Mighty Morphin Power Rangers was the beginning of a franchise in the US that went on to be a phenomenon. Yes, it was basically the American version of Super Sentai, but, the show has put on its own twist on things over the years. With each new generation comes new fans, and a truth to the fact that “The Power Will Live On Forever”. And now we get to go back in time to play as the original Rangers in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Mega Battle.
So, the game itself is a modern re-imaging of the classic multiplayer beat-em-up genre. Which, conveniently, was popular in the 90’s when the show was on. In it, you can level up your rangers, team up with friends, summon the Megazord, and ﬁght your way through levels stylized after classic Mighty Morphin Power Rangers episodes. Thus making sure that fans who know the material know exactly who they’re within, and who they’re battling. Details are important in a game like this.
Through the battle system, you’ll use a combination of light, heavy, weapon and projectile attacks. Players will also be able to integrate weapon strikes into different combo strings. Players can level-up and unlock new moves, attacks and weapons, which means you can build the team the way YOU want. And like we said before, each level is based on a classic episode from the TV series. The levels are ﬁlled with familiar dialogue, background details, cut scenes, and enemies pulled straight from the ﬁrst two seasons of the show. So expect to see Angel Grove, the Command Center, and much, much more.
So, are you ready? Because it’s MORPHIN TIME! With Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Mega Battle, available now on Xbox One.
