posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Toei revealed Kamen Rider Heisei Generations FOREVER, the title of this year's Kamen Rider Heisei Generations film. As with previous films in the series, it will crossover the previous Kamen Rider show with the upcoming show. This year, it will crossover Kamen Rider Build with the upcoming Kamen Rider Zi-O. The film will open on December 22.
The new Kamen Rider Zi-O series will premiere on September 2, and is based on a time-traveling theme (the series' "Zi-0" title alludes to jiō, literally "lord of time"), with the titular hero wearing the RideWatch and ZikuDriver items that allow him to transform. The new Kamen Rider Zi-O's power allows him to wear the suits of all the Heisei-era Kamen Riders and gain their power.
The story centers around a boy born in the year 2000, who has dreams of him becoming a king. In the fall of 2018, the boy meets a girl who appears before him in a time machine. The girl explains that she comes from the future year of 2068, a hopeless future where a demon king rules and people suffer. The girl further explains to the boy that his destiny will be to become "Zi-O," the same demon king that will rule over the world.
The Kamen Rider Zi-O character will also appear in the upcoming Kamen Rider Build: Be the One film that will open in Japan on Saturday.
Kamen Rider Heisei Generations FOREVER is part of a series of Kamen Rider crossover films that open yearly. Last year's film, Kamen Rider Heisei Generations FINAL Build & Ex-Aid with Legend Rider, opened on December 9.
