Announced today by nWay, Hasbro, and Lionsgate following a leak, Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid will be an accessible fighting game releasing for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC sometime this April.
Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid features Power Rangers and villains new and old, which is fitting considering it currently the 25th anniversary of the franchise. The game is fairly cheap at $19.99, which definitely makes it one of the more appealing budget-fighting games on the horizon.
As Power Rangers is enjoyed by a wide variety of people young and old, the developers are attempting to make Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid more accessible. The game will not feature any special moves that require quarter-circle motions, making it more approachable. Still, nWay believes that depth may be there on a competitive level as more advance players fiddle with the game’s mechanics and learn the proper timing for every move at each character’s disposal.
To help keep player counts up, Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid will actually feature cross-play between the PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch versions. The game will actually also feature cross-progression, so the progress made in in one of those three versions will be carried over no matter which console you are playing on.
Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid is already available for pre-order the games official website for all systems except PS4. Pre-ordering the game before launch will net you a Green Ranger V2 character skin as well as a digital art book. A $39.99 deluxe edition of the game is also available and includes Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid’sfirst Season Pass, a Lord Drakkon Evo II skin, and a Mighty Morphin Power Ranger Rangers Pink Ranger skin.
