The current Super Sentai season, Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger, already features a walloping lineup of 11 Rangers. But the show has no plans of slowing down, as Toei prepares to add a 12th Ranger and new power-up mode to the mix!
Today, HeroShock provided fans their first look at a second Red Ranger.
The 12th Ranger (seen above) will add a second male Red Ranger to the team, going by the name of Houhou Solider. Embodying a Phoenix, the character will wield a sword and shield, and use a Rocket Voyager Zord/Mecha which can transform into a larger Megazord/robot.
Details on the new Red Ranger’s identity, have not yet been revealed. It’s possible the character could be passed off as a Crimson Ranger.
A new power-up mode for the Red Ranger was also revealed, giving the team leader a new White mode.
No other context on the new mode was provided. Stay tuned as more details surface.
Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger currently airs every Saturday in Japan. The season is expected to be adapted overseas as a Power Rangers season in 2019.
