The Power Rangers franchise has been around for a long time, and it has certainly seen a number of rises and falls in popularity over its lifespan — something that one would no doubt expect from a media entity spanning several decades. That said, the franchise is currently at a point of being back in the public eye, and a new trailer for Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid looks to keep excitement around the Rangers high.

In the trailer, fans get a peak at some of the upcoming fighter’s action, character models, and environments. As seen in the video, Battle for the Grid is in the vein of the Marvel Vs. Capcom series, pitting teams of three against one another.

The title has been described as a full-fledged fighting game that skillfully balances accessibility with depth. This suggests that anyone that is interested will be able to pickup Battle for the Grid without feeling intimidated by the skill and difficulty curves that often accompany fighting games.

Along with this attempt at gameplay accessibility, nWay is also looking to offers longtime fans and newcomers alike an entry point to the title. That is, players will be able to choose their fighters from both new and old Rangers, and the game will feature classic and brand new villains as well.

Battle for the Grid will feature online multiplayer, letting fans team up to face off against challengers from around the globe. This co-operative play will be possible regardless of the platform players are on, due to the game’s support of cross-play. That said, it remains to be seen if Sony will play nice, allowing cross-play with PlayStation 4, or if the company will continue being a loner.

nWay’s reputation with the Power Rangers franchise means that fans should rest easy knowing that their beloved Rangers are in good hands. Legacy Wars, the mobile predecessor to Battle for the Grid, received very good reviews, and we even considered it one of the best mobile games of 2017.

Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid will release simultaneously on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One this spring, and it will come to PC later in 2019. The standard edition will be $19.99, and there is also a special Digital Collector’s Edition available.

This special edition includes the full game download, the Season One pass, which includes new characters and a skin, and exclusive Lord Drakkon Evo II and Kimberly Hart character skins. Undoubtedly, players that are excited about the upcoming fighter will want to consider this as an option.
