Sixth Rangers included in Ranger Cross game: Sorry, no Goranger sixth member. :P

Hey, some new screen shots have been added to the official website for the upcoming game Super Sentai Battle: Ranger Cross that feature the Sixth Rangers from three of the featured teams. Check them out below:

Here, we have two shots of Goseiger‘s GoseiKnight, definitely wouldn’t want to be on the receiving end of that attack. Am I mistaken, or his blade in that attack the wrong color?

And here we have ShinkenGold with his finishing move. Note the Shinkenger-style decorations in the background.

And finally, we have Go-Onger‘s Go-On Wings. I guess they count as a single Ranger? ūüėõ

So far, there’s been no confirmation on whether or not Go-KaiSilver will also be in the game. Of course, with all these other past Sixth Rangers included in the game, why wouldn’t he be? And no, there won’t be a Sixth Ranger from Goranger included, for very obvious reasons.

Super Sentai Battle: Ranger Cross will be released on September 8th (wait, that’s tomorrow! And it’s already the 8th in Japan!) for 5800 yen, for the Nintendo Wii.

Go-Kaiger Ep.19 Pics: Go-KaiDouble!

Alright, here are some pics from the most recent episode of Go-Kaiger, hope you enjoy them.

Here, Gai is “syncing up” with the treasure chest. I guess this is how they’re able to get the different RangerKeys from their belt buckles.

Doesn’t he just look like a kid¬†on Christmas morning?

“Which one should I go with?”

They’re not talking here, just miming, but then this happens…

Well, Koichi Sakamoto did say that he wanted to keep working on Kamen Rider W, so now we have Go-KaiDouble! (To be clear, I’m the only one calling him that)

And later…

Here, he’s asking for help from all 15 Sixth Senshi.

Go-KaiSilver Gold Mode!

And here are some preview pics for episode 20:

And here are some pics from Toei’s website:

     

That’s all for now, details on all of this to come soon. I haven’t seen the episode yet, but I’m really looking forward to it now.

Go-Kaiger Rumors and Confirmations: Much ‘ado about Go-Onger.

In the Super Sentai 199 movie, the Go-Kaigers received 11 Sentai Grand Powers, including the powers from Go-Onger. Well, supposedly, at the Tokyo Toy show, a couple of people were able to see the toy version of the grand power in question.

Before I say anything further, I just want to say that this is just a rumor, and there is a chance that it could prove to be false.

Supposedly. this Grand Power from Go-Onger¬†turns out to be a new Legend Machine, a red race car modeled after Speedor, except that it doesn’t have any eyes, so technically it’s not an Engine. And the guy at the booth explained that it forms a new robot when combined with both Go-KaiOh¬†and Go-JyuJin.

They also had Go-OnGold’s¬†RangerKey and some Go-On Wings toys there with pirate markings on them, including two Engine Souls with pirate markings and the number 13 written on them.

That’s it for that rumor, now onto some confirmed news.

It has been confirmed the pop group G3 Princess will be reuniting the Go-Kaiger summer movie, Kaizoku Sentai Go-Kaiger THE MOVIE: The Flying Ghost Ship. The group was created for a single-episode appearance in Go-Onger. This confirmation came from Otonafami Magazine.

It was originally rumored that there would be an all-female sentai group appearing in a future episode of Go-Kaiger, and both Sugimoto Yumi and Oikawa Nao hinted to this in their own personal blogs in May. As of yet, their roles in the movie are unknown.

The idol group was originally formed for an episode of Go-Onger, and they released the single “G3 Princess Rap”, one of many variations of the Go-Onger ending theme.

Kaizoku Sentai Go-Kaiger THE MOVIE: The Flying Ghost Ship will premiere August 6th.

Go-Kaiger Rumor: G3 Princess Reunion?!

Okay, normally I don’t cover rumors, but this one has really been making it’s way around, and a lot of people are very excited about it, so I figured that it was only right that I cover it too.

Keep in mind that this is only a rumor, so don’t blame me if it doesn’t turn out to be true.

Supposedly, sometime this summer there will be an episode that has an all-female¬†Sentai line-up.¬†And currently it’s believed that Sugimoto Yumi, who played Suto Miu/Go-OnSilver¬†will be staring in it. In fact, on her blog, she wrote that she did some filming the other day. And it also seems the Oikawa Nao, who played Kegareshia in Go-Onger, was filming something the same day, with people she had worked with in the past, at least according to her blog. Now, that doesn’t mean they might have been filming together, but it could be a strong indication that this rumor is true. And if so, does that mean that there is going to be a G3 Princess Reunion? And if so, will Luka and Ahim be in on the act too? Who knows, we’ll just have to wait and see. In the mean time, this new shadowed scan of Go-KaiSilver also popped up recently, so that means we’ll definitely be seeing him sometime in the next few weeks. Check it out:

I think it might be some kind of finisher, but I can’t say for sure. Tune in to find out!

