This hero video game based on the television series Kamen Rider Series retains the idea borrowed from said series of utilizing advent cards in battle, as well as summoning beasts to your aid. The game releases on November 17th for the Wii, but we’ve got some news as to the playable characters to be featured on the Wii version for the time being.

The new characters cover ranged attackers, fast attackers, combo specialists and more. Each character has their own attack method, most of which are specific by the advent cards and respective attacks.
