I have been a major Godzilla fan for as long as I can remember. I even have Godzilla Final Wars on DVD. So while the cinematic Godzilla has been retired indefinitely (although the studio says definitely) the video game Godzilla still has at least one generation of consoles to destroy because today Atari announced the development of Godzilla: Unleashed, the ultimate giant fighting monsters game. Godzilla: Unleashed will tear its way onto the Nintendo Wii, DS and Sony's PSP in autumn 2007.

The game stars the legendary Godzilla and a slew of the most renowned monsters of all-time. Gamers are challenged to ultimately save the planet from mayhem and destruction. Set in urban arenas, Godzilla: Unleashed’s interactive 3D cityscapes, big destructible buildings, soaring skyscrapers and towering alien formations provide the backdrop to epic worldwide destruction.

Yes, it is nearly the same storyline line as the last Godzilla game, Destroy All Monsters which I quite enjoyed though I thought it was a little too short and a little too easy as well as several other Godzilla and monster smashing titles.

Cyril Voiron, Marketing Director, Atari Europe had this to say “The iconic Japanese giant goes from strength to strength, taking the franchise in new directions not least with the unprecedented dynamic control afforded by the unique Wii controller. With multiple story paths, players can choose exactly how they want to release the beast within and wreak their own brand of spectacular urban devastation.”

Release the beast within? What is this a Milwaukee's Best advertisement? I know that 'Beast' definitely wreaks its own spectacular brand of urban devastation culminating in the classic techicolored yawn death ray. RAWR!

Ok, so back to the game. Players will claw, kick, stomp, throw and blast their way through the streets of major world cities in order to claim the ultimate, beastly title: King of the Monsters. In addition to a fully reinvented combat system, Godzilla: Unleashed will feature an innovative non-linear storyline which will allow players to influence how the story unfolds through their choices within battles.

Well we like non-linear. I know I like non-linear because it generally gives the game that replay factor that I like to talk about. That means I can double or triple my playing time giving the game more bang for the buck in my book.

So will Godzilla stomp an Atari shaped footprint on the gaming world once again and bring the slumbering games-behemoth back to the surface for one more desperate battle against impossible odds in order to save the day? Only time will tell...
