”
President of Interactive Ventures & Games for Lionsgate, Peter Levin realizes the heart of the franchise saying, “The Power Rangers brand has always been about being a superhero with your friends and we worked with Saban Brands to bring that philosophy into a Power Rangers game for the first time by applying a multi-player mechanic with a mashup of characters that spans decades of Power Rangers storytelling.”
“Power Rangers: Legacy Wars will be an interactive game providing the Power Rangers’ global fan base with an experience unlike any they have seen from the franchise,” said Janet Hsu, CEO, Saban Brands. “With nWay, we are combining the best of the Power Rangers’ 23-year legacy with the reimagined Power Rangers from Lionsgate’s upcoming feature film with Saban Brands.”
Both the Power Rangers film and Power Rangers: Legacy Wars releases March 24, 2017. A new trailer for the movie landed last week showing off series favourite Goldar, along with a few plot beats. With an upcoming movie, it only makes sense that we’re getting a game celebrating Power Rangers.
