Go, go Power Rangers (electric guitar kicks in). Come on, sing along….go, go Power Rangers (electric guitar riff) you Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers (electric guitar riff)… … …meh, it was better with the spandex, the plastic helmets and the 90s-themed cheese on TV.
Anyway, Saban’s popular but cheap, spandex-armored superheroes are making a return to home consoles and handhelds with Power Rangers Samurai for the Nintendo Wii and the DS, available at local retailers right now.
As stated in the press release…
The game brings a new generation of Rangers to life, offering families high quality entertainment with a positive message. Published by NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. and produced by Saban Brands LLC and Power Rangers Productions Ltd, Saban’s Power Rangers Samurai lets players of all ages become the Rangers they admire, as they immerse themselves into the morphing action of the iconic team of heroes.
The Power Rangers used to be cool when the Green Ranger was bad, Bulk and Skull were embarrassingly over-the-top and the main bad lady had bad voice-over dubbing. The Power Rangers are no strangers to the world of video games, though, players have been walking down the streets kicking the crap out of Puddies since the early days of the SNES and Sega Genesis. The new game, however, doesn’t stray far from its roots and still offers gamers side-scrolling beat-e’m-up action for up to two-players.
What’s a Power Ranger game without Megazords, though? It’s nothing but cheap plastic helmets with martial artists wearing spandex that’s supposed to be armor. That’s why Saban and Namco Bandai wisely kept the Megazords in the new Power Rangers Samurai game, complete with all the hard-hitting, mecha action that helped cement the Power Rangers as some of the baddest mofos this side of the galaxy.
You can pick up Power Rangers Samurai for the Nintendo Wii or the DS and kick the crap out of 3D guys wearing plastic helmets and donning spandex right now for only $39.99 for the Wii and $29.99 for the DS. You can learn more about the game by visiting the Official Website.
