Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Rita's Rewind Announcement Trailer

Online and offline co-op gameplay allows up to five simultaneous players to morph into their Power Ranger of choice and even pilot their powerful Zords. A high-energy synth soundtrack will keep their adrenaline pumping as they battle a host of familiar enemies, but with some unexpected twists.

Digital Eclipse debuted the game at Summer Game Fest with an announcement trailer to kick off the game's wishlist on Steam. Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Rita's Rewind is currently in development and will be released on PC and console in late 2024.

“As we celebrate over 30 years of POWER RANGERS, we are excited to collaborate with Digital Eclipse to introduce Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Rita's Rewind to our passionate fanbase,” said Eugene Evans, SVP Digital Strategy and Licensing at Hasbro and Wizards of the Coast. “We created Hasbro Retro Arcade to deliver a modern take on old-school arcade action based on our world-class brands and characters. This further illustrates our strategy to grow our digital games portfolio through licensing and internal development and we can't wait for fans' reactions when revisiting iconic moments through this new, yet retro, gameplay.”

A new story with a familiar foe…In Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Rita's Rewind, the team faces off against a robotic reincarnation of the Power Rangers' long-time nemesis. Robo-Rita has conjured a portal to send herself back in time so she can finally vanquish the Power Rangers by forming an alliance with her younger self. Working together, Robo-Rita and Rita Repulsa rewind, rewrite, and remix the past in an attempt to stop the very formation of the Power Rangers, altering the course of history.

Will the two Ritas and their army of monstrous enemies from across the MMPR timeline finally succeed in destroying the Power Rangers? Or will these teenagers with attitude learn to work together and counter this catastrophic chronological collaboration?

Players will be able to experience the origins of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers again – for the first time! The past will never be the same…
