Power Rangers-Inspired RPG Launching Soon On PS4/Xbox One, But PS Vita Version Canceled
Poor old Vita.
Chroma Squad, the RPG heavily inspired by Power Rangers, will launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in May 2017, publisher Bandai Namco has announced.
The previously-announced PlayStation Vita version has been canceled, however, while there is no word on the PlayStation 3 version we reported on last year.
Chroma Squad sees players take control of a team comprised of five stunt actors who have quit their day jobs to create their own Power Rangers-esque television show. You’ll have to purchase and upgrade equipment, craft weapons, and build giant mechs to engage in battles against monsters–all for the goal of achieving high TV viewer ratings.
The game, which is developed by Brazilian studio Behold, previously launched on PC in April 2015 following a successful Kickstarter campaign. It will cost $15 to download, with international pricing currently unknown.
In official Power Rangers news, the new movie adaptation, starring Dacre Montgomery, Naomi Scott, and Bryan Cranston, recently received a new trailer. The film is produced by Lionsgate, the film company behind big-name franchises such as The Hunger Games and John Wick, among others.
A multiplayer fighting game called Power Rangers: Legacy Wars is coming out alongside the movie for mobile devices in March. Another game, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Mega Battle, launched in January for PS4, Xbox One, and PC with basically no fanfare.
