A Gold/Silver Ranger is coming to Super Sentai’s Lupinranger Vs. Patranger!
As the first additional Ranger to be revealed, this male character will be a double agent with the ability to shift between both teams – the Lupinrangers, and the Patrangers.
The Ranger will become a Silver Ranger when on the Lupinrangers’ side (also known as Lupin-X), and a Gold Ranger when on the Patrangers’ side (also known at Patren-X).
Using his X-Changer Morpher, he will also have the ability to summon two Zords – one Silver, and one Gold, both seen below.
At this time, it is not yet known when this new Ranger will debut on Japanese airwaves.
Lupinranger Vs. Patranger will feature two sets of Ranger teams, based on a cops and robbers theme. This will mark Toei’s second attempt at a police-themed season since Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger, which went on to become Power Rangers S.P.D. in its overseas adaption.
Lupinranger have an air-based Zord/Mecha theme, while Patranger have a ground-based Zord/Mecha theme.
The season’s storyline will follow the Lupin Collection, powerful items with the ability to either save or destroy the human race. The Lupinrangers will fight to regain their historic collection, while the Patrangers will fight for justice, sometimes leading to the two sides colliding, while other times leafing to the two sides teaming up. Together, they will join an evil enemy force known as the Gangler in a three-way struggle for Earth’s survival.
Should Lupinranger vs. Patranger be adapted overseas into a season of Power Rangers, it would likely have to wait until 2021 – should Saban Brands decide to adapt it at all.
Lupinranger Vs. Patranger will premiere in Japan on February 11, 2018.
