Power Rangers + Hyper RPG Announce Official Tabletop Role-Playing Game on Twitch

In celebration of Saban’s Power Rangers’ 25th Anniversary, Saban Brands and Hyper RPG announce today Power Rangers HyperForce, the first licensed property to offer an official interactive, tabletop role-playing game (RPG), streaming live on Hyper RPG, an industry leading channel on Twitch, the world’s leading social video service and community.

The Power Rangers HyperForce show will premiere with a morphinominal cast on Tuesday,October 24, 2017 from 6 p.m. PT – 9 p.m. PT and live on www.twitch.tv/hyperrpg. Airing weekly, each of the 25 episodes for the 25 th anniversary celebration will provide three hours of tabletop role playing and real-time interaction with the franchise’s dedicated, global fan base.

Developed by Saban Brands and Hyper RPG, Power Rangers HyperForce is set in the year 3016 at the Time Force Academy. A team of Time Force Ranger cadets must band together to defeat an ancient evil who is set on unraveling the very fabric of the universe. Under the leadership of their mentor, Jen Scotts, and with the show’s Game Master, Malika Lim, the newly minted Rangers will cross both time and space to complete their mission while running into many familiar eras (and faces) along the way. The stakes have never been higher as the players learn what it means to be a Ranger in a live, tabletop RPG environment where anything can happen.

Hyper RPG has developed a Twitch Extension that will allow viewers to select a Ranger that is permanently tied to the user’s unique ID. Viewers will be able to send their Ranger out on daily
missions, boss battles, and raids, as well as trade cool loot with other players. As viewers level up their Ranger, avatars will unlock energy that can be gifted to the players live on screen. Truly interactive, the show’s viewers can be the final push that gives a player on screen the help they need in the fight against evil to save the world!

The Power Rangers RPG game cast includes Peter Sudarso (the Blue Ranger in Power Rangers Ninja Steel,) Andre “Black Nerd Comedy” (Power Rangers Superfan and popular content creator), Meghan Camarena (popular social media personality, Strawburry17), Paulie Schrier (fan-favorite “Bulk” in Power Rangers) and Cristina Vee (actress and social media personality). Throughout the series, special guests will join the cast including Erin Cahill (Pink Ranger, Power Rangers Time Force) for the premiere episode.

Earlier this year in promotion of 2017’s feature film with Lionsgate, Twitch ran a seventeen-day long Power Rangers marathon on its Twitch Presents channel and streamed all 23 seasons and
831 episodes of the television series. This was one of Twitch’s most successful campaigns to date with nearly 13MM channel views and 7.4MM chat messages. Based on the success of this
digital initiative, Power Rangers, Hyper RPG and Twitch are teaming up as part of the Power Rangers’ year-long celebration of the franchise’s 25th anniversary.

Created by Haim Saban and launched in 1993, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers quickly became a pop culture phenomenon. Today, Power Rangers is one of the longest running kids live-action series in television history. The series, currently in its 24th season with Power Rangers Ninja Steel, and subsequent movies, including 2017’s feature film with Lionsgate, follows the adventures of a group of ordinary teens who morph into superheroes and save the world from evil. Power Rangers currently airs in 150 markets around the world and is translated into numerous languages.

“Following Power Rangers’ successful marathon on Twitch, we are combining forces with the industry leading team at Hyper RPG to bring Power Rangers fans a tabletop role-playing game
experience like never before,” said Janet Hsu, CEO at Saban Brands. “We are overwhelmingly excited to bring a new Power Rangers story live to Twitch. We are putting everything we have learned in the last three years of livestreaming tabletop RPGs into this, it’s literally the coolest thing we have ever had the pleasure to work on!” said Zac Eubank, CEO at Hyper RPG.
