Street Fighter meets Saturday morning as Power Rangers gets a fighting game

Power Rangers

The Power Rangers brand has been around for decades, and there have been quite a few video game adaptations over the years. Cross-play between PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch has been confirmed, but as can be more or less expected at this point, there's no word on Sony's PS4.

A new Power Rangers game is coming in April, folks, and its first trailer was released earlier today.


More information has been revealed for Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid, which was unveiled yesterday following the appearance of a leaked trailer online. There will also be a Digital Collector's Edition, which will entitle you to all of the Season Pass content, a Lord Drakkon V2 skin, and a Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Pink Ranger skin. Will you be getting it when it releases later in 2019? The game is available for pre-order now at www.battleforthegrid.com with a price tag of $19.99. Since it's available across all platforms, any players on any consoles will be selected from the same player pool and will be able to compete each other in real-time. Described as an "easy to learn but hard to master fighting game", it's meant to put a fresh, modern spin on the "Power Rangers" franchise. The fighter is similar to others in the genre, only you're beating the shit out of other Power Rangers and their enemies. Even when players change their platform, their mission progress they have worked to achieve will still be available to them, allowing for cross-progression and true seamless gameplay no matter where they play.

"The Power Rangers have proven to be an enduring global phenomenon among audiences of all ages", said Daniel Engelhardt, Senior Vice President of Interactive Ventures & Games at Lionsgate.
