The latest Kamen Riders Reveal Fortnite and Apex Legends References
Toei Company finally revealed the next Kamen Rider after a trademark registration and weeks-long rumours. Kamen Rider geats will be the next series. It will debut in 2022. Geats is the 33rd Kamen Rider Series and the fourth Rider in the Reiwa Era.
Geats were first revealed on the poster and synopsis of the Kamen Rider Winter Movie. This will be a crossover between the new hero and the current Rider Kamen Rider Revise. This will be the second appearance of Geats on the upcoming movie Kamen Rider Revise : Battle Familia. Then, Kamen Rider Geats will air in Japan on September 2, 2022.
The poster unveiling was followed by an official website on TV Asahi that gave us a better view of Geats and a synopsis of his series. The Kitsune motif on his mask is based on Japanese myths about supernatural, shapeshifting Fox Yokai. The neck of his armour has what appears to be three tomoe. This design is sometimes referred to as the Mitsudomoe. It may also be related to Amaterasu, the Japanese goddess of the sun. Geats’ Rider scarf continues the motif, which looks like the kitsune’s tail.
The rest of Geats uses a stylish white and red colour scheme, split into two halves. His white top part gives way to his Rider belt. The red bottom part transitions into his leg armour with exhaust pipes. This two-toned theme suggests that Geats draw on two sources for power, similar to previous Riders Kamen Rider W and Kamen Rider Builder.
The poster shows the name of Geats’ belt, the Desire Driver. According to the official site’s synopsis, Hidetoshi will don the Desire Driver to compete at the Desire Grand Prix. People transform into Kamen Riders to defeat monsters or save others from winning. How will they succeed? What about the possibility of creating the world they want? That’s just right.
