Kamen Rider Decade (the newer Masked Rider in this game) was a 10th anniversary commemorative series for the Heisei Kamen Rider franchise that started in 2000 (the original Kamen Rider #1 was from the Showa KR franchise; Heisei and Showa are periods under the Japanese calendar, and Heisei year 1 = 1989), and definitely one of the better KR shows in recent years.

It's also the shortest amongst all the Heisei KR shows, at just 26 episodes. Typically a KR show runs for an entire year and ends at roughly the 52 episode mark.

The cool thing about Decade is that he can transform into any of the nine previous KR heroes and temporarily use their powers. So for instance, when you played the first stage of the game you saw a lot of KR Decade transforming into this sword guy, who is one of four forms of Kamen Rider Den-O (Sword Form). 

However, in the show, before he can freely transform into any of the past KR stars, he first has to go visit that particular KR hero in his homeworld - Decade's story is about him being amnesiac and visiting all these parallel worlds in search of his own homeworld - and solve that particular hero's predicament, which is usually an alternative take on what actually happened in that KR's original series (so if you've watched them all, there's something to look forward to).

The ending didn't really make sense, but it was a pretty cool series over all.

"It's a combination of anime and live-action tokusatsu games... not tonkatsu... tokusatsu. Which basically means like Special Effect shows."

I don't want to be rude for correcting them but "The Great Battle" is actually a series.. The first great battle was release as an NES game goes all the way up to the great battle 6 which was release on PS1. My personal favorite was The Great Battle 4 which was the first I've ever played on SNES.. I believe this is suppose to be an anniversary release for the great battle. They even have commercial for it. Its not a bad thing to not know about the game so try to get the fact straight next time =] thanks.

It would be perfect if this game have the whole characters in ultraman, gundam and mask rider (of course they're all in SD form/Chibi) and lastly if this is a fighting game like Marvel vs Capcom style, 3 vs 3.

Don't even try to bring this game out in North America.  Unfortunately, Games like this, do not sell well anymore over here.  I'd love to play it but I know for sure that this game would not sell.  Only games that sell well over here now are Call of Duty, GTA, Halo and basically other western developed or FPS games.

All I'll say is... I love the names that some of these Asian games get, specifically ones that I don't reckon the publishers ever expect to get a Western release.
