I thought we’d finally put the 90s behind us. MTV music videos, Friends, lesbian Buffy witches, bizarre-ass cartoons like Ren and Stimpy and Rocko’s Modern Life, dickish ‘attitude’ (which had to be pronounced ‘tude)… like any awful life decision you bitterly regret later, we’ve been through it. We did our time, we made our peace with it, and it’s only brought up again during family reunions.

Hey, Chris, remember when your hair was shit? Yes, yes I do.

The thing about nostalgia is, you’re only supposed to be looking fondly back at the things that didn’t suck ass. That’s kinda how it works. So what the hell are you doing, game devs? Was the world really desperate for a Biker Mice from Mars video game to hit mobile? You’re just opening up old wounds here, herpes wounds or something.

Still. This is the way of the gaming world, and you’ve just got to pull up your pants and accept that. So, I guess, if you must resurrect 90s icons, you could do a whole lot worse than the Power Rangers.

Everyone knows these dudes. There’s the red one, the leader and awesome all-round best, and then there’s the other ones. The mighty morphers have appeared in their share of games over the years, the best probably being 1994’s SNES and Genesis scrolling brawler Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Remember that? If not, it’s being reborn on current-gen consoles next year, as MMPR: Mega Battle.

If this Ye Olde genre of game is still your bag, you’ll want to take an ogle at Bandai Namco's announcement trailer above.
