Its protagonists are able to transform into not only their own unique forms, but also all of the previous 34 Super Sentai teams, each of which have their own unique power that the Gokaigers can access. The series also features reappearances of actors reprising their characters from the previous series.

On July 30, 2010, Toei applied for trademarks on the title Kaizoku Sentai Gōkaijā to be used on various products. The Japan Patent Office approved these trademarks on August 26, 2010. During the Super Sentai VS Theatre programming on December 26, 2010, the series was officially announced in a commercial. A Tokyo Dome City event for the premiere, serving as the introduction of the cast and theme song singers to the public, held on January 29 and 30, 2011.Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger began airing in South Korea on July 2012 as Power Rangers Captain Force. Its footage is being used for the American Power Rangers season Power Rangers Super Megaforce.

A group of young pirates come from space to Earth to obtain the “Greatest Treasure in the Universe”, which can only be acquired after obtaining the “Greater Powers” of the different 34 Super Sentai Teams. However, they end up facing the Space Empire Zangyack, whose earlier invasion forces were wiped out by the 34 Sentai groups long ago before a new invasion force is established under Commander Warz Gill, the emperor’s son. As a result, due to their history with the empire, the space pirates use the powers of the older teams and attempt to master their powers to fight the Zangyack forces as the Gokaigers.
