Fans who felt the current roster of nine was lacking in the recently released Power Rangers Battle for the Grid (for Playstation 4, X-Box One, Nintendo Switch, and PC later this summer) will be pleased to note that nWay, the developer of Power Rangers Battle for the Grid, has announced three new characters arriving soon for the game.
Gamers will get to enjoy Mighty Morphin Yellow Ranger Trini in Black Dragon Armor (exclusively seen in the BOOM! Studios Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic book), Udonna the Mystic Force White Ranger, and the Cenozoic Blue Ranger (a color-flipped Power Rangers 2017 Movie Blue Ranger…more on this later). These will be FREE DOWNLOADABLE CONTENT and will not require any extra purchases and are NOT considered part of the Season One pass.
There is currently no release date for these characters, only that they will be arriving “soon”. Our assumption is late April early May in order to spark some more interest in the game around the time another major fighting game hits the market.
The Mighty Morphin Yellow Ranger Trini in Black Dragon Armor was originally seen in the BOOM! Studios Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic book. When Tommy and Billy are transported to Lord Drakkon’s dimension, Rita Repulsa manages to capture the Command Center on Earth and send the remaining Power Rangers in to hiding. Trini allows herself to be captured only to use a piece of the Black Dragon, which was defeated earlier, to tap in to Billy’s Triceratops Power Coin to not only free the Power Rangers powers, but also to connect back with Tommy and Billy. It also allowed Trini to pilot the Black Dragon armor.
Udonna, the Mystic Force White Ranger, was the mentor for the Power Rangers Mystic Force team. While she lost her powers in the beginning of the season, she later reclaims them and uses them with the other Power Rangers to defeat “The Master”, the main villain of the show.
The Cenozoic Blue Ranger is a recolor of the Power Rangers 2017 Movie Blue Ranger. In the movie, Zordon is the original Red Ranger of his team who have been murdered by the Green Ranger, Rita Repulsa. This occurred during the Cenozoic Era of Earth’s history. Therefore, in theory, this will be the Blue Ranger from the movie’s Zordon’s original team of Power Rangers.
Power Rangers Battle for the Grid is available now for Playstation 4, X-Box One, and Nintendo Switch. Fans can power up as nine different characters and play in an Arcade style setting or online against other players. A story mode has been promised for the future and more characters to play will be coming. For more details visit BattleFortheGrid.com.
