Go! Go! Sound Rangers! New Rhythm Game Blasting From Capcom

Capcom are bringing in a twist to battling baddies with Power Rangers on your iPhone with Sound Rangers: Rhythm & Battle! A new IP, it melds traditional RPG elements such as fighting bad guys like Kewpie dolls and plants as power rangers with the, er, powers, of music.

 

Much like traditional music games such as Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan! or Pop’n’Music, Sound Rangers has players hitting buttons (representing each color of power ranger) in time to on-screen prompts on a circular dial while music plays. Do well in a section and the combos and powers of the rangers will beat up the enemy. Mini-games during battle include punching in button combos quickly for damaging attacks or rapidly swirling a power wheel to enhance the ranger’s megarobot.

 

RPG elements similar to other free-to-play titles include being able to level up your rangers for more damage and health, capturing and converting monsters (The video suggests there might be a magical girl gang as well) and using them in the lineup. There will be more than 300 characters to fight/capture and more than 100 songs.

    ok

    This actually sounds kinda fun but alas, I have no way to play it.

    Aw, was hoping this was 3DS news. Sucker for rhythm games.

    • TalesLaw

      There is still hope.

    I’m terrified this will be free-to-play—

    Please, please, PLEASE charge a fixed price for this, Capcom! I’ve no qualms paying import Itunes gift card if it means I get to experience the full game and not have to worry about it being inevitably shut down.

    I’ll seriously be super dissapointed: this looks friggin’ amazing. For handhelds/mobile rhythm games are my favorite genre; I’d genuinely hate to discover this is one of those super temporary, FTP games :(

    Looks like it’s a gonna be a bit hard to play. I like the simplicity of games like Cytus, that works for me. Still interesting though, and yes, I was also hoping it would be for the 3DS.

    Hey Capcom, you know you already have a Sentai parody series right?

    • anthony apduhan

      Viewtiful Joe yeah remembered him also Platinum also did a sentai parody as well.

  • Tonton Ramos

    Capcom knows Power Rangers? Megaforce wants their “Mega” back…

    • Guest

      considering its a show using footage from another show…

  • Sergio Briceño

    I kind of understand why Mighty No. 9 got funded in a day now. Fans are just tired of waiting for Capcom to do justice…

  • harmonyworld

    for a sec, I thought they were the super robot monkey team!

  • Göran Isacson

    Man. So there’s a bunch of superhero teams, one Power Rangers, one magical girl, and one that’s a bunch of identiacl dudes in differently colored afros and they can summon a literal Soul Train… gotta admit, this one looks fun.
