Gamers can unlock a team a Power Rangers and villains tied to the entire history of the Power Rangers franchise with more than 40 different characters included.
Every action in the game is tried to an energy meter, and each move costs energy. When playing, you can slide out of the way of attacks and complete other moves to counteract a big maneuver by an opponent.
During play, you’ll have three moves to activate at at time with their own energy levels as well as asset moves tied to other characters brought into battle.