Go-KaiSilver Debut: Meet the newest member of the crew.

The sixth senshi for Go-Kaiger¬†has been confirmed (sorry I’m a day late, I got trapped in the Tokuverse, I’ll tell you later). This sixth senshi will be Go-kaiSilver. Here are some pics:

 

Go-KaiSilver will basically be able to change into any of the past major sixth rangers. At the moment, these include (in sequential order) Dragon Ranger, Kiba Ranger, King Ranger, MegaSilver, TimeFire, GaoSilver, Shurikenger, AbareKiller, DekaBreak, MagiShine, BoukenSilver, Go-onGold and Go-onSilver, ShinkenGold, and GoseiKnight. He can change into any of these past senshi using his Go-KaiCellular, a device very similar to the Mobirates, but looks and works differently. Pic here:

When Go-KaiSilver changes, he places a variation of his RangerKey into the Go-KaiCellular, pushes the Go-KaiSilver icon on the number pad, and hit s button on top of the device, where an anchor-shaped scanner reads the figure and changes him into Go-KaiSilver. The device also comes with an anchor shaped key that inserted into the bottom that allows him to change into Go-KaiSilver Gold Form.

 

While no one really knows if this second form will give him any extra abilities, it does look cool. In gold form, he will have special armor that includes a chest plate decorated with the helmets of the previous sixth senshi he can change into, and his helmet design changes as well. You can almost make out the kanji for gold in the visor design.

So, first impressions. In his standard silver form, his appearance is very reminiscent¬†of BoukenSilver, and not just because their both silver, either. Because all of the Go-Kaiger¬†have gold inlay decorating their costumes, his¬†costume¬†doesn’t seem that different from the others. The only real difference seems to be in the design of the helmet, the cuffs, and the collar and seams of the “jacket”. Not to mention the fact that his visor is a gold color instead of the standard black. In his special gold form, his appearance¬†is like a cross between Kamen¬†Rider Decade’s Complete Form and Zuban from Boukenger. A lot of people are surprised¬†to see this extra form, but I think it’s fitting. Between these two forms, his appearance¬†covers the two main types of sixth senshi: the kind that have a slightly altered outfit, and the kind that have an armored, highly decorated¬†outfit. Between the differences in his outfit and the anchor motif, this makes me wonder whether this is supposed to be a pirate character or not. I’m almost getting a sailor vibe from him.

A¬†number of people have voiced questions and complaints over¬†the choices of the sixth senshi. The main ones are that Mask X-1, who is the first official sixth senshi despite a one episode appearence,¬†wasn’t included, neither was Bull Black or DekaMaster. And some people think that GoseiKnight shouldn’t have been included because he technically isn’t a normal senshi, although I think he should be, as much time as he’s spent fighting with the Goseiger, and the fact that he has a name that actually has a Goseiger title, and not some off-the-wall name. Plus, there are a host of other senshi that weren’t included as sixth senshi,¬†and a number of non-sentai and non-senshi helpers that haven’t even been acknowledged, so there’s a very, VERY¬†slight chance that there could be either a seventh senshi or some kind of special helper that will take the place of these extra senshi. My only concern is why the buttons for Go-onGold¬†and Go-onSilver are the same button? Does he magically split and change into Go-on Wings?(It would be so awesome if he did)¬†Seriously, what are they going to do about that?

And as for the Go-KaiCellular, it’s a little unconventional. Instead of the staple flip phone design that’s¬†been in use since the first cell phone changer, they went with a smartphone-esqe¬†design. I would compare it to a Nokia phone, but it has a much wider “screen”, kind of like the Droid Pro. I’ll admit though, while the concept is unique, I’m not fond of the button design. Because it has all of the senshi¬†he can change into on the buttons, and doesn’t use the same RangerKey¬†system the others do, he’s very limited to the number of senshi he can change into. Overall, I like the phone, and the concept.

I hope the character behind the mask is just as impressive as the costume, otherwise I will be beyond disappointed. Quite frankly, if they make him into that strong, mysterious silent type, and not some flamboyant, over-the top character, then I’m just going to have a very long talk with the writers, producers and directors at Toei. And while I’m there, I may just have to bring up the subject of net neutrality and fair use. I honestly can’t think of anyone with the gall¬†to upload any upcoming episodes of the series onto YouTube. Somebody get on that right now!

UPDATE: (2/25/11) Just found a pic of his main weapon, Go-KaiSpear.

It has three modes,¬†a trident mode, a blaster mode, and a special anchor-spear mode that he uses in his Gold Form. It looks like it will also come with the Dragon Ranger Key (Zyuranger/MMPR Green Ranger). Let’s¬†keep an¬†eye¬†out for this!

UPDATE: (3/7/11) Found this pic just now, seems they will release sixth ranger toys with the Go-KaiSilver stuff.

 

And if you’ll notice, they are going to release ShinkenOh and Daizyujin/MMPR Megazord. So can’t wait for that, even if I probably won’t buy it.
