Power Rangers Hyperforce (stylized as HyperForce) is an interactive live-streamed tabletop role-playing game web series from Saban Brands and Hyper RPG based on the long-running American children's television program Power Rangers. The show was announced at TwitchCon 2017 and premiered on October 24, 2017, on Hyper RPG's Twitch.tv live-streaming channel and includes members of the Power Rangers franchise along with other Internet personalities. It is overseen by Malika Lim as Game Master.[1] Power Rangers Hyperforce is published on Hyper RPG's Twitch.tv live-streaming channel and YouTube channel. Power Rangers Hyperforce is also published in an audio podcast format by Hyper RPG through SoundCloud, Google Play, iTunes and Spotify. Rangers from past seasons of Power Rangers will guest star occasionally, including Erin Cahill (of Power Rangers Time Force). Hyper RPG developed a Twitch extension that allows viewers of the show to select a Ranger from the show and tie that Ranger to their unique ID. They are then able to send the Ranger on daily missions, boss battles, and raids. Currently one season consisting of 25 episodes is planned.

Plot[edit]

Power Rangers Hyperforce is set in the year 3016 at 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.[2]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Each episode is allotted around 3 hours for the Rangers to complete that episode's story. Due to the nature of how tabletop role-playing games work however this time will often vary episode to episode dependent upon how quickly the Game Master and Rangers progress through the story.
  2. ^ Titles are not present for episodes when they first premiere on Hyper RPG's Twitch.tv live-streaming channel. Titles only become available once the episode is subsequently uploaded to Hyper RPG's Youtube channel the following week.
