In a partnership with Toei, Korean studios Daewon Media (Crayon Shin-chan Online), Ntreev Soft (Trickster Online) and Ironnos (Crimson Gem Saga) have teamed up to bring the sentai might of the Power Rangers to the massively-multiplayer online RPG world.
Set to be unveiled later this year, the MMO will be based primarily on the Power Rangers Mystic Force series, which originally aired in Japan from 2005-2006 as Mahou Sentai Magiranger. This season has apparently been particularly popular in Korea since airing in 2006.
Targeted at everyone—male and female, young and old—the Power Rangers MMO is reportedly a side-scroller, outfitting would-be Rangers with transformation powers and pitting them against a variety of monsters. Announcement of a closed beta is expected before the end of the year.
