We finally have the redesigned Kamen Rider #1!
Takeshi Hongo, still portrayed by Hiroshi Fujioka, is Kamen Rider #1 who has received an upgrade along with his motorcycle. He is called the leader of the Kamen Riders and has been fighting evil for 45 years. Currently, he’s here to protect Tobei Tachibana’s granddaughter Mayu.
The film will feature two main antagonistic factions: Shocker and Nova Shocker. Shocker is led by Ambassador Hell and features monsters such as the Lizardman. They aim to takeover the world. Nova Shocker is made up of ex-Shocker monsters such as Igura, Urga, and Buffal. They want to control the world’s economy.
Nao Nagasawa will portray Igura, Tsuyoshi Abe will portray Urga, and Kozo Takeda will portray Buffal. All three were previously rumoured to be portraying Nova Shocker commanders and it seems that has come to pass!
Also of note is that the Shocker Grunts also got a noticeable upgrade from the few images!
The next series of Legend Rider Souls specials will feature Fourze, OOO, and Wizard.
You should be able to find the first Legend Rider Souls -Drive fairly easily.
We thank Kamenriderghost on Tumbler for the news!
