Leading interactive entertainment company BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe today announced that GODZILLA has emerged from his long slumber to once again deliver massive destruction to cities and vanquish classic enemies on both the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system (digital only).
Developed by Japanese videogame studio NATSUME ATARI INC., GODZILLA gives players control of one of the most famous and destructive Kaiju (special effects monsters) in entertainment history. As Godzilla, players will have the power to trample and lay waste to cities. Players will also have to collect G-Energy which can be used to power-up Godzilla, increasing his physical size as well as his offensive and defensive skills. Exclusively on the PlayStation®4 system, users can play as ANY Kaiju in the game, in any mode in the game! Collect G-Energy to max out your favorite Kaiju’s stats, and destroy opponents online with your Kaiju, in your battle style. Choose from over 20 Kaiju, from classics like Anguirus and Rodan, as well as more recent kaiju like Type-3 Kiryu. There are many different Godzilla in the game as well, from Godzilla (1964) (as seen in “Mothra vs. Godzilla”) and Heisei Godzilla, to Godzilla (2014) (“Hollywood Godzilla”).
GODZILLA will also allow players to recreate the thrill of watching the classic and modern films by utilizing a dynamic movie-style camera angle system. This system delivers the most epic camera angles, giving players the best view from which to destroy both a multitude of locations as well as classic enemies such as Mothra, King Ghidorah, and Mechagodzilla.
“For over 60 years Godzilla has sparked the imaginations of millions of fans and has been one of Japan’s most famous and favorite pop culture exports to the West. With the GODZILLA videogame we’re allowing his fans to play as their favorite monster and truly feel his incredible strength and destructive power.” said Hervé Hoerdt, Vice President of Marketing & Digital at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe.
GODZILLA features multiple game modes including; Destruction Mode where players can deal massive amounts of mayhem and lay waste to more than 20 different stages. Diorama Mode allows players to place models of Godzilla and the other kaiju in different settings to capture epic photos (uses SHARE function on the PlayStation®4 system). Players can also enjoy the King of Kaiju Mode where Godzilla fights his way through a gauntlet of the franchise’s most famous monster enemies to reach the top of the Kaiju hierarchy and reign supreme on the throne as the true King of the Monsters. PlayStation®4 system players can use any kaiju in any mode, including an Online Multiplayer Mode that allows for up to 3 players at once fighting in all-out mayhem.
