Ever since news broke out about the confirmation of the Kamen Rider Brand’s next installment, Kamen Rider Ghost back in late April, fans have been itching to see the first reveal of the 17th Heisei Hero. I dare say that it was well worth the wait!
With the utilization of his unique tool for transformation, the Ghost Driver and “Ghost Eyecon”, this Rider brings a sleek design to the table. Along with the famous, modern bug eyes, he sports a black and orange color scheme– very fitting for the month of October. As the art demonstrates, when the Ghost Eyecon is activated, a hooded ghost will appear and cloak the user of the Rider System, completing the change by adding the matching hooded jacket, which is a very nice touch.
Kamen Rider Ghost is scheduled to premier October 4th, but here is a chance we may see him sooner. It is rumored that Ghost will make a traditional Neo-Heisei cameo appearance in the new Summer Movie, Kamen Rider Drive: Surprise Future. Let’s hope it’s true, because I’m excited to see a demo of this new Rider’s abilities. The next we expect is the reveal of the actor to play the role of the civilian.
What do you think of the design of the new Kamen Rider Ghost? Let us know your thoughts! HENSHIN!
