Super Sentai Battle Ranger Cross Unites Sentai Series On Wii

By Spencer . April 5, 2011 . 11:04pm

powerr Super Sentai universes collide in an upcoming game from Namco Bandai. Super Sentai Battle Ranger Cross brings together characters from Goseiger, Go-Onger, Shinkenger, and the series that started the franchise Goranger into one Wii game.

 

This week’s issue of Famitsu has Super Sentai Battle Ranger Cross and online reports says its Musou or Dynasty Warriors-like. Bandai plans to publish the title in Japan this fall.

 

At their press event in February, Namco Bandai said they are working on Power Ranger games in North America. A game for Power Rangers: Samurai was announced without many details. This adaptation is based on Shinkenger, which is part of Super Sentai Battle Ranger Cross.

    Why not just make a game for the newest series, the Gokaigers?

    That way, you’d regroup all 35 sentai parties in one game. Sure, it’d technically just be a sentai game about one group, but considering their abilities…

    • godmars

      Then you’re doing moves for 35 sentai teams plus the various combos and mixes between them, plus the moves of the Gokaigers as they learn/use the other sentai’s powers.

      • Testsubject909

        I’d pay 60-80$ for that.

        According to the latest info, only five teams will take part in this game. Dang.

        Eh it is a Musou type game though so they only need like 3 animation sets for every character. Hell they could just paste generic low res textures for each of the 35 mass villians and add in each team and call it a day. It isn’t like this is a one on one fighter.

        It is sad, the super sentai series much like Kamen Rider has a rich and long history that could make a hell of a compelling game, but of the 10 or so sentai games I have played, the best was a Carranger game on the Sufami Turbo and even it was pretty basic.

    Ah, seeing Shinkenger in there made made me want to play.

    Hm, if Bioman, Kousoku Sentai Turborangers, Fiveman, and Jetman are here, then I might just import this.

    • daizyujin

      Bioman, Liveman, Zyuranger, Dairanger, Abaranger, Gekiranger, or no sale. Seriously though it would make more sense to me to at least have red from each team if nothing else. It won’t likely matter though since this is a game from Bandai/Namco on the Wii and NOT tied to an established Namco property it is sure to just be crapware like the last few Kamen Rider games.

    About time we had another Power Rangers game… What?!… What’s the dirty looks for o_O

    While they are still “lol Namco” I think they are on a good track right now. Graces in English, Solarobo for Europe, and now another “real” Wii game.

    I believe the punch line for this year is “Who’s stupid enough to invade Earth this year.”

    • Testsubject909

      I believe the answer to that would be:
      The Zangyak Empire.

      They’re not faring too well right now.

      • http://twitter.com/UkiyaSeed Ian Titular

        To be honest, the Zangyacks are quite competent, but the problem is that the Gokaigers have the ability to turn into any past Ranger team! Oh, and the fact that Captain Marvelous. Joe and Luka are badassess adds up to Zangyack’s problems!

        • Guest

          Actually the Zangyacks are going through a global recession and their deficit is in the trillions as well as a severe depletion in the Ozone layer and unemployment is at a all time high along with an upside down housing market and a recent stock market crash so…

    Apparently the new trend is making “Dynasty Warriors-like” games, just as people are getting tired of “Dynasty Warriors-like” games. (I.e Fist of North Star Musou)

      Speak for yourself, sir. I’m not going to buy every single Musou game, but I’m still digging them.

    Updates about the game have been released.
    http://orendsrange.blogspot.com/2011/04/super-sentai-battle-ranger-cross-game.html

    Yes, the Gokaiger will take part on this one, along with GIANT. ROBOT. BATTLES.

    • https://twitter.com/RaiohV ShinkaRaioh

      Oh yes! Gokaiger is super great, I love the new theme! :D And Giant Robot Battles are my favorite battles…hopefully this won’t be a Wii exclusive~

    • http://twitter.com/UkiyaSeed Ian Titular

      I updated this post, and I am disappointed ONLY FIVE TEAMS?! Oh well, considering the limits of the system, I guess it is understandable.

    • Guest

      If it doesn’t have GIANT. ROBOT. BATTLES. I will be..disappoint..

  • http://flailthroughs.blogspot.com Flailthroughs

    I was watching Gokaiger recently and thinking a Dynasty Warriors-type game would be perfect for Super Sentai. I hope it’s good!
