Toei has recently revealed that a spin-off series, based on Kamen Rider Shinobi, is to be produced!
The Kamen Rider Zi-O spin-off, Rider Time: Shinobi, will be made available at the end of March thanks to the Toei Tokusatsu Fan Club. The spin-off series will see Tawada Hideya reprise his role Kagura Rentaro/Kamen Rider Shinobi from episodes 17 and 18 of Kamen Rider Zi-O.
Within the series, Kamen Rider Shinobi is one of the Kamen Riders from the future that Sougo and his friends interact with. Kamen Rider Shinobi comes from the year 2022. The spin-off series is said to reveal the true nature of the character not seen in the main show. It will be directed by Kamen Rider Drive director, Shibasaki Takayuki.
Fans are also told to look forward to a spin-off that will be announced at the Super Hero Festival KAMEN RIDER X SUPER SENTAI LIVE SHOW 2019 concert event, which will be held at the Nippon Budokan on January 23rd, 2019. The new production will be made available via the Video Pass streaming service in Japan.
Information of a second spin-off has led fans to question whether the work will feature Kamen Rider Zi-O’s latest visitor from the future, Kamen Rider Quiz.
It was announced recently that Kamen Rider Quiz will be portrayed by Suzuki Katsuhiro, whom Super Sentai fans may recognise as Sakurada Hiromu/Red Buster from Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters.
