Sorry for the two-day delay, the real world sucks sometimes. Anyway, onto business!
Toei has partnered with the South Korean game company Ntreev Soft to produce a new MMO based on the Super Sentai series called Power Rangers Online, which the plan on unveiling by the end of this year.
The game will be based primarily on Mahou Sentai Magiranger, which aired in South Korea in 2006 as Power Rangers Magic Force as Korean dub of the original series (it should be noted that they’ve been airing Super Sentai in Korea under the Power Rangers title since Abaranger aired as Power Ranger Dino Thunder in 2003). It’s expected to be a side-scrolling action RPG, with players having the chance to create special costumes, learn unique combats skills, and fight monsters from the series! The teaser site for the game is already up (click here), and it’s announced plans to launch closed beta testing within the year.
The game is being co-developed by Ntreev, Daewon Media, and Ironnos.
Ntreev has indicated that the series has been well recieved by gamers, and they expect the game to be popular across all audiences. My only question is, why hasn’t this happened yet?! 😉
