What do Kamen Rider Drive, Spyro The Dragon, Super Mario Bros, and Buzz Lightyear of Toy Story all have in common? They each have their own line of video game gimmick figures. Let's rewind it back to December 2014. Bandai Namco had just pumped out another game for their live-action Kamen Rider franchise on TV in Japan, this one with a slight twist. Bandai Namco wanted to hop in on the gimmick figure market much like like its competitors at Skylanders, Amiibo, and Disney Infinity, so they made Kamen Rider Summonride. Unfortunately, due to poor game design, bad controls, and the fact that the figures are extremely lackluster, Summonride fell flat.

Welcome to Game Day here at Henshin Justice Unlimited. And to kick things off as we ring in a brand new year of justice, we've fired up the ole Playstation 4 to rock out Kamen Rider Climax Fighters, the hotly-anticipated video game based on the Kamen Rider television series.
Including all the monster-fighting title heroes from Kamen Rider Build, Kamen Rider Ex-Aid, Kamen Rider Ghost, Kamen Rider Drive, Kamen Rider Gaim, and many others across the long-running Kamen Rider tokuscape, this game comes to us with an official English-language edition, making it of particular interest to many of us in the western fan community. Let's get started, with a Game Session, coming at us from friends of justice, Fighting Frogs Ultra.
Update: Bandai Namco has released the trailer with official English-language subtitles. It can be found below. Our original post follows.
It's climaxes all around, as Kamen Rider Climax Fighters gets an extended trailer detailing many of the action game's play mechanics, special features, and character dynamics. Based upon the extensive Kamen Rider superhero franchise, in which cyborgs, revived murder victims, and video game-addicted doctors to name a few, suit up to battle monsters bent upon terrorizing the innocent. This time, the heroes are facing each other, in an all-out brawl of epic proportions. And it's not just the lead heroes of each annual series that have shown up to the party. A host of Secondary Riders is signing up to join the action.
Among this colorful crew of s...
New posters for this winter's Kamen Rider mega-crossover event, Kamen Rider Heisei Generations FINAL: Build & Ex-Aid with Legend Riders, have surfaced, and we've got our microscopes handy for some good old-fashioned speculation about what these images could mean for the landmark film. As the headlining Kamen Rider Build takes center stage as the final Rider series of this decades-long franchise to air during Japan's Heisei Era, this can be seen as the closing chapter of an epic saga. At least until next year, where we inevitably start all over again.
First, the beautious new posters for the film, featuring the star-studded cast of superheroic figures of past and present, among which are a few actors that many Rider fans never believed they'd see again.

Since 2011, Kamen Rider The Diner has been serving food and drinks inspired by the many heroes, villains, and other eccentrics of the Kamen Rider superhero universe. Starting this week, the Tokyo restaurant is cooking up some special treats for the Halloween season, featuring Ghosts of Kamen Rider Past and Present. Many of us will be left without the chance to sample these delights, but it won't hurt (much) to make your mouth water a bit.
The diner's official Twitter gave us the heads up on their Halloween-themed menu items.
It's not every day someone can recommend you swallow graphite and actually mean it in a good way.
Among the drinks inspired by the monster Graphite from Kamen Rider Ex-Aid, you also have items for the Wolf Orphenoch from Kamen Rider Faiz, Ikadevil and Bee ...
The excitement lasts all night long in the new Kamen Rider Climax Fighters video game, ready to Rider Kick its way into English-speaking homes this winter. Featuring superheroes from across the Kamen Rider television franchise battling it out for supremacy on a grand stage (because reasons), to decide once and for all who really starts on a climax. Take a gander at the sick trailer, featuring the dulcet tones of PANDORA and the Kamen Rider Girls, providing the soundtrack to this epic battle royale.
Well, they already had my curiosity, but seeing the video open with Kamen Rider Faiz Axel, now they have my attention. Joining him in this fighting game event are Kamen Rider Den-O, Kamen Rider Gaim, Kamen Rider Double, the new Kamen Rider Build, a...
For those that might not remember..Master Grade(or MG for short) FigureRise was Bandai’s attempt to bring together Kamen Rider with plastic build it yourself model kits ala Gunpla. The line was short lived...with the last kit being Kamen Rider 1 in his old color scheme released in 2011...or so we thought.
