Chroma Squad, the RPG heavily inspired by Power Rangers, will launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in May 2017, publisher Bandai Namco has announced.

The previously-announced PlayStation Vita version has been canceled, however.

Chroma Squad sees players take control of a team comprised of five stunt actors who have quit their day jobs to create their own Power Rangers-esque television show. You'll have to purchase and upgrade equipment, craft weapons, and build giant mechs to engage in battles against monsters--all for the goal of achieving high TV viewer ratings.

The game, which is developed by Brazilian studio Behold, previously launched on PC in April 2015 following a successful Kickstarter campaign. It will cost $15 to download, with international pricing currently unknown.

In official Power Rangers news, the new movie adaptation, starring Dacre Montgomery, Naomi Scott, and Bryan Cranston, recently received a new trailer. The film is produced by Lionsgate, the film company behind big-name franchises such as The Hunger Games and John Wick, among others.

A multiplayer fighting game called Power Rangers: Legacy Wars is coming out alongside the movie for mobile devices in March. Another game, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Mega Battle, launched in January for PS4, Xbox One, and PC with basically no fanfare.
