A new fighting game is entering the mix as we now have Power Rangers: Battle For The Grid announced for the PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC. Currently, it is slated for April of this year, but we will have to wait and see if nWay Games is able to bring it to us by then. There are pre-orders open for it right now that add in extra Power Rangers and skins if you want to do that. That will be on you as this game seems to be coming out of nowhere and bringing back a franchise that felt like it had moved to a smaller subset of the culture we have here. It has been an extremely long time since I remember the Rangers IP being large enough to necessitate a fighting game. It is coming though.
All of that aside, it does look like Power Rangers: Battle For The Grid will be bringing along a nice look at something we have all been waiting for. That would be cross-play for the platforms mentioned here. All in real-time when we want to fight against them online. This has been something announced as in the works and offered up by developers just recently and now will be a focal point of this game. If anyone can do it, I guess it could be the Power Rangers. Those are words I never thought I would put together since I stopped watching the original show so long ago. Here is to hoping they do it all well.
