Clank! studio behind series focused on ‘teamwork, inclusivity and diversity’
‘90s classic Power Rangers is making a return to the tabletop with a new series of games based on the TV show and toy brand.
Behind the upcoming games is Clank! and Lanterns: The Harvest Festival studio Renegade, which has teamed up – much like the Megazord – with Power Rangers creator Saban.
There’s not too much detail on what's planned just yet – the initial brief announcement simply confirms “tabletop games” are in the works, so we could even see the Rangers make their way to miniatures, but at least one board game seems a pretty safe bet.
Renegade does add that the games will be “focused on fan experiences that uphold the Power Rangers’ brand core values of teamwork, inclusivity and diversity” – so a co-op game wouldn’t be amiss – and will feature the Rangers (obviously), plus various villains and locations from the series.
It’s not clear whether the games will be based on the long-running TV series or last year’s cinematic reboot – Renegade promises the games will “reward super fans and also, intrigue players who have recently been introduced to the brand”, so it could be a mixture of the two.
We’ll find out more 'soon' – as long as we can put all the models together to make a massive robot with a sword, we’ll be happy.
