With Skylanders and Disney Infinity on the market, and Nintendo’s amiibo on the way, Kamen Rider franchise is also trying to make its way into figurine-compatible gaming with Kamen Rider: SummonRide! This week’s issue of Famitsu shares more details. [Thanks, Game Jouhou.]
Kamen Rider: SummonRide! will feature the Heisei-era Riders in an alternate world, where up to four people can cooperate in the action taking place on the stage set in an alternate world.
You’ll place the leader of your “Ride Figures” on the “Ride Gate,” which is basically a platform that will let you place your figurine to register its data into the game. You’ll also be able to use “Ride Chips” to enhance your characters and even summon support characters to help you out.
When you buy Kamen Rider: SummonRide! for PlayStation 3 or Wii U, it will include the Ride Gate, three Ride Figures, three Enhance Ride Chips, and an Allied Rider Chip.
So far, the confirmed Riders are: Drive, Kuuga, Agito, Ryuki, Faiz, Blade, Hibiki, Kabuto, Den-O, Kiva, Decade, W, OOO, Forze, Wizard, and Gaim.
Kamen Rider: SummonRide! will release in Japan on December 4, 2014 for PlayStation 3 and Wii U for 8,550 yen (about $78).
