Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Mega Battle

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Mega Battle

Well, it’s the closest thing I’ll get to a Super Sentai game without importing, so here it is! Bandai Namco is releasing Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Mega Battle! What’s that? It’s a side-scrolling beat ’em up in the vein of the games of my youth! The big thing people are kvetching about is how simple and childish the graphics look. And because of that, it’s not worth a full game price. Those people are idiots. They want it to look like this to appeal to a younger audience as far as I’m concerned. The voices sound as close to the authentic ones as they can possibly get, it’s a four player side scroller that also has the giant monster battles when Rita Repulsa summons her giant monsters. I wonder how that’s going to work! Will one player control the Dino Megazord? Will they all work together? God, I’m so curious. It seems to go at least as far as Lord Zedd, but I’d want it to go even farther personally. Will it have other teams, like Dino Thunder, Turbo, etc? Now, I stopped watching the Power Rangers when I found the Japanese Super Sentai franchise, but I still have that powerful nostalgia craving. I come back every so often and look at the new show and see how it fares to its older brother over in Japan. But that’s another rant for another day!  It’s the Power Rangers game I always wanted, because the SNES beat ’em up was awful. All the characters looked buff as fuck and boring as Hell. This on the other hand, feels authentic. Sure, the art is a bit more on the childish side, we don’t always need 100% realism.  Don’t believe me that you need it? Here’s the trailer! #bringbacksidescrollers #dibsongreenranger

    There have been many times I have lamented that fact that we’ve moved away from side-scrolling beat-em-up games. It’s simple and primal and enjoyable. No need to complicate things with needless, and frankly, disliked QTE nonsense..
