We are merely days away from the premiere of the 20th and final Heisei Era Kamen Rider series, and now we have been given a few quick shots at the upcoming adventures of Kamen Rider Zi-O!
The highlights from this months’ scans include-
*Kamen Rider Zi-O & his counterpart Kamen Rider Geiz testing out their new henshin belts and weapons. Zi-O uses the Zikan Gilade sword while Geiz controls the Zikan Zax crossbow. Zi-O’s unique motorcycle, the RideStriker is also on display, rounding out his arsenal.
*The monstrous AnotherRiders are shown in full! These are corrupted versions of past Kamen Riders awakened by the villainous TimeJackers. The AnotherRider versions of Kamen Rider Build and Kamen Rider Ex-Aid will be Zi-Os’ first proper opponents.
*By defeating the AnotherRiders, Zi-O will gain the Riders’ powers. We get to see the effects of this thanks to Zi-O’s Armor Time– channeling new forms based on the past Rider in question. The form detailed in this months’ scan is the Kamen Rider Ex-Aid RideArmor! In this new configuration Zi-O gains powerful punching attacks thanks to new piston weapons.
*Not to be outdone, Kamen Rider Geiz is shown obtaining the Kamen Rider Drive RideArmor! This new form grants Geiz powerful speed-kicks and control of Drive’s trademark ShiftCar.
*Looming over the Riders’ adventures is the sinister Demon King ZI-O! This figure is a golden corrupted version of Kamen Rider Zi-O from the same future as Kamen Rider Geiz- a world without hope ruled by a merciless king. Is this Zi-O’s ultimate fate? Only time will tell!
Kamen Rider Zi-O is officially scheduled to begin on September 2 2018! Stay tuned to TokuNation as we keep you up to date on this remarkable new Rider series!
