[UPDATE: The official teaser trailer for Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid has now been released to confirm the game, and can be seen right here. The original story continues below.]
There’s no doubt that myriad Power Rangers fans have been clamoring for quite some time for a video game featuring the colorfully-clad superheroes to make its way onto current generation platforms. Now, it looks like the wait for such a title might not be too much longer, for it seems as if a trailer for a Power Rangers fighting game has now leaked online ahead of its sanctioned release to the public.
Dubbed Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid, the fighting game seems to be set for launch at some point in April 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One, and it will feature Rangers from multiple timelines within the franchise. While the leaked footage focuses on the original Green Ranger and Red Ranger from the Mighty Morphin‘ series doing battle against one another, the Yellow Ranger from the Megaforce series also makes a brief cameo on-screen for what what appears to be an assist attack.
While only the aforementioned Green, Red, and Yellow Rangers are known characters thus far, it’s highly likely that more of the base roster will go on to be unveiled once Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid is officially announced. Should the title adopt a content distribution model akin to contemporary fighting games such as Dragon Ball FighterZ, Injustice 2, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, then it would also reveal DLC packs containing post-launch characters, too.
Taking everything here into account, it will be interesting to see what fighting game aficionados make of the leaked trailer for Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid, and when the companies behind the title’s development–Hasbro, Lionsgate, and nWay–will publicly announce the release. After all, there’s clearly a demand for such a game to make its way into the marketplace, especially with some fans having taken it upon themselves to create their own wares related to the franchise, as one player recently made a Soulcalibur 6 mod adding the White Ranger into the game.
Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid has yet to be officially announced, but according to the above trailer, it’s coming in April 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One.
