All Articles: Chroma Squad

Xbox Store Today: Chroma Squad, Shadow Warrior 2, The Last Blade, more

It’s “90s Day” on the Xbox Games Store today, and that’s because three games inspired by the grungy decade are now available to download for the Xbox One.

That inspiration is front and center in Bandai Namco’s Chroma Squad, which uses “Inspired by Saban’s Power Rangers” right in its marketing. The tactical RPG follows five actors who want to create their own show like Power Rangers… but then an actual alien invasion throws a wrench into their plans.

Also available to download today is Shadow Warrior 2 from Flying Wild Hog. The “offbeat” shooter sequel features the “further misadventures” of Lo Wang as he lives out his days as a reclusive mercenary. Finally today, Xbox One owners will be able to download The Last Blade, a fighting game from SNK that was originally released in 1997.

You can learn more about all of these games (and a few other new releases) after the break. (more…)

Injustice 2, Chroma Squad, The Surge, more added to PS Store

The heroes and villains of the DC Universe collide once more in Injustice 2, which is now available to download for the PS4. Developed by NetherRealm Studios, the sequel introduces a new antagonist (the planet collector Brainiac) and a customizable Gear System.

Also available to download for the PS4 this week (on Friday) is Chroma Squad, a strategy RPG heavily inspired by the Power Rangers franchise, and The Surge, a new Souls-like action RPG from Focus Home Interactive and Deck 13.

As usual, a smattering of other games were also added to the PlayStation Store including Akiba’s Beat (PS4 and Vita), an action RPG from Acquire; Shadow Warrior 2 (PS4), a goofy FPS sequel from Flying Wild Hog; Farpoint (PS4), a PlayStation VR-powered shooter from Sony; and Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas (Vita), an overhead action RPG that is rather reminiscent of The Legend of Zelda.

Chroma Squad will be available for PS4 and Xbox One this May

Bandai Namco has announced that Chroma Squad, a tactical RPG inspired by Power Rangers that’s currently available through Steam, will be released for the PS4 and Xbox One in May.

Developed by Brazilian-based Behold Studios, Chroma Squad features “five high-flying stunt actors who decide to quit their day jobs and create their own Power Rangers TV show.” But somewhere along the way, they stumble into a real alien invasion and make it their job to save the Earth.

Bandai Namco had previously announced that Chroma Squad was also in development for the Vita, but the portable rendition of the game was officially canceled by the publisher today.
