Might Morphin Power Rangers: Rita’s Rewind brings the Rangers back to their beat ’em up roots

The original team is back, and so’s their arch-villain Rita Repulsa, in retro-actioner Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Rita’s Rewind.

Go, go Power Rangers!

Joining other properties like the TMNT, Streets of Rage, and Double Dragon, the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers are coming back for an all-new side-scroller. Hailing from Digital Eclipse, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Rita’s Rewind will dive into the original era of the monster fighting super-team, and present fans with a mix of gameplay, letting them “brawl, blast, fight, and drive” through a “constantly shifting mix of classic game genres and fan-favorite moments from the series”.

The title will support up to five players in co-op too, plus the ability to pilot the famous Zords. It’s all set to take place in an all-new time-twisting storyline, that’ll see players going head-to-head with not one, but two Rita Repulsa’s.

“As we celebrate over 30 years of POWER RANGERS, we are excited to collaborate with Digital Eclipse to introduce Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Rita’s Rewind to our passionate fanbase,” said Eugene Evans, SVP Digital Strategy and Licensing at Hasbro and Wizards of the Coast. “We created Hasbro Retro Arcade to deliver a modern take on old-school arcade action based on our world-class brands and characters. This further illustrates our strategy to grow our digital games portfolio through licensing and internal development and we can’t wait for fans’ reactions when revisiting iconic moments through this new, yet retro, gameplay.”
