While a lot of Kamen Rider games often revolve around a single series or a crossover of multiple titles, Kamen Rider: Memory of Heroez sets itself apart in being a crossover of specifically three series: Kamen Rider Zero-One, Kamen Rider OOO, and Kamen Rider W. Although occurring at an unspecified point in either series’ timeline, Memory of Heroez begins when a disaster befalls the touristy Sector City, where Kamen Rider Zero-One, Kamen Rider W, và Kamen Rider OOO have khổng lồ team up to lớn discover the identity of the mysterious “Professor Aida,” who is connected lớn the incident.

Despite its age, Seigi no Keifu remains iconic for both its dark tone & rather unique gameplay, especially for its rather forgotten crossover premise.

However, what sets the trò chơi apart is a slight ARG component, where players can only use special attacks based on the cards handed lớn them, the set of which depends on the said Rider’s Advent Deck. Due to lớn the “similar” nature of thẻ classes, some characters bởi have default versions of special attacks, such as quái nhân summons (Advents), weapons (Strike/Sword, etc.), shields (Guards), specials (Uniques) và Rider Finishers (Final Vent).
It’s one thing for a Kamen Rider series khổng lồ feature multiple Riders, và another thing entirely to have these Riders frequently fight each other in flashy combat.
