BANDAI NAMCO Games Europe announce GODZILLA

BANDAI NAMCO Games Europe has announced that GODZILLA is to be launched in Europe, Middle-East and Australasia on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.

Developed by Japanese videogame studio NATSUME ATARI INC., 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 and massive pop culture exports that have entertained millions of people for generations in the West! We’re happy to continue this great history by bringing the GODZILLA videogame for PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 to fans in our territories. Let the countdown to rampage and larger-than-life battles begin!” Herve Hoerdt, Vice President of IP Strategy at BANDAI NAMCO Games Europe.

GODZILLA will feature multiple game modes including; Mission Mode where players will wreak mayhem through more than 20 different stages of play; a Diorama Mode that allows players to design their own dioramas of Godzilla’s destruction; and King of Monsters Mode where Godzilla must fight his way through the franchises most famous enemies to reach the top of the monster hierarchy and claim the throne as the true King of Monsters

GODZILLA will be available in Europe, Middle-East and Australasia for the PlayStation®4 system and PlayStation®3 system in summer 2015.

Godzilla, the King of the Monsters, first appeared in 1954. Scientists studied Godzilla and found that they could harness energy from the monster. Called “G-Energy,” this seemingly endless source of power was used to better the lives of all mankind. 60 years later, just when mankind’s memory of the beast faded, Godzilla appeared again. Godzilla destroyed at will, all in search of more G-Energy. Such irony, the same G-Energy which was used to better the people’s lives, also caused Godzilla to awaken. Can the G-Force, mankind’s last hope, stop Godzilla? What fate awaits Godzilla once he has consumed all of the G-Energy, and grown to his full potential?

Key features

DESTRUCTION

Bash your way through each stage to take out the Energy Generator and proceed to the next area. Be sure to smash as many other buildings in the stage as possible to maximize your G-Energy. But beware, because the more buildings and structures you take out in the stage, the higher the Hazard Level will go, bringing out legendary monsters to battle.

MOVIE STYLE ACTION

Players can choose to view the action with a special Movie-Style Camera Angle System. Choosing this camera angle switches the camera view to special, pre-set locations on the map. Players can switch to the special camera points, and control Godzilla as seen just like in the movies!

MULTIPLE MODES

Mission Mode – Crush your way through 25 stages of mayhem!

Diorama Mode - Build the Godzilla scene of your dreams!

King of Monsters Mode – It’s a time trial of chaos!

POWER-UP

Collect G-Energy in each stage to Power-Up your Godzilla! Grow Godzilla from 50 up to 100 Meters tall. Godzilla’s defensive and offensive prowess will increase in line with his size. Your Godzilla will also learn new skills, and you can power up his beam as well! Power up enough, and Godzilla will even fly!
