A few days ago, a supposedly leaked trailer for a new Power Rangers fighting game appeared online, and now it has been officially confirmed by the developers who have offered up more details about the upcoming title.

Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid is scheduled to release this April from the developers at nWay as a 3v3 fighter with some help from a familiar face that the fighting game community is sure to recognize.

Street Fighter and Marvel legend Justin Wong announced that he is working with the studio to help balance the collection of rangers stating "here is a fun fact about this game. I am currently helping balance the game and making sure this game is AWESOME!"

nWay has also assured players that Battle for the Grid is not a console port of their mobile game, Power Rangers: Legacy Wars where Street Fighter's Ryu got his own ranger design, and they also confirmed the title will offer cross-platform play and progress progression between all systems. The Franchise Creative Director for Power Rangers, Jason Bischoff, says that the new game will have all new combat — no cards — and that each ranger will have unique moves, abilities and skins.

Four characters have been shown off so far with the original red and green Mighty Morphin rangers joined by the previously shown yellow Super Megaforce ranger plus a new image revealing Lord Drakkon from the Shattered Grid comic books.

Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid is now available to pre-order digitally for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PC for $19.99. You can check out the official screens for the game below along with the trailer after the jump.
