Let’s face it, the great Godzilla is ALWAYS generally big news but with the upcoming “Godzilla Vs. Kong” film opening up next week, there is a lot more chatter going on about the legendary Kaiju. I’ve already been on point about the film in a number of posts and even discussed some of the action figures (presented HERE) but now its time for The Big G to go digital. Let’s take a look shall we?
The Press Release:
TOHO Games, the game division of Toho Co., Ltd. today announces the 2021 worldwide release of three free-to-play Godzilla mobile games: “Run Godzilla”, “Godzilla Destruction”, and “Godzilla Battle Line”. “Run Godzilla” will be released worldwide (excluding Japan) on March 25, 2021.

“Toho has been deeply involved with the production process for all three games since the early planning stages,” said Keiji Ota, Director and Chief Godzilla Officer at Toho. “All the staff involved in the project have worked together to keep alive the spirit of the Godzilla series, while also creating a ‘new Godzilla’ specially for the mobile game world.

Godzilla’s global reach is set to expand even further this year alongside the release of the new Hollywood movie “Godzilla vs. Kong” (in US theaters and on HBO MAX on March 31, and in Japanese theaters on May 14) and upcoming anime TV series “Godzilla Singular Point”.
Ota added, “The year 2021 will see the broadcast of the anime TV series “Godzilla Singular Point” and the release of the Hollywood blockbuster movie “Godzilla vs. Kong”. Among all the excitement, the Godzilla brand is taking another major, monster-sized step forward by releasing three new mobile games worldwide.”

A bizarre casual game where you raise Godzilla.
This is an idle game in which Godzilla and Kaiju become stronger while you’re away. In the village, the sun rises and sets day after day. What you must remember is that Godzilla, Kaiju, and the villagers have only a limited amount of time. One day, they will say goodbye. Raise Godzilla and Kaiju well, so they are ready to say goodbye when that time comes. Don’t worry! You can look back on the Godzilla you’ve raised even after they’re gone. Pass on their abilities to the next generation and raise even stronger Godzilla and Kaiju!

PiercingMetal Thoughts: While I will admit that I am not the biggest “gamer” under the proper definition, I do enjoy playing some of the superhero related ones on my system and of course the mobile device. I’m going to be looking into the Godzilla offerings for sure and think that I like the idea of “Godzilla Destruction” the most since that is likely going to be a lot of smackdown to enjoy.
