Well folks, it looks like just ahead of the upcoming, brand new, dark and gritty re-imagining of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers in movie form, we’ll be getting a brand new, highly colorful, and true to the original beat’em up style video game.
The new game, currently titled, Mighty Morphin Power Ranges: Mega Battle, is set to release this January on both the PS4 and Xbox One systems. Announced via a Facebook post on Bandai’s FB page, the company explains that, “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Mega Battle is a re-imaging of the classic multiplayer beat-em-up. Level up your rangers, team up with friends, summon the Megazord, and fight your way to victory! Coming soon digitally to PS4 and Xbox One.”
So far this game looks great, throwing back to all of the old arcade style beat’em up’s like Double Dragon, TMNT, X-Men, and even The Simpsons arcade games. The idea of cooperative play to level up, use Zords, and eventually great the Megazord is extremely appealing and the throwback, cartoony style of the video game was a smart move.
Personally, I’m looking forward to this a lot more than I am the movie remake, but what do you all think? When was the last time you played a super corny beat’em up style game and why aren’t you playing more of them? Let us know what you think about all of this in the comments section below and be sure to check out the new trailer from Bandai, which is also posted below.Follow Us:
