Tokusatsu in review: Kamen Rider Yongou

…Well, to be Fair, they Contradicted canon all the time to begin with.

The retrospective comes to a close with a fighting game of Cyberconnect’s flagship franchise, and a theatrical feature chronicling the final tale of the Epitaph of Twilight.
Done in reverse order, of course.

Note: this was made before it was announced Cyberconnect2 was given outsourced work on Square-enix’s Final fantasy 7 Remake. Frankly, from all the other details revealed concerning that project at around the same time, that was the only highlight of them.
