BOOM! Studios announced two new characters for Power Rangers: Legacy Wars via a July 18 press release. More information has since been given at San Diego Comic Con 2017.
As part of the BOOM! Studios Road to San Diego 2017, two new characters were revealed for Power Ranger: Legacy Wars. As of the 1.4.0 update, Lord Drakkon and Black Dragon have been added to the game. These two villains come straight from the pages of the BOOM! Studios Power Rangers comic book series. They are the first newly created official Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers characters to be created since the original series ended in 1995. This is the first time original creations from the comic books have been brought into other media.

Ninjor, from Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers season 3, and the Power Rangers movie’s version of the Putty, Rita Repulsa’s grunt soldier, have also been added to the roster. Other new features added to the game include a challenge mode in which players compete in a series of battles using groups of teams and a “talents system” which allows players to upgrade his or her warriors with passive abilities.
