Kamen Rider Wizard: Name Confirmed Plus Rumors!!!

From Toku Insider:

Our next Kamen Rider Series will be called Kamen Rider Wizard.

Here's some rumors on the toyline, which includes rumors for the second Rider.

Name- Kamen Rider Wizard (notated WiZardO)

Personal Belt- Wizard Driver

Personal Collectible- Wiseman Rings

Personal Weapon- Senyou Shakkujou WizdoRod (Personal Bishop Staff WizdoRod)

Personal Bike- Machine Wizardry

-The Wiseman Rings are set into the WizardDriver in the form of a crown. There are IC Chips built into the rings, and they are notated with the first letter of the attribute they represent. (The Fire Ring has an F, the Water Ring has a W, etc...) The WizdoRod can also have Rings set into it.

-Name of enemy is "Phantom"

-Similar to the Imajin of Den-O, Wizard will have Subcharacter contract monsters named "Homunculus". When Wizard form changes, he sets certain rings in the WizdoRod to change. However, if he holds up an WisemanRing to one of his Homunculus, they too can undergo a form change, taking on the property of that attribute.

-2nd Rider will be called "Kamen Rider Dice"

-Personal Belt- DiceDriver

-Personal Bike- Machine RollingStone

-Personal Collectible- Wiseman Dice (A 6 faced die, with a built in IC Chip. Each face holds a different attribute, like Wizard's Wiseman Rings.)

-A "Wiseman Ring Dictionary" will be released to store the Wiseman Rings in. The Dictionary has spaces for 25 rings.

-The name of Wizard's Homunculus Partner is Edgar. The name of Dice's Homunculus Partner is Alfred. Wizard uses his rings to transforms the Homunculus; Dice uses his Die. (If this is true, it's obvious what anime this Rider series is paying tribute to.)

-Kamen Rider Dice is spelled "Kamen Rider dICe" in reference to the IC system this year entails

-Dice's personal weapon is the "DiceGod", a brass knuckle type weapon, contains 4 IC sensors in the fingers. When you "roll the die" you active a finishing move.

-Wizard's world is linked with OOO's world. 800 years ago marked the creation of the Greeds and OOO. Likewise, the Homunculus and  Wizard were created 800 years ago. World view of the show is like Kiva, but there will be no time shifts/different eras.

-One of Wizard's Wiseman Rings is the "Bloom Ring". If Machine Wizardry is touched with the Bloom Ring, it assumes a Flight Mode.

Plans for Next Year

Fury Diamond of RangerCrew has a well detailed article about Saban's Plans for next year's series as well as the 20th Anniversary.

You can read it here:

Here's just an overview of what was talked about:

-Saban plans on having a campaign for the "Super Fans" (older fans). It will involve a re-doing of Power and make it more interactive.

-Saban Brands has also acquired the Saturday morning 4Kids block and plans to air 1-2 episodes of Power Rangers starting this fall! It will most likely and definitely be from MMPR-RPM and possibly Samurai/Super Samurai. This could also be the future home of Power Rangers in 2015 once the 2014 contract with Nick is up. And thank God, because airing only 20 episodes a year is just too cruel and would put us years behind of the Sentai if continued.

-Saban Brands and the Cast of Power Rangers Samurai will be at Comic-Con once again this year. They will also be promoting the Power Rangers 20th Anniversary, which will also include the first teaser for next year's Power Rangers Megaforce!

-Both Saban and the Samurai Cast will be at Power Morphicon this year! This is exciting news once again. The Megaforce teaser will also be shown there too.

-As mentioned before, Saban Brands plans on creating a website exclusively for the Power Rangers 20th Anniversary. It has been stated that the Anniversary will start as early as January 2013. It will include some surprises and giveaways.

-The Megaforce Rangers will appear in this year's Thanksgiving Day Parade, much like the Samurai Rangers did back in 2010, to promote the premiere.

-Power Rangers Megaforce will air in 2013 and 2014, consisting of 20 episodes with 2 specials each year.

- Lionsgate plans on releasing Samurai boxed sets later down the line. So that's good news!

-Gokaiger was not chosen because they simply cannot skip a Sentai series, just as some expected. We may see the Gokaigers in 2014 possibly or something that has to do with them.

Please read the full article for more details as to what will be happening over the next year:

Power Rangers Megaforce Mega Bloks Revealed
