Bandai Namco has released a trailer for the upcoming Kamen Rider Battrider War Genesis game.
The third game in Bandai Namco’s “hack ‘n slash” Kamen Rider game series will feature the largest roster of playable characters yet, along with the return of 10 actors reprising characters from their respective shows.
The game’s theme song is Colorless Images by Tourbillon, a group composed of members from the Japanese rock band LUNA SEA. Tourbillon previously contributed to the franchise by performing the opening theme song to 2008’s Kamen Rider Kiva.
This game is being made to commemorate the 45th anniversary of the Kamen Rider franchise. Tracing the history of the franchise itself, the game has the player rescuing different Kamen Riders and adding them to their party. It is the player’s task to raise the Riders and their abilities. While in battle, the player must increase their Rider’s voltage to 100% to unleash different special attacks.
New features include Takeshi Hongo being a playable character when out of suit. He can also transform into the original Kamen Rider.
