Tonight was the annual Toei press conference introducing the world to the newest Kamen Rider series- Kamen Rider Geats!
This new series is built around the DESIRE GRAND PRIX where Riders fight for the chance to remake the world.
The first four contestants in the Desire Grand Prix are:
*Kamen Rider Geats– real name “Ace” Ukiyo Hidetoshi (portrayed by Kan Hideyoshi) is a mysterious but determined young man whose reasons for joining the Grand Prix will be revealed as the series progresses.
*Kamen Rider Tycoon– real name Kagekazu Sakurai (played by Riya Sato) is an unemployed college student who dreams of world peace.
*Kamen Rider Naago– real name Kurama Neon (played by Yumena Hoshino) is a social media influence from a celebrity family, who wishes for an ordinary life.
*Kamen Rider Buffa– real name Azuma Michinage (played by Toyo Kazuto) is a fighter who sees Geats as his greatest rival.
At least 3 more Riders were seen in the conference trailer but their identities have not been confirmed at time of writing.
The Riders will have some guides through their adventures-
*Tsumuri (played by Qingdao Heart) is the navigator for the Desire Grand Prix; her responsibility is to meet new Riders and introduce the rules of combat.
*Giroli– (played by Shugo Oshinari) is the concierge of the Temple of Desire, who oversees the participants of the Grand Prix.
Music for this series will be provided by Koda Kumi and Shonan no Kaze– the group known for the Kamen Rider Gaim theme Just Live More.
Kamen Rider Geats begins on September 4 2022!
