Fear not, Godzilla fans: The giant reptilian monster is en route to North America, through a localized version of the formerly Japan-only video game of the same name. Furthermore, though it was originally conceived as a PlayStation 3 exclusive, the city destruction simulator is now in the works for PlayStation 4 as well.
While the game looks middling at best, there are a lot of Godzilla fans out there who’ve been salivating at the mouth in anticipation of this title. Plus, those who live here in the Western world won’t have to worry about paying big bucks to import it.
You’ll be able to destroy Tokyo as the scaled behemoth when Godzilla travels west during its Summer 2015 release window. Stay tuned as we’ll be bringing you more news on the game as it comes in.
THE KING OF MONSTERS RETURNS AS GODZILLA EMERGES IN THE WEST TO DEAL DESTRUCTION AND WAGE BATTLE WITH CLASSIC ENEMIES
Western Godzilla Fans are Poised to Destroy Anything and Everything that Stands in Their Way on the PlayStation 4
SAN JOSE, Calif., (December 5, 2014) – Leading videogame publisher and developer BANDAI NAMCO Games America Inc. today announced GODZILLA for Western audiences coming to both the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.
Developed by Japanese videogame studio NATSUME ATARI, GODZILLA places players in control of one of the most famous and destructive monsters in entertainment history. As Godzilla players will trample and lay waste to cities and environments with the goal of taking out each area’s Energy Generator while collecting as much G-Energy as possible. The G-Energy can then be used to power-up Godzilla, increasing both his physical size as well as his offensive and defensive skills. The game will also allow players to utilize a dynamic Movie-Style Camera Angle System, delivering the most epic camera angles from which to destroy both a multitude of locations as well as classic enemies such as Mothra, King Ghidorah, and Mechagodzilla.
“Godzilla has had a long history and is one of Japan’s most famous pop culture exports that have entertained millions of people for generations in the West.” said Chris Gilbert, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at BANDAI NAMCO Games America Inc. “We’re excited to continue this great history by bringing the GODZILLA videogame for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 to excited fans.
