Toei produced a one-hour crossover special for both shows that aired in March, titled Shuriken Sentai Nin'ninger VS Kamen Rider Drive Haruyasumi Gattai 1-jikan Special (Shuriken Sentai Nin'ninger VS Kamen Rider Drive: 1-Hour Spring Break Combo Special).
The Kamen Rider Drive special-effects series premiered in October 2014, and is currently airing on Japanese television. The series' story features android-like creatures called Roimyūdo who want to be human. However, some of the Roimyūdo are plotting to revolt against mankind. Shinnosuke Tomari is a recruit in the Tokyo Metropolitan Police District's Special Unit. He turns into Kamen Rider Drive using the power of Shift Cars and the super car, Tridoron, to battle the Roimyūdo.
The Shuriken Sentai Nin'ninger special-effects series premiered in February, and marks the 40th anniversary of Toei's Super Sentai franchise. The story takes place after The Last Ninjer sealed away all the yōkai in the world. This lasted until The Last Ninjer's death, when the yōkai returned. His descendants, five cousins, battle the yōkai as the Nin'ninger.
