Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid
Earlier this week, a new Power Rangers game was announced, and it’s for the Nintendo Switch! It’s called Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid, and it will be released this April in Europe and North America. It’s described as a “cross-platform” fighting game, and does offer full cross-platform support (not just multiplayer, but also progress is shared between versions).
The game is already available for pre-purchase on the official website, with the Green Ranger V2 character skin and a digital art book offered as pre-order bonus. There’s also a Digital Collector’s Edition sold $39.99, that includes the following:
- full game download
- Season One Pass (which will include three new characters, their Arcade story, and a new warrior skin)
- exclusive Lord Drakkon Evo II and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Pink Ranger character skins.
Here’s the debut trailer and some details, along with some screenshots:
Power Ranger: Battle for the Grid is an easy to learn but hard to master fighting game that delivers a modern take on the Power Rangers franchise. The game features stunning graphics with vivid details and pits new and classic Rangers and villains against each other in team battles. Featuring a streamlined combat system, the game welcomes newcomers to the genre with simplified controls, while maintaining depth and detail for more intense and experienced competitors. Players will be challenged to test their skills online against friends and other players around the world, providing endless replayability. With new content and game modes releasing throughout the year, the game will continuously offer the community new ways to play and compete.
With cross-play across multiple platforms, all players whether on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch or PC, will be in the same player pool and will have the ability to compete against each other in real-time. Even when players change their platform, their mission progress they have worked to achieve will still be available to them, allowing for cross-progression and true seamless gameplay no matter where they play.
Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid (Switch – eShop) comes out this April in Europe and North America. The Upcoming Games page has been updated!

R.B.I. Baseball 19
Thanks to a rating on the website of the ESRB, we already know that the latest entry in the R.B.I. Baseball series will be released on Nintendo Switch. To the surprise of no one, it’s called R.B.I. Baseball 19, and… that’s pretty much all we know about it. The listing seemingly confirms a (partial?) lack of online features, as only the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions have a “Users Interact” mention. A proper announcement / reveal is expected within the next few weeks!
R.B.I. Baseball 19 (Switch) does not have a release date yet. The Upcoming Games page has been updated!
