The newest indie tokusatsu game available to the public comes in the form of a Super Sentai/tabletop mashup.
A new indie tokusatsu RPG called Henshin! A Sentai RPG released on March 6 for fans to purchase. It is a tabletop game made by Cave of Monsters Games that emulates the Sentai genre into its rules and narratives.
Previously featured when it was in its Kickstarter phase, the project cleared its $5,000 goal with over $20,000 in funding. The website publishing the tabletop game describes it as:
“a storytelling tabletop game about young heroes with transformative powers who battle both monsters and personal problems. It borrows from a Japanese superhero culture of color-coded masked teams, giant robots, and over-the-top special effects. Anyone can tell fun, collaborative stories in Henshin!, regardless of familiarity with the tropes, and the game showcases a diversity of settings and characters for every player”
You can purchase Henshin! A Sentai RPG in a few different ways from DriveThruRPG’s website. The indie game is primarily available as a PDF file for $15. For those who prefer a physical copy of the game, you can pay $20 for a softcover book. A bundle of both the PDF file and the softcover book is also available for purchase.
The creators encourage players to visit the official game’s website for resources and additional information regarding the game.
