The world of Power Rangers mobile games and the world of Power Rangers comics are about to collide.
Power Rangers: Legacy Wars is officially collaborating with BOOM! Studios to bring characters from the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comics into the mobile game as playable fighters.
Fighting game developer nWay announced today their plans to introduce Lord Drakkon and Black Dragon – two characters who will each make their first debut outside of the comic book series.
“We love how BOOM! Studios has taken the Power Rangers story to unprecedented and mature places, and now we’re bringing the characters to a new realm with their first appearance in a video game,” said Taehoon Kim, CEO, nWay. “Partnering with them to bring in Lord Drakkon and Black Dragon is the perfect way to bolster Power Rangers: Legacy Wars’ roster with next-level evil warriors!”
“Powers Rangers: Legacy Wars marks the first time that the all-new canonical creations from BOOM! Studios’ Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comics ventured beyond the two-dimensional page,” said Filip Sablik, President of Publishing & Marketing, BOOM! Studios. “As an avid player of this amazing game, I couldn’t be more thrilled to be partnering with the team at nWay and our friends at Saban Brands and Lionsgate to unleash these two villains!”
Lord Drakkon is an intensely evil version of Tommy Oliver from an alternate universe who rules his Earth with dystopian philosophies. Lord Drakkon first appeared in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #9 from BOOM! Studios. Black Dragon is a powerful Zord from an alternate universe that’s come to destroy Tommy Oliver. Black Dragon first appeared in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #4 from BOOM! Studios.
The two characters will become available on Thursday, July 20 when the latest game update becomes available. Also included in the update will be some of the most requested features and tweaks, such as:
● Challenge Mode – Compete in a series of battles using a group of your teams and reach the maximum number of wins before losing three matches in order to win huge prizes.
● Talents System – Upgrade your warriors with passive abilities that provide bonus damage and attributes.
For a closer look at these new characters, fans can attend the BOOM! Studios Power Rangers panel on Friday, July 21, at 11:30 a.m. PDT at San Diego Comic-Con.
