Yesterday, we got news of two brand new Riders that will appear in Kamen Rider x Kamen Rider Fourze & OOO Movie Wars MEGAMAX. Today, we have news of a few old Riders appearing in the movie, as well as more info on Nadeshiko and Poseidon.
While the focus of the story will be on Fourze and OOO, it has been confirmed that seven Rider from the past will also be appearing in the movie. Namely, the Seven Legendary Kamen Riders Ichigo, Nigo, V3, Riderman, X, Amazon, and Stronger. No word on where they’ll appear in the movie or what role they’ll play in the story.
For Fourze’s part of the movie, the plot will mainly surround a love story between Gentaro and Misaki Nadeshiko, a hish chool girl whose able to transform into Kamen Rider Nadeshiko. She want to fight alongside Fourze, but who exactly is she?…
For OOO’s part, they encounter a mysterious young man named Miharu, who is able to transform into Kamen Rider Poseidon. Like OOO, Poseidon uses three Core Medals, the Shark, Whale, and Wolffish Medals. And from the look of this scan, I’d say that he’s OOO first evil Rider.
Well, at the very least, we’re looking at a movie with the total of 13 Riders (minimum), with what will probably be a very big ending. And yet, no one outside of Japan will be able to see it until next year. Nothing worse that delayed awesomeness.

UPDATE: We have a a bit more detailed background on the two parts of the movie, as well as on the two new Riders.
Fourze’s part of the movie will be the story of Gentaro’s first love. And who is this lady that managed to steal his heart? Why it’s Misaki Nadeshiko, a.k.a. Kamen Rider Nadeshiko. The main focus of the story will be on Nadeshiko’s identity, and on what happens with Gentaro’s first love (some people just went “Aww”, other just said “bleh”).
More detailed images of the suit show the changes that went in to stylize the suit for a more female appearance. The suit has a sailor-style collar connected to solar ribbons, a belt similar to the FourzeDriver, but it only has the two arm slots (so far for Rocket and Radar Switches), they seem to have swapped out the orange in the Fourze outfit for blue, and it’s rather form-fitting, which is an entirely different discussion. And her version of the FourzeDriver doesn’t seem to have the big lever on the side, so how will she henshin or perform a Limit Break? Hopefully, it won’t be some “magigirl”-style transformation, otherwise I’ll have to have a few words with Koichi-san.
And for the OOO part, the story seems to center around the arrival of this new Rider, Kamen Rider Poseidon. A mysterious young man named Miharu changes into Poseidon and challenges Eiji to a duel. Since Eiji has no way of transforming, since all of the original Core Medals were destroyed, Date steps in as Proto-Birth to fight him, but then the picture above happens…
Poseidon is very similarly modelled after OOO, he has a modified version of the OOODriver with three aquatic-themed Core Medals, his head, torso and legs matching the corresponding colors, and with the designs from the Medals on his chest. The designs on the Core Medals are of a Shark, Whale, and Bering Wolffish. This is solely my opinion, but he does remind me in many ways of a Maori warrior, between the theme of the Medals, the look of the designs on the Medals, and the odd-looking staff.
But his appearance begs many questions. How does he have these unique Core Medals? How does he have ANY Core Medals? And how will Eiji be able to defeat him if he can’t become OOO?
