Icon-kr.png This article is about a/an video game series in the Kamen Rider Series.

Kamen Rider: Battride War (仮面ライダーバトライド・ウォー Kamen Raidā Batoraido Wō) is a Japanese hack-and-slash video game developed by Eighting and Bandai Namco exclusively for the PlayStation 3. It is the first installment of the Battride War series of Kamen Rider Series games.

The game features all of the Heisei Era Riders up until Wizard. The game uses a 3D environment and the Riders also can use their respective Rider Machines to combat enemies and save the civilians. The game was released on May 23 2013.

A sequel, Kamen Rider: Battride War II, was released on June 24, 2014.[1]


An example of the gameplay's screen.

The game features an unique 3D beat 'em up system much like Tecmo Koei's Dynasty Warriors series and its related Warriors games, including Capcom's Sengoku Basara. The player can play as most of the Heisei Riders and use their Rider Machines to easily defeat enemies and avoid obstacles. It is also possible to go on missions where the player character must save the civilians. After battling some foot soldiers, the player will usually fight a boss in each stage. There are two bars on the top-left corner of the screen: a blue bar serving as a health bar and a yellow bar serving as an energy bar. To the right side of the screen is a map display, and on the lower-left corner a belt display much like the Climax Heroes series, but an accelerometer takes its place when riding a bike. Some of the Riders can freely switch between forms at no energy costs. A Rider's ultimate form, when triggered, will activate a special attack before resuming normal play. Ultimate forms drain the energy bar, and the player character will revert to his base form when the bar is depleted.

Game Modes

Chronicle Mode (クロニクルモード Kuronikuru Mōdo) is the game's story mode. The player must help the Riders regain their memories by reliving featured scenes from their respective season. Chronicle Mode is divided into chapters, which are further divided into sub-missions. The player can customize a Rider's abilities before playing through a mission. While playing, the player can also collect figures while dealing with enemies. Secondary Riders will sometimes assist the player during battles. The player must fight other main Riders in order to unlock them as they will be brought to Canaria, who proceeds to restore some of their memories after the battle.

At the end of each chapter, unless all objectives have been cleared, there is a boss battle. After each mission, the player character used will gain points that can be used to customize his abilities. As more missions and chapters are cleared, more playable characters are unlocked.

A new original character appears in this mode, Canaria (カナリア Kanaria) a golden bird-like spirit that will guide the player characters. A similar figure to Canaria but larger and black in color named Callas (カラス Karasu) serves as the main antagonist and rival, following the new user of the Eternal Memory and his mind-controlled Riders. Callas is the game's final boss, assuming the form of Kamen Rider Decade Violent Emotion.

In Free Mission Mode (フリーミッションモード Furī Misshon Mōdo), players can freely replay any mission they have completed with Riders they have unlocked so far. This mode is used to obtain figures that the player either missed or cannot obtain with the Riders selected during Chronicle Mode.

Rider Road Mode (ライダーロードモード Raidā Rōdo Mōdo) is the survival mode of the game. The player will be given 3 or more missions that need to accomplished, in which any Rider can be played. Rider Road is divided into any of the following parts:

  • Survival Road: The most common Road, in which there are no healing items and the player's health cannot be replenished.
  • Poison Road: The player's health gradually decreases.
  • Friendship Road: The player is partnered with a Secondary Rider.
  • Level 1 Road: The player's stats are reduced to those in Level 1.
  • Death Road: Enemies and bosses get a power boost.
  • Final Road: The most difficult road, a combination of the Survival and Death Roads.

