Kamen Rider Dark Drive Type Next Magazine Reveal 001

Previously spotted on set  while filming has been underway for the Kamen Rider Drive Surprise Future movie, we finally have a full reveal of the rider who commands the NEX Tridoron!

Kamen Rider Dark Drive Type Next is as the name implies an evil rider from the future, the year 2035! Dark Drive uses his powers to help Roidmudes attack humans and has the Shift Next Builder, Next Hunter, and Next Decotraveler Cars at his disposal!

Dark Drive’s personal Shift Car Next/Special allows for two separate forms to be used. Will Dark Drive be redeemed and use Type Special to save the past and the future? Or will the present Drive be able to harness it’s power? Find out this summer!

Kamen Rider Ghost Trademark

After a number of false starts and fake leads, it seems we finally have a name for the 17th Heisei Kamen Rider!

Toei has filed a trademark for the name Kamen Rider Ghost! The new series and toyline will replace Kamen Rider Drive on shelves & airwaves later this year.

Sadly, no other information about Kamen Rider Ghost is available at the time of writing. Feel free to join in our ongoing Kamen Rider Rumor Discussion to share your hopes, dreams and fears about this upcoming project!

Drive Type Tridoron 1

A new round of magazine scans has been posted online, giving us our first official look at Kamen Rider Drive’s final form- Type Tridoron!

Type Tridoron is unlocked using the Shift Tridoron Shift Car and allows Drive to fuse multiple Shift Cars with a new ability called Tire Kakimazeru or Mix-Up.

In addition the scans show a new form for the villainous Roimudes– a modified golden frame known as Cho Shinkatai (meaning Super-Evolved Body).

Things are taking a strange turn during Kamen Rider Drive’s final laps! Stay tuned to TokuNation as we keep you up to date on all Drive details!
