Today, we have some pics of Fourze from the upcoming series, and we have a bit of real (not rumored) story for the series. Starting with the pics:
We have a real look at his logo, and we get to see some very good shots of him as well.
And now onto the story!
So far, this is what we’ve been able to get from Uchuusen magazine translations (the magazine that covered the Fourze story first):
“The High School Rider who is challenging the Universe is born!!”
Kamen Rider Fourze, as a show, is actually an experiment with two less-than-familiar themes for Kamen Rider, outer space and high school drama. Kisiragi Gentaro, a new transfer student to the Amanogawa Academy, says “I will become friends with everybody!” on his first day at the new school, and starts the “Kamen Rider club”. That’s how he met Kansei Kengo, who originally had the FourzeDriver. Kengo gives the FourzeDriver to Gentaro, forever changing Gentaro’s life.
The FourzeDriver uses four “Astro Switches” that affect his arms and legs, the first one being the rocket. No confirmation on the others yet.
Interestingly enough, Kamen Rider Fourze also celebrates the 50th Anniversary of Yuri Gagarin’s first flight into space. For those of you who don’t know enough about history to know who that is, 1) that’s just sad, and 2) Yuri Gagarin was a Russian cosmonaut who, in 1961, became the first person to go into space. That’s why Fourze has an outer space theme. They don’t want you to just see Fourze as another Kamen Rider, they want you to see him through the same lense as you would see Yuri Gagarin, as the first Kamen Rider in Space.
That’s all for now, if I come across anything else, I’ll let you know. 3, 2, 1, Ignition!

Anyone else feel like they’re being recruited into the Kamen Rider Space Agency?