  • This is the first Kamen Rider game released for the Playstation 3.
  • The first level is a recreation of Kamen Rider Decade's first episode, Rider War, down to the shots depicting the defeat of some Riotroopers.
  • This game is the first playable instance of a whole bunch of Rider forms:
    • First time in a game:
      • Wizard: All Dragon, Infinity Style
      • Beast (Rider Debut): Beast, Falco Mantle, Chameleo Mantle, Dolphi Mantle, Buffa Mantle, Beast Hyper.
      • Accel: Bike Form, Booster (Booster appeared as an attack only in Rider Generation 2).
    • First Time in Crossover Game:
      • Decade: First actual appearance of Complete Form's Final Attack Ride: Kuuga finisher, as it never appeared in the TV series.
      • Kiva: Garulu Form, Basshaa Form, Dogga Form
      • Den-O: Climax Form, Liner Form (Climax Form debuts as a fully playable character in Heroes VS, Liner was an attack since the first Climax Heroes game and makes a playable debut here).
      • Kabuto: Masked Form
      • Agito: Storm Form, Flame Form (Storm and Flame appeared in Rider Generation games as attacks only), Burning Form.
      • Kuuga: Rising forms, Amazing Mighty (all of the Rising forms debuted in Rider Generation 2, with Rising Mighty being fully playable, but Amazing Mighty was a special attack since the first Climax Heroes). 
  • Despite containing recreations of events in the TV series, there are a few differences setting them apart:
    • Kamen Rider Wizard: Phoenix wasn't thrown back by the Magical Portal when Wizard first transformed into his Flame Dragon form.
    • Kamen Rider Fourze: In the game, Fourze defeats the Sagittarius Zodiarts in his Basestates, without any last fight scene between Meteor and Leo Zodiarts. While in the series, Fourze defeated the Sagittarius Zodiarts in his Nova form. Also his Rider Kick wasn't done in the space but instead at the Earth and there is a last fight scene between Meteor and Leo Zodiarts.
    • Kamen Rider OOO: In the game, OOO defeats the Kyouryu Greeed in the real world on his own, while in the show it was within a Medal Vessel created from Uva with the assistance of Ankh. Also, the user of the Birth Driver in the game is Date, while in the series it was Goto, as Date was Proto-Birth at the time.
    • Kamen Rider W: In the game, Double defeats the Weather Dopant with a Bicker Charge Break; while in the show it is Accel who defeats him with the mastery of his Trial form.
    • Kamen Rider Decade: Decade finishes Super Apollogeist by using a regular Dimension Kick rather than using a Diend Card-powered Dimension Shoot as Decade Complete Form.
    • Kamen Rider Kiva: Instead of Dark Kiva using his Jacorder to hold the Bat Fangire in place so that Kiva Emperor could perform the Emperor Moon Break to deliver a fatal blow, the Bat Fangire orders the Rat Fangires to surround Kiva as he bursts out and performs an Emperor Moon Break unaided. The Rider Kick style is different as well, as this Emperor Moon Break was done in a Drill Kick manner instead of the traditional Flying Side Kick manner.
    • Kamen Rider Den-O: There is no aid from Past Man / elder Sakurai (as Zeronos Altair Form) when both Den-O and Zeronos battled the Albinoleo Imagin.
    • Kamen Rider Kabuto: In the game, the Cassis Worm changes from Dimidius directly to Clipeus without changing to Gladius. Also, Cassis Worm Clipeus is defeated by Gatack, KickHopper and PunchHopper in the series, rather than defeated by Hyper Kabuto as shown in game. However, Hyper Kabuto finishing off one of the Clipeus in the game is a reference to the defeat of Cassis Worm Gladius in the TV show, in which it also dies (along with lots of Salis Worms) when he was hit by a Maximum Hyper Cyclone, except unlike in TV without after Triple Rider Kick with Gatack and KickHopper before turning into a Hyper Form.
    • Kamen Rider Blade: Kenzaki did not fight Tachibana after he lost his power of Garren, then Kenzaki settles with Hajime in the first final battle was started with their primary Rider Form, later transformed in their upgrade form where Blade Jack Form is beaten by Wild Chalice in round 2, and then Blade turned into King Form and Chalice turned into Black Joker Undead in final round, however in the game Blade fights Garren first then Black Joker Undead (without transforming into Chalice) in round 1 without turning into an upgraded forms, later skip into round 3 after the Black Joker fled from round 1. At the final cutscene rather than untransformed into Kenzaki and him revealing a Chalice Rouser, Blade's green Undead blood leaked through his King Form arm glove with Joker watching him in horror.
    • Kamen Rider 555: When the Horse Orpnoch battles Faiz Blaster Form, his design was taken from the Paradise Lost movie. However, in the game, his design was the regular one. In TV show, they start up as a human form then become a Rider where Kiba is Kaixa after killing Kusaka in Round 1. On round 2, after their exceed charge clashed and revert them into human form, Inui and Kiba transformed into their Orphnoch Form as the last round 2 that Kiba transformed into a design from movie, continued with round 3 Inui revert into human form, transformed to Faiz and activate Blaster Form, and after defeating Kiba, he wants to kill him with his own Orphnoch sword but spared as Inui states that Kiba still had his humanity left to live as a human. The final scene against Arch Orphnoch is skipped after where Kiba regained his humanity.
    • Kamen Rider Ryuki: Though Ryuki's Mission title is similar to episode 40, the plot is very similar to episode 49. With that, instead of Knight holding Odin in place so that Ryuki can finish him with a Dragon Rider Kick, their position was reversed.
    • Kamen Rider Agito: Gills and Another Agito are also absent from the fight in-game.
    • Kamen Rider Kuuga: Rather than reverted to their human forms after breaking each others' Amadam, Kuuga and N-Daguva-Zeba deliver their final punch in their Ultimate Form and Perfect Form respectively.
  • There some odds or errors on gameplay or anything in the game:
    • Wizard able to change into All Dragon without the Drago Timer. Flame Dragon is also skipped.
    • Kiva Emperor Form's Emperor Moon Break is a drill-kick, rather than the usual drop-kick.
    • Cassiss Worm Clipeus had the appearance of Gladius Form instead.
    • Kuuga close card's color is always the color of Mighty Form. It should be changed depending on what form that you use lastly.
    • While playing as Fourze, Fourze is shown to be attacking with different Astroswitch combos. While that happens, on the bottom left corner, the Fourze Driver retains Rocket, Launcher, Drill, and Radar, with no change in switches when Fourze attacks.
  • Beast is the only playable Rider in the game not to have a Rider Machine as this is replaced with his Falco Mantle flying ability.
  • Den-O Super Climax Form model from Climax is a downgraded version in original Climax Form until the sequel.

