It’s morphin time for the newest team of Power Rangers!
Power Rangers HyperForce, the first licensed property to live-stream a table-top role playing game on Twitch, has officially been announced!
The game will launch in celebration of the brand’s 25th anniversary and will stream live on Hyper RPG, an industry leading channel on Twitch, the world’s leading social video service and community.
Earlier this year, in promotion of 2017’s feature film with Lionsgate, Twitch ran a seventeen-day long Power Rangers marathon on its Twitch Presents channel and streamed all 23 seasons and 831 episodes of the television series. This was one of Twitch’s most successful campaigns to date with nearly 13MM channel views and 7.4MM chat messages.
Based on the success of this digital initiative, Power Rangers, Hyper RPG and Twitch are teaming up as part of the Power Rangers’ year-long celebration of the franchise’s 25th anniversary.
Fans can check out all the show details below, including the premiere date, storyline, and cast members!
The show will premiere on October 24 from 6:00 – 9:00PM PT, live on www.twitch.tv/hyperrpg.
Shows will air weekly and each of the 25 episodes for the 25th anniversary celebration will provide three hours of tabletop role playing and real-time interaction with the franchise’s dedicated, global fan base.
About the Game
Power Rangers HyperForce is set in the year 3016 at Time Force Academy. A team of Time Force Ranger cadets must band together to defeat an ancient evil who is set on unraveling the very fabric of the universe. Under the leadership of their mentor, Jen Scott, and with the show’s Game Master, Malika Lim, the newly minted Rangers will cross both time and space to complete their mission while running into many familiar eras (and faces) along the way.
The stakes have never been higher as the players learn what it means to be a Ranger in a live, tabletop RPG environment where anything can happen.
Hyper RPG has developed a Twitch Extension that will allow viewers to select a Ranger that is permanently tied to the user’s unique ID. Viewers will be able to send their Ranger out on daily missions, boss battles, and raids, as well as trade cool loot with other players.
The suits for Power Rangers HyperForce will be based on Greek mythology, with each suit containing minor visual call backs to legendary Power Rangers teams from the past!
The designs were created by Peter Sudarso, Red Ranger on Power Rangers HyperForce and Blue Ranger on Power Rangers Ninja Steel. The suits will mark the first-ever Power Rangers team to feature suits based on the serpent, Cerberus, and ram.
Fans can check out the official suit designs above.
The team features male Red, Blue, and Yellow Rangers, and female Black and Pink Rangers.
The Zords for Power Rangers HyperForce are also based on Greek mythology, with each Zord containing special attacks that can take down opponents.
The Hyper Zords feature:
•Red Lion Hyper Zord
•Blue Serpent Hyper Zord
•Black Cerberus Hyper Zord
•Yellow Ram Hyper Zord
•Pink Phoenix Hyper Zord
Together, the Zords come together to form the Chronos Hyper Force Megazord.

The Theme Song
Power Rangers HyperForce features a brand new theme song and intro created by Saban Brands!
The theme song is unique to Power Rangers HyperForce, while drawing on inspiration from the Power Rangers Dino Charge theme song.
The Power Rangers HyperForce cast will use custom metal dice made by blacksmith Gil Ramirez (@GilTheVlogsmith). These dice will help determine the fate of the entire show as each roll determines what happens next!
