Get ready to shout “It’s Morphin Time” repeatedly with the upcoming game Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid. It’s been nearly 26 years since the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers first appeared on TV and now they are returning to consoles this Spring.
Hasbro is partnering with game studio nWay to develop the game:
“Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid is an easy to learn but hard to master fighting game that delivers a modern take on the Power Rangers franchise. The game features stunning graphics with vivid details and pits new and classic Rangers and villains against each other in team battles. Featuring a streamlined combat system, the game welcomes newcomers to the genre with simplified controls, while maintaining depth and detail for more intense and experienced competitors. Players will be challenged to test their skills online against friends and other players around the world, providing endless replayability. With new content and game modes releasing throughout the year, the game will continuously offer the community new ways to play and compete.”
Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid is a brand new fighting game for consoles. The combat system is built from the ground up and is not taken from the mobile game.

25 years after the release of the team’s first game on SNES, the Power Rangers will be coming to PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch this year. The team released much more information on the game’s website.
“…the developer and publisher behind Power Rangers: Legacy Wars, the hit multiplayer mobile game with over 45 million downloads, is partnering with Hasbro and global content leader Lionsgate to announce Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid. The new cross-platform fighting game will be available as a digital download for $19.99 first on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch in April 2019, and then as a PC release later in the year.”
The cool thing about the fighting game will be the ability to cross-play across each system. Players will be able to fight against other people no matter which system they own.
Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid will be available digitally in April for Xbox One, PS4, and the Nintendo Switch. The game is expected to have a PC release sometime later this year.
