Looks great for a smaller budget game. But I wonder what made them add Kat to the base roster before Doggie.
why did i have to be the chosen one?

Twelve minutes of game play footage. Seems like the only Zords you can use for summons (at least currently) are Dino Megazord, Dragonzord, and giant Goldar.

It looks good, but I wish they'd add a separate mode for Zord battles, that'd be so dope.

Also this game definitely takes a few pages from MvC games in terms of gameplay. Combos, assists, hypers, etc.

This might be the ONE Power Rangers game that I would buy.

So apparently some people did a little digging and found a couple more characters that haven't been officially announced yet:

I added them to the roster in the first post - Spoilered, in case anyone wants to keep them a surprise.

So, I've been playing this for the past couple days. Thoughts hidden in case people want to be surprised or something.

Spoiler:
First of all, SKREONK the Mastodon Sentries. I don't have a problem with Goldar, Ranger Slayer, or Lord Drakkon, but for some reason, whenever there's a level with multiple Mastodon Sentries, I'm just stuck there for many, many tries. I hate them so, so much.

Now then, probably the biggest problem with the game thus far: It seems that there are no unlockable characters and we must wait for the DLC to come out. This is inexcusable. I was fine with nine characters to start with, but nine characters period? It's really bad when you play Arcade Mode; you fight every character in the roster roughly five times.

On the plus side, though, the game play is great and the fighting is pretty solid. The character models all look pretty spot on (even down to Gia's badass Gokaiger pose) and their attacks are all reminiscent from the show, as they should be. The Super attacks are all fun, and though the Megazord mechanic is a little wonky, it's still great when you manage to pull it off.

Now, despite the fun of the fighting, the overall game feels kinda... bland? I'm not sure if that's the right word for it, but yeah. The characters are noticeably quiet except for some grunting, the music is fairly generic, they use the same announcer from Legacy Wars (and they didn't even bother using his "You lose!" and "You win!" for some reason), and the menus still boring to look at and not very PR-y (they're not very anything-y, to be honest). As great as the fighting is, I really hope they continue to tweak this game as they have Legacy Wars.

Speaking of the characters being silent... Why is that the case? I mean, the PR cast is happily doing fan films these days. You're telling me nWay couldn't get Jason David Frank, Ciara Hanna, Kerrigan Mahan, etc. to record a few grunts and quick lines for the game? I mean, hell, all they'd have to do for Mastodon Sentry is grab some random person in the studio and have them say some generic soldier lines like "Target engaged!" I mean, I don't need every second of the game voiced, but geez... At least the dialogue on the Goldar and Lord Drakkon levels! How could they have JDF involved with the game and he didn't record one evil laugh for Drakkon's entrance pose?

Something else I do wish they had done was be a little more creative with the alternate colors than just "EVERYONE IS BLACK AND RED." Since this game is so Boom Comics-heavy, I would've loved a silver/Silverback coloring for Goldar.

So yeah. The game is fun overall, but it's in desperate need of some tweaking, new menu designs, some better music, and definitely more characters.

I'm absolutely overjoyed that they add Quantum Ranger! Not to mention that he's voiced by the same actor who played him in the show! So AWESOME!

I guess I'll list a few characters I'd like to see show up as DLC in the future.

Astronema (Power Rangers in Space)
red lost galaxy ranger (Power Rangers Lost Galaxy)
red time force ranger (Power Rangers Time Force)
white dino thunder ranger (Power Rangers Dino Thunder)
RPM black ranger (Power Rangers RPM)
Tanaya 7 (Power Rangers RPM)

So, you can’t undo the past, but you can choose your own future, and if you want to be strong... you have to fight for it and find out in your life what’s worth fighting for.

The lack of Dino thunder representation is pretty sad
Legit, every KoTM hater I have ever seen on social media or interacted with are all the same. They are either these young kids to middle aged adults so detached from anything beyond the Japanese films that they can't enjoy anything that doesn't begin with one of the Toho logos. They're the type that would of had no issues with KoTM if it was a Japanese-made production and think films like Godzilla vs. Monster Zero are the pinnacle of human drama.
