Power Rangers: Battle For The Grid has received a sizable update today. This free Power Rangers: Battle For The Grid update includes a story mode, new stages, and voiceovers from many of the original actors.

He eventually overthrows and kills main villain Rita Repulsa, as well as Zordon, Red Ranger Jason Scott, and Blue Ranger Billy Cranston. He eventually attains power that is a combination of his original counterpart’s Green Dragon and White Tiger powers. The story mode part of the Power Rangers: Battle For The Grid update is an adaption of this storyline. In addition, this story will feature voiceovers from many original cast members. It will include Jason David Frank (Tony Oliver/Lord Drakkon), Austin St. John (Jason Lee Scott), David Fielding (Zordon), and Kerrigan Mahan (Goldar).
