Today, Toei held the official press conference for the 42nd Super Sentai series, Kaitou Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger. Now, as we have reported countless times Lupinranger VS Patranger will be the first time a Super Sentai series focuses on two different teams. The first team, the Lupinrangers, are thieves named after Arsene Lupin, and seek to acquire the Lupine Collection, powerful items that can shape or destroy the world. The Lupinrangers hope that the acquisition of the Lupin Collection will allow them to save someone they lost. The second team, the Patrangers, are apart of the International Special Police Organization seeking to protect the Lupin Collection. However, as the two teams face-off with one another they will also have to face the crime organization, Gangler.
