Godzilla “Smash3” Stomping Its Way to Android This May

Unless you live under a rock or simply don’t care, a new Godzilla movie is on the horizon. Scheduled for theatrical release this May, it appears as if a new movie isn’t the only thing fans of the fire-breathing monster can look forward to.

Teased this morning, development team Rogue Play announced that the Godzilla Smash3 game will make an iOS and Android debut around the same time as the movie. 

While a new Godzilla game is always welcomed, I think most people might be a bit disappointed in what type of game it is set to be. Unlike other Gojira games where you play as our hero, smashing cities and destroying other monsters, it appears that you will play a Bejeweled-like puzzle game, and if you are good at the colored challenges, you get to smash buildings.

The game will feature 3D graphics, so at least that is a start. The monster does look quite good, but let’s be honest, a jewel puzzle game is not something we’d expect from Godzilla. Does he have time for puzzles? No way. All he thinks about is destroying the world. Fans of Godzilla’s true nature would be much happier with a kill ’em all type of game, but unfortunately, we aren’t the people developing the game.

To get a better sense of what to expect in May, watch the teaser trailer below.

    So it’s Kandy Krush but with Godzilla roaming around the upper portion of the screen. Looks thrilling..

    Apparently I reside beneath a boulder.

    Thank goodness there’s a trailer. For a sec, I imagined a Godzilla runner where a.) you play as someone fleeing from Godzilla or b.) you play as Godzilla and run through the city destroying everything and collecting gems along the way. Damn runners!

    I can’t wait for this movie. However, the game looks meh.

    I know – loved Saturday morning cartoons (nothing like today) and Sunday morning Kung Fu theater and Godzilla – great times

    • Higher_Ground

      great times indeed! I can’t believe I had competely forgotten about the cartoon. I think I still have a Godzilla cupholder they were giving out at taco bell back in the day…. which I’ve just found out is worth around $15 on the internets 🙂

    • Hey Godzilla, you wouldn’t happen to somehow have a copy of 1985 on DVD would you? 😛 I’ve looked everywhere, and as you probably know, it has not been released here in the US. I just figured, since you’re my childhood hero, you might be able to help me out.

      • Godzilla

        I don’t but that movie is awesome.

  • Godzilla

    I am gonna tear it up!!!!

    • You better! I’ve been waiting for you to be reincarnated since that last abomination you apparently “starred” in back in ’99.

      • Godzilla

        That was an abomination in an alternate universe and never happened in our world. That POS has been burned by my fire breath.

      • Higher_Ground

        but you have to admit, that abomination spawned one awesome 90’s soundtrack 🙂

        The 1998 kid in me loved it….the 2014 adult in me shakes his head in disgust….I just love in Godzilla: Final Wars the real Godzilla trashed it in a 10 second fight

      • Orion

        Oh man please don’t remind us of that garbage movie. A total disaster flick for all the wrong reasons. This new one, I’m definitely intrigued.

  • MichaelFranz

    I will see this movie multiple times. not gonna lie, i was a huge godzilla fan as a kid and even growing up. Everything about this movie looks so awesome thus far. I have no shame in saying it……and neither should you.

    Timotato – if your in NY around May 16th….IMAX 3D release. lol

    • Oh yes, the movie looks incredibly righteous so far. Don’t know if I will be in town this May, but if I am, I’ll be sure to let the world know.

    • Orion

      Most definitely. I love the darker tone this movie will have.
