Power Rangers Battle for the Grid has been available for a little over a month now, and the budget fighting game title is seeing its first major update drop today, April 30.

The developers over at nWay announced that an update should be available for Power Rangers players across all platforms that adds three new playable characters, the previously promised story mode centered around the Shattered Grid comics, voice acting from some original actors and new stages to play on.

As was previously announced, Dragon Armor Trini, Udonna and Cenozoic Blue Ranger have been added to Battle for the Grid as playable fighters bringing the current roster up to 12 with three more on the way with the Season Pass.

The original Mighty Morphin red and green rangers, Austin St. John and Jason David Frank, have returned to reprise their roles in the fighting game with the newly added voice acting which was absent in the original release.

Story Mode is written by the Kyle Higgins, the writer behind Power Rangers: Shattered Grid, with art from illustrator Dan Mora which provides a new take on the Shattered Grid story line following Lord Drakkon's campaign to leap across timelines to destroy every Power Ranger.

You can check out the full update breakdown below for the new characters, stages, and story now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch plus a trailer for a taste of what to expect.

Story Mode

Gamers can now play through an epic story line written and voice directed by writer/director Kyle Higgins (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Shattered Grid, Nightwing, Batman: Gates of Gotham). The mode also features original artwork by Eisner Award-winning illustrator Dan Mora (Go Go Power Rangers, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Klaus). In this new mode, players experience a re-imagining of the critically acclaimed Shattered Grid event from Boom! Studios’ Power Rangers comic book series. When Lord Drakkon, an evil alternate version of Tommy Oliver, sets off a massive campaign across time and space to destroy all Power Rangers, they must band together and fight back, before all of existence falls to his armies.

New Voice overs by Original Cast

The new content includes story and combat voice overs performed by original Power Rangers cast members, including Jason David Frank (Tommy Oliver), Austin St. John (Jason Lee Scott), David J. Fielding (Zordon), Kerrigan Mahan (Goldar) and Meghan “Strawburry17” Camarena (Kimberly).

Three new characters enter the world of Battle for the Grid:

Dragon Armor Trini: When the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers were viciously attacked by the Black Dragon, a powerful Zord from another dimension with the capability to warp Ranger powers, they were in for the fight of their lives. After he was defeated, Trini was able to refashion the Zord into a powerful suit of enhanced armor.

Udonna: Udonna is a powerful sorceress who trains the Mystic Force Power Rangers in the art of magic. As the Mystic Force White Ranger, this accomplished sorceress uses the power of snow to freeze evil.

Cenozoic Blue Ranger: The Cenozoic Blue Ranger was a loyal and powerful soldier who served with Zordon, the original Red Ranger. Eons after his tragic demise at the hands of the traitorous Green Ranger Rita Repulsa, his Power Coin was found by a teenager named Billy Cranston, who then took on the Blue Ranger mantle.

New Arenas

Four new battle arenas:

Selectable Arenas: Corinth and Planet Earth: Cenozoic Era

Non-Selectable Arenas (Story Mode only): Command Center (Malfunctioning) and Lord Drakkon’s Throne Room (Flashback)
