At New York Toy Fair, Bandai of America unveiled their spin on the Skylanders gimmick with the Power Rangers Hero Port game.
Much like Skylanders, the figurines themselves utilizes RFID chips placing the figure on the port will unlock various games to play. According to RangerCrew blog the Hero Port game itself will include Super Megaforce Red and Blue Ranger already allowing for 6 levels and 18 missions in total. Of course, additional figures can be bought in two packs, amongst the first wave will be a Super Megaforce Silver and Yellow set along side a Green and Pink ranger set. Each set is priced at $10 according to the listings from amazon.uk.
The interesting thing? Unlike say Kamen Rider Summonride, the games will be built inside the control itself and will not require a major gaming platform to run.
Currently no word on a release date as of yet, we’ll bring more updates as it’s made available.
