Tonight is the big premiere of Power Rangers Hyperforce, and you can watch it right here!
All you have to do is scroll up a bit and you'll find the feed for Hyper RPG. You can catch the episode right here at 6 pm PST (8 pm CST), which will feature three hours of tabletop roleplaying entertainment.
What is Power Rangers Hyperforce you ask? It's a unique partnership between Saban, Hyper RPG, and Twitch, which will include a cast of Power Ranger favorites and internet personalities roleplaying as a new group of Rangers. The rules haven't been announced, but GM (game master) Malika Lim will likely lay all of that out at the beginning of the episode.
Hyperforce is set in the year 3016, where a group of Time Force Academy students must team up to defeat an ancient evil who is unraveling the fabric of the universe. In other words, not a nice person. The Rangers will attempt to stop it under the leadership of their mentor Jen Scott.
This team of Rangers includes Marvin, Eddie, Chloe, Vesper, and Jack. Marvin is the Red Ranger and will be played by Peter Sudarso (Blue Ranger Power Rangers Ninja Steel). Eddie the Blue Ranger will be played by Andre of Black Nerd Comedy. Chloe the Pink Ranger will be played by Meghan Camarena (social media personality), while Paulie Schrier will play Jack the Yellow Ranger (Bulk from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers). Rounding out the cast is Cristina Vee, who will play Vesper the Black Ranger (actress, social media personality).
While not much is known about their individual characters (since they will be made up as time goes on) the team is based on Greek mythology. The Red Ranger is based on Iapetus (Lion), while the Blue Ranger is based on Oceanus (Serpent). The Pink Ranger is based on Hyperion (Phoenix), while the Black Ranger is based on Coeus (Cerberus). Finally, the Yellow Ranger is based on Crius (Ram).
