Atari and Pipeworks Software Inc. have been busy since they finished up last year's Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee. Their new title, Godzilla: Save the Earth, is said to combine, the epic scope of the Godzilla movies "with an amazing single-player action mode to create the definitive adventure-fighting game on any system," said Peter Wyse, executive producer at Atari. "With more monsters, more cities, and more radioactive monster-bashing, Godzilla fans won't believe the authenticity--while fighting and adventure gamers will have a unique experience with one of the best-known film legends in the world!"
So what's different than the last game? First off, there are over nine modes of gameplay, including a mission-based single-player campaign in which Godzilla must battle UFOs to free other monsters. You'll be stomping around in a dozen cities, including New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Tokyo, and Osaka. Not only will these environments be larger than those in the last game, but the destruction of buildings will also be much more realistic. With over 18 playable monsters, including Godzilla, Godzilla 2000, King Ghidorah, Gigan, Mothra, Biollante, and Space Godzilla, the online multiplayer (supporting up to four players) will keep you occupied the nights your friends are too intimidated to play against you. And if that wasn't enough, Atari also promises unlockable minigames.
Godzilla: Save the Earth is currently planned for a fall release.
