The Power Rangers Fighting Game Adds Three New Rangers And A Story Mode

The Power Rangers Fighting Game Adds Three New Rangers And A Story Mode

Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid is a solid little fighting game in desperate need of strong single-player content and more mighty morphin’ combatants . Developer nWay attends to those needs today in a batch of free downloadable content featuring three new fighters, a full-fledged story mode, voice-overs from series cast members, and more.

Battle for the Grid’s biggest problem during last...

What Was The First Game You Finished?

What Was The First Game You Finished?

Inspired by a recent viral Tweet by Andy Bush, I want to know what games Kotaku readers finished first. Was it a massive RPG? A small platformer? An action game? A 90s era shooter?

The first game I ever beat was Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie on the Sega Genesis. It was a beat’em up where you controlled the Power Rangers and fought waves of enemies. You also occasionally got to...

Power Rangers Cosplay Is Here To Crush Cities

Power Rangers Cosplay Is Here To Crush Cities

The obvious thing to do when cosplaying something from Power Rangers would be one of the lycra-clad Rangers themselves, but nope, Jason Aulicino had bigger ideas.

This is his Dragonzord outfit, and it looks like it just walked right off the set after a busy day fighting dudes in rubber suits.

The New Power Rangers Fighting Game Could Use A Lot More Power Rangers 

The New Power Rangers Fighting Game Could Use A Lot More Power Rangers 

The colorful, spandex-clad martial artists of Power Rangers are the perfect subject for a basic but enjoyable three-on-three fighting game like Battle for the Grid. But with 26 seasons of television featuring more than 140 different heroes, the starting roster should at least be in the double digits, and not nine.

I was super excited whenPower Rangers: Battle for the Grid was announced for the...

Finding Inspiration In Popples And Power Rangers

Finding Inspiration In Popples And Power Rangers

Playing around with some of the latest Power Ranger Dino Charge toys and transformable plushies from Saban’s Popples reboot has inspired me to do two things—one noble, and one mildly insane.

A table filled with toys from these two very different lines united under Saban Brands says a lot about the world we live in now and the one we lived in back in say 1986, when Hallmark American...

In Japan, There's a Superhero Who...Plants Rice

In Japan, There's a Superhero Who...Plants Rice

Meet Chojin Neiger. Unlike other heroes who spend their time battling foes, Neiger is often found farming, not fighting.

Japan is filled with cute, local characters. But Chojin Neiger, who takes his look from Power Rangers style heroes, is a bit different! He protects Akita Prefecture, working in the rice paddies. When he’s not doing that, he’s meeting with kids and doing his part to promote...

Power Rangers Cosplay Ends In Marriage Proposal

<i>Power Rangers</i> Cosplay Ends In Marriage Proposal

Cosplayers James Reese and Anthony Grillo were doing their thing the other day, shooting a very slick video with KevinTheDirector while dressed as Power Rangers, when Anthony had to go and ruin all those heroic poses by dropping to one knee and proposing.

The proposal comes later in the vid, which is worth watching through not just for the life-changing personal circumstances, but for how many...

A Strategy Game Where You're Basically The Power Rangers

A Strategy Game Where You're Basically The Power Rangers

Should I care about Chroma Squad? If you’re struck by devastating waves of nostalgia every time you think about Power Rangers, Japanese super sentai series, or, er, Backstreet Boys lyrics, then yes. Definitely yes.

What’s it about? It’s a Power Rangers (sans the license) strategy game, but that’s not all it is. See, there’s this whole meta layer to it. You’re actually managing a fledgling TV...

Square Enix Is Fixing <i>FFXV</i> Costumes Because Of The <i>Power Rangers</i>

During Square Enix’s big Final Fantasy anniversary event, the Tokyo-based game maker revealed “muteki suits” (invincible suits) as an upcoming free Final Fantasy XV download. If you thought the outfits (above) looked like Power Ranger costumes, you were not alone.

The People Behind Power Rangers Are Trying To Kill That Gritty Reboot [Update]

The People Behind Power Rangers Are Trying To Kill That Gritty Reboot [Update]

Yesterday, a fan-made Power Rangers reboot released on video hosting site Vimeo. The video, which showcased a more dark take on Power Rangers, exploded—tons of people seemed to like it. But not the people who actually make Power Rangers.

Shortly after being up on Vimeo, the Power Rangers film got taken down. Thankfully, people are still able to watch the film on YouTube—but the circumstances...

Power Rangers Get a Mighty Gritty Reboot

<i>Power Rangers</i> Get a Mighty Gritty Reboot

Massive intergalactic warfare. Tons of cussin'. Lethal force up the wazoo. Threesomes. Yup, you've probably never seen Power Rangers look like this.

This short film directed by Joseph Kahn and produced by Adi Shankar (Dredd) re-imagines the Saturday-morning staple as something a lot closer to Mortal Kombat. Casting James Van Der Beek as a traitorous former comrade and Katie Sackhoff...

The New <i>Power Rangers</i> Game Sure Looks Like It's From The '90s

Fans of the rainbow rangers have been eagerly awaiting the reveal of Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers: Mega Battle since the name was leaked earlier this year. Well here it is, and it’s exactly the sort of game we’d have been playing when the show first launched.

Arriving digitally for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in January, MMPR:MB (phew) is an old school beat-em up in the same vein as...

The New Power Rangers Game Isn't Good

The New <i>Power Rangers</i> Game Isn't Good

Can we just get a Power Rangers Musou already and stop releasing nonsense like Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Mega Battle?

My initial reaction to the October announcement of the 2D brawler from Bandai Namco and developer Bamtang was “This looks like garbage,” but not having played the game I gave it the benefit of the doubt . I should have stuck with my gut.

Released last week as a...

You Are Never Too Old For Cosplay 

You Are Never Too Old For Cosplay 

Fifty year-old Brazilian cosplayer Solange tells website UOL that she wishes more people her age had the courage to give cosplay a try.

Solange got into cosplay three years ago. She was already attending events with her 19-year-old cosplaying daughter. After a friend challenged her to give it a whirl, Solange made her cosplay debut under the name “Tia sol” or “Aunty Sun.”

Since then, Tia sol...

Please, Make A New Power Rangers Movie Like This

Please, Make A New Power Rangers Movie Like This

Yeah, a big part of the appeal of Power Rangers (and Super Sentai) is how damn corny everything is, but let's imagine for a second that someone wanted to make a modern Power Rangers movie. And wanted to ditch corny for more of a Godzilla vibe.

It'd look like this, and this looks badass. It's by artist Eddie Del Rio, who has done a ton of work in video games , but who also worked on the...
