SAN FRANCISCO – Oct. 19, 2017 – Power Rangers: Legacy Wars, the mega-hit synchronous mobile fighting game, is initiating one of its most highly-anticipated game updates to-date with fan-favorite Megazords entering the arena for the first time. Starting today with the massive content update, players can play as these massive Megazords, pitting them against villains and other Megazords in Power Rangers: Legacy Wars which has been downloaded more than 23 million times since its launch and has more than 230 million matches played.
“Since Legacy Wars’ inception, nWay, Saban Brands and Lionsgate always envisioned making a game that would capture the team aspect of Power Rangers and showcase that #TogetherWeAreMore,” said Taehoon Kim, CEO, nWay. “The Megazord is the ultimate symbol of that sentiment and bringing Megazords to our game is a true realization of that vision.”
The Megazord update to Power Rangers: Legacy Wars also introduces an alliance-focused game mode featuring epic, real-time battles between the Megazords and mega-sized villains from the franchise’s 24-year history. Players will work with their alliance to complete sets of challenges entitled “Alliance Missions,” which can be completed faster by coordinating with active members. By finishing missions, players will be rewarded with Zords and collecting enough of these will unlock a battle-ready mighty Megazord to use against other alliances. Each Megazord can be fully customized before a battle by equipping two “Mega” attacks - special moves to be activated after filling a meter.
Beginning with this update, Power Rangers: Legacy Wars will also feature periodic “Megazord Alliance Wars” in which players compete against other alliances to climb a leaderboard that doles out rewards based on position – the higher a player ranks, the greater rewards received.
In collaboration with Saban Brands and Lionsgate, the development team at nWay have mixed their deep passion for Power Rangers to bring the fan-favorite Megazords to Power Rangers: Legacy Wars.
