Mighty Morphin Power Rangers was the name adopted for multiple video game titles, all based on the original TV series. The TV series bore the same name, and thanks to the creators, video game fans have had a whole list of titles to delight in since 1994. And now, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Rita’s Rewind is the latest installation of the long list of iterations.

Notably, the over 25 video game titles come from different developers. Only devs like nWay Games and Natsume have multiple recapitulations, such as nWay Games’ Power Rangers: Legacy Wars and Battle for the Grid. On its part, Rita’s Rewind is developed and published by Digital Eclipse. This is the first time the developers are creating a Mighty Morphin Power Rangers game. 

Story

The new side-scrolling video game has the same characters as the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. However, the action-adventure title attempts to change the storyline by altering history. The Power Rangers still take on the tyrannical alien warlord and the Master of Evil’s wife, Rita Repulsa.

She’s the Empress of Evil and the secondary villain in the Power Rangers franchise. Inspired by her desire to take over Earth, the galactic conqueror operates as an evil space witch. In Rita’s Rewind, she uses her magic powers to form a better alliance with her army of monsters and dark powers.

The futuristic Robo-Rita uses magic to make herself travel back in time to join her younger self. She believes that by fighting in a Robo-Rita and Rita Repulsa due, they can finally overpower the Power Rangers. The duo rewind, rewrite, and remix history in their quest to annihilate the Power Rangers. 

Gameplay
