Power Rangers: Legacy Wars Update Launches This Week
Power Rangers: Legacy Wars is the mobile fighting game adaptation of the Power Rangers television show and feature film. This week, a new update for the game is hitting the Apple and Google Play stores.
Developer nWay and comic book publisher BOOM! Studios have partnered to introduce two new characters to the game alongside other updates and additions. The characters -- Lord Drakkon and Black Dragon -- are from alternate universes in the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comics, and this is their first video game appearance.
As Tommy Oliver's evil counterpart, Lord Drakkon rules Earth as a dystopia, while Black Dragon is a Zord set on destroying Tommy Oliver. Both studios are excited about introducing these villains to players of Power Rangers: Legacy Wars. Filip Sablik, BOOM! president of Publishing and Marketing said:
"As an avid player of this amazing game, I couldn't be more thrilled to be partnering with the team at nWay and our friends at Saban Brands and Lionsgate to unleash these two villains!"
Other notable update content includes:
- Challenge Mode: Group up and win as many battles as possible to gain rewards
- Talents System: New passive upgrades boost damage and attributes
