Today, publisher Bandai Namco and Brazil-based developer Behold Studios announced that tactical RPG Chroma Squad, which is inspired by Saban’s Power Rangers, is set to finally release for PS4 and Xbox One sometime in May.
As you may know, Chroma Squad first released for PC back in April 2015, where it garnered an “overwhelmingly positive” overall user review score on Steam. The game was also slated to release on PlayStation Vita, but alongside today’s release window announcement, Bandai Namco revealed the title is no longer coming to the Sony handheld.
For those that don’t know, in Chroma Squad players take control of five high-flying stunt actors who decide to quit their day jobs and create their own Power Rangers TV show. Here’s an overview, courtesy of the game’s Steam listing:
Chroma Squad is a tactical RPG about five stunt actors who decide to quit their jobs and start their own Power Rangers-inspired TV show!