The 14 Heisei Riders from Kuuga to Wizard standing together for the second time, now on TV.

  • Wizard standing alongside all of his Heisei Rider predecessors from Kuuga to Fourze is a sight that would later appear on-screen. The Heisei Riders appear in a special two-parter shown after Wizard's finale, consisting of the episodes The Ring of Kamen Rider and Neverending Story, which also serves to introduce Wizard's successor, the protagonist of Kamen Rider Gaim. The 13 previous Heisei Riders are summoned by Wizard via the Legend Rider Rings.
  • Most of all Neo-Heisei Era characters' voices (except Skull, Eternal (until the original actor, Mitsuru Matsuoka returned voicing the original Eternal in the game's sequel) and Double's right side (Philip)) are the only characters to be reprised by the original actors. While the only Heisei Era characters to be reprised by an original actors are:
    • Decade: Decade, Diend, Kiva-la, Super Apollogeist
    • Kiva: Ixa, Dark Kiva, Kivat-Bats, Tatsulot, and Reborn Bat Fangire
    • Den-O: Taros Imagins, New Den-O, Teddy, and Albinoleo Imagin
    • Kabuto: Gatack, and Cassis Worm
    • Blade: Blade, Garren, and Black Joker Undead
    • Ryuki: Ryuki and Odin
    • Agito: Agito and El of the Water
  • This game marks the final performance for Tsuyoshi Takeshita and Tomoyuki Dan who voiced Kabuto and Weather Dopant as they died in the year of the game's release.
  • Deneb's navigator file was found on disc. Ironically, his original voice actor Hochu Otsuka did not reprise his role as Deneb, instead just voicing Callas in this game only.
  • Coincidentally, all of the replacement voice actors to the characters in this game are affiliated with Aoni Production.
  • OOO's intro cut-scene doesn't show his knee pads as this error was never fixed in future installment.
