Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid...waitaminute...


I will be the first to admit that I'm not a gamer. Video game production and consumption has become a toxic wasteland of garbage and drama that I tend to steer clear of. I could go on and on about how out of the loop I am, but I think it's fair to say that you get the point. Something has finally entered my peripheral that made me take notice of a recent video game...and it's announcement certainly gave me a chuckle.

Like many of you, I caught a glimpse of the next attempt at a Power Rangers fighting game. I loved the Fighting Edition game on Super Nintendo, so this has all the makings of expanding wildly upon that. Granted, we've only seen a little bit of it so far and really don't know much about it other than it's April 2019 release date and that it is being produced by Nway Games in conjunction with Hasbro and Lionsgate.

...and Bandai if the teaser is anything to believe...

Bubbles and imperfections...?

...weird shade of green with lousy paint application...?

...could it be!?!?!

Obviously there is no way of confirming this, but their selection of helmets is somewhat nebulous when you think about it. Anyone can get their hands on these flawed, yet 1/1 scale replica helmets that Bandai released recently. The use of the helmets certainly jazzed up what could have been an otherwise boring gameplay ad with JDF's endorsement. It all seems like much too much of a coincidence if you ask me...

That was literally my first impression when I saw this teaser. Those have to be Bandai's Legacy helmets. I could be wrong...but I seriously doubt it.

My second impression was that maybe I should start stepping on other people's feet as I punch them.

This all looks...unnatural.

My third impression is...maybe it's time I finally open my PS4 and give this game a shot. It could be fun! Hoping for the best on this one.

What do you think? Are those Bandai Legacy helmets? Will this game be any good?

See ya!
