This did release previously, but from what I can tell, the packaging now references ININ Games on the front. I'm unsure if there will be any other differences.

All characters from the Collector’s Edition, Seasons One, Two, Three and seven skins; Story and combat voiceovers are authentically performed by some of the members of the original Power Rangers cast
