New Godzilla Game??

According to the latest Famitsu leaks, Bandai Namco is currently developing a new Godzilla title for the PlayStation 3. The game is due out this winter.

In the action title, you’ll be able to take down buildings by using Godzilla’s kicks and tail blows. Godzilla himself has been given a great deal of care, as Famitsu notes that the team were inspired by the S.H.MonsterArts figures.

Development of the Godzilla PS3 project is currently 40 percent complete.

I'm actually interested in this game (even if it ends up being NOT so great). I'm a import gamer so this will be something that I will keep my eyes out on.

Hope it does get a state side release but I wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't.

Namco Bandai seems to mostly do fighters and action/adventure RPGS. And I'm doubting it'll be an action/adventure RPG, although that could prove interesting.

The PS3 is region free so you are able to play any games from any region. I'm a import gamer and all of my Japanese PS3 imports runs perfectly with a US PS3. The only problem that you will face is if the game contain any DLC contents. For that, you will have to create a Japanese account as a new user.

So far it looks like it may not be released outside of Japan, unless they are willing to see if the game will sell.

Way of the Samurai 4 had a state side release. Although it was through the PSN store only, no physical copy, which does bode well for other unique titles like this possibly being available.

The quote from the Japanese source cited in the other thread made it seem like a fighter: viewtopic.php?f=59&t=20651

Im hoping for a beat em up (military, kamakuras, dagorah, and alien whordes) ala Monster of Monsters, with a boss monster at the end, then a vs mode also included. Looks like Hesei Godzilla in that pic, wonder if we'll get more models of the big G.

That website says that the models "clearly came from the '94 monsterarts figure". Are they just making crap up? That's clearly NOT even the '94 suit. It's the '89 bio-goji design.

i think one of the first articles i saw said something along the lines of the designers were inspired by mobility of the SHMA figures and took that into the consideration for the character design.. which has since been interpreted many different ways

Well, that makes more sense I guess. I'm curious to see how this turns out. It looks decent but not very polished yet. And who knows what the gameplay will turn out like.

I'll take that for a 40% finished game. The trailer sounds good, I hope it means we'll be getting some of the original films' score in this, and that it wasn't just for the promo purposes.

Godzilla doesn't look 100 meters tall. Not even sure if he's even 50 meters tall.

Not really persuaded by the trailer either way. It looks neither exciting nor terrible. On the other hand, this flyer has visual confirmation of Kiryu and Legendary Godzilla in the bottom right panels, which does catch my interest: http://i5.minus.com/ib0xkAzYlkoFwV.jpg

I'd like to see some confirmation either way if you can battle other monsters or not.

I think no matter, I'll pick up this game though.

Deff gonna play as Legend-Goji

Can't say I'm too impressed. Obviously I don't know all the details, but I expect this to be a quick, relatively minor release that doesn't officially cross the ocean to the US, probably made just to make a few bucks without spending too much money on actually getting the game made. The graphics look decent, but not out of this world amazing (and before someone throws that 40% comment at me: come on. There's not going to be any significant graphical upgrades between now and release, especially if they felt confident enough to release a trailer), and honestly the gameplay of Godzilla games has never struck me as all that interesting. I'd kill for a decent Godzilla 2 - War of the Monsters rework: something where you play at the strategic level, having to manage resources and military assets in an attempt to defeat or minimize the damage of the monsters, but even that game would probably end up being pretty one-dimensional. Godzilla just doesn't strike me as the sort of character that's suited well for any sort of video game outside of fighters, and fighters don't dominate the video gaming scene the way they used to.

A sandbox Godzilla game could work as long as people don't mind only playing as Godzilla. Judging by details released and the trailer it looks like an update to Godzilla Generations which I didn't care for to much, I enjoyed it's sequel Max Impact more despite it being on rails and having no save system.

Hopefully its successful enough to warrant a port to the US as well as sequels/ports on other platforms (360, Xbox One and PS4). On a side note I think this game would be awesome on the PC if only for the modder community.
