SAN JOSE, Calif. – (April 11, 2013) - NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. today announced that Power Rangers MEGAFORCE® for the Nintendo 3DS™ will be heading to retailers in North and Latin America in fall 2013. The side-scrolling, action-packed video game will be based on the popular Nickelodeon television series of the same title allowing fans to play as the Power Rangers Megaforce and defend Earth against the evil Warstar aliens.
In this new chapter of the popular Power Rangers video game series, fans play as their favorite Megaforce Ranger while the supporting Power Rangers provide their boundless advice and encouragement to players as they battle their way through challenge after challenge. The Rangers’ vocal and physical support will prove valuable as challenging situations and conditions arise in an attempt to foil players’ advancement. Power Rangers MEGAFORCE will plunge players into intense battles against repulsive enemies, but by forming gigantic Megazords, the Rangers will be able to implement powerful combos to help get them on the path to victory.
To enhance the player’s experience, Power Rangers MEGAFORCE will allow fans to scan official Power Rangers MEGAFORCE Morpher Cards to power up within the game. Players will also be able to utilize the Nintendo 3DS camera to take a picture and watch themselves actively morph into their favorite Megaforce Ranger to fend off enemy encounters with their own hands.
