Power Ranger-like Kamen Rider Generation 2 for PS Vita and DS Screenshot

Power Ranger-like Kamen Rider Generation 2 game for PS Vita & DS

Kamen Rider is the fan-loved, infinitely edgier Japanese-only version of Power Rangers… in Japan Power Rangers is known as “Super Sentai” and has been running since the 1970s (stuff that in your pipe and smoke it). It’s okay. You learn something new everyday!

And Power Rangers itself is simply a style of show that is known as “sentai”, a sentai or Super Sentai-style show is a show, like Power Rangers (the most familiar one to Westerners) where people dress up in elaborate costumes and perform superhero-like feats. You could think of Godzilla as an early example of what I mean. Power Rangers has been by far the most popular American sentai, although we have gotten others. Any kid of the 90s (or an 80s kid like me) will recall other Power Ranger style shows such as VR Troopers, Beetle Borgs, The Masked Rider, Ultraman, Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog, Superhuman Samurai Syber Squad, etc.

Looks awesome doesn't it? :D

Anyway, because Kamen Rider is a Japanese series, the likelihood of us getting this new DS and PS Vita version is zilch, but the game actually looks quite awesome in screenshots. I’m a big Power Ranger fan, but I’ve never seen Kamen Rider (a show who’s following has grown exponentially since anime has grown in popularity and many a young American watches plenty of Japanese, Korean, etc. anime and live-action shows online)… blasphemous I know.

Feast your eyes on some screenshots of “Kamen Rider: Rider Generation 2”, the second Kamen Rider game. Definitely looks like it’s a beat-em up. I like beat-em ups. :D

Beat-em ups are nice. Me likes.

Here’s a video of the American version of Kamen Rider…. which I JUST FOUND OUT existed! :O LOOKS FREAKIN’ AWESOME! I gotta go cop that! :P The show airs on the CW in their 4Kids block on Saturdays at 9:30am or so.

Now here is a look at the Japanese Kamen Rider…. in a cheesy music video. Oh well.
