At the time of this posting there is no official announcement (aside from a brief commercial) from Toei. As soon as we get updates (when it comes out, etc.) we’ll update the story.

Since the initial announcement, a slew of new photographs along with a trailer for the special were both released .
The images reveal a secondary Kamen Rider from the timeline addition to some supporting characters and villains. Although not much has been translated as of this writing, we do know that the orange fellow is called Kamen Rider Hattari and he’ll serve as a rival for Shinobi.
The YouTube trailer for this is, unfortunately, region locked but you can bypass this by viewing it on the official Zi-O Twitter account, make the jump here.

Meet Rentaro Kamikura AKA: Kamen Rider Shinobi!
A few days ago, a slew of scans dropped giving us a glimpse at what Kamen Rider Zi-O had in store for us in the new year. The centerpiece of the scans were the three Kamen Riders of the future: Kamen Rider Woz, Kamen Rider Quiz, and Kamen Rider Shinobi. It came as a bit of surprise to learn that Quiz and Shinobi will not only be getting full-on stunt suits but story arcs of their own including their own Another Rider versions!
In another update, we now know that Kamen Rider Shinobi will be portrayed by Super Sentai alumni Hideya Takada better known in our little circle for having portrayed Kinji Takigawa/StarNinjger from Shuriken Sentai Nininger.
Kamen Rider Shinobi’s human identity will be known as Rentaro Kamikura, though much of his character and backstory remain a mystery. With this recent announcement, it stands to reason that Kamen Rider Quiz will most likely be getting his own civilian form as well though nothing has been announced at the time of this writing. Stay tuned though, and we’ll be sure to keep you updated as more info becomes available.

*Centerpiece of this month’s spread is Kamen Rider Woz! Using a new model Driver known as the BeyonDriver, Woz has his own unique brand of RideWatches called MiraiWatches that power his distinctive abilities. Kamen Rider Woz’s signature weapon- the Zikan DeSpear is also displayed in full.
To assist in his quest, Kamen Rider Woz summons two BRAND-NEW Kamen Riders!
*Kamen Rider Quiz is a blue & red Rider from the year 2040 with skills linked to intelligence.
*Kamen Rider Shinobi is a purple Rider from the year 2022 with the power to control elements and perplex enemies with swift movements.
Both Riders appear to fight alongside Kamen Rider Zi-O & Kamen Rider Gates against their respective AnotherRider counterparts.
*Finally, Zi-O gains another upgrade to his powers- combining the Kamen Rider OOO RideWatch with the Kamen Rider Decade RideArmor to unlock Kamen Rider Zi-O Decade OOO Form– based on Kamen Rider OOO’s signature TaJaDoru Combo.
Definitely some exciting times ahead for this adventurous Rider series! Stay tuned to TokuNation as we keep you up to date on all Kamen Rider reveals.
1st Full Body Image of Kamen Rider Woz
As seen over on Hero Shock, we have our first full length look at Kamen Rider Woz! While we’ve known for a couple of months that Woz would be getting his own set of Rider powers, we still don’t know what episode of Kamen Rider Zi-O that Woz will display his abilities in for the first time.
Using the Beyondriver, Kamen Rider Woz will use a special type of Ride Watch called MiRide Watches to access the powers of riders from the future. The future Kamen Riders, Shinobi, Quiz & Kikai that Woz draws his powers from have also yet to appear in the show, if they will at all. We should have our next batch of episode summaries coming up in the near future, so confirmation on Woz’s first transformation should come in the near future.
