Godzilla and friends ready to trash the Wii, PSP, and DS

Finally, smash things with your Wiimote that aren’t your television screen or significant other!

IGN has revealed that Atari will be publishing Godzilla: Unleashed for the Sony PSP, Nintendo DS, and Nintendo Wii.

The Wii version of the game will be developed by Pipeworks Software and will continue on in the vein of the other games in the monster-melee series. According to Pipeworks, all of the “A-list” monsters will be playable, along with some surprises they weren’t ready to reveal. The single-player game will feature a dynamic storyline that will change based on which of the four monster factions you choose to represent (Mothra, fly or die – what what?).

Better make sure you have the new, thicker remote straps; Godzilla: Unleashed will fully utilize both the nunchuck and the Wii remote.

“The remote handles attacks, and the nunchuk handles movement, jumping, and so forth. Because of the new controller, monsters can now execute any or all of their primary actions independently – which means that you can charge while jumping in the air – fire your weapon during attacks, and move freely at all times. This totally turns the “canned” animation system of past fighting games on its head. Godzilla can be walking in one direction, attacking with his claws in another, firing his weapon in a third direction, and swinging his tail at a rear target all at the same time. We’re just focused on putting the maximum amount of control into the player’s hands at all times.”

Other juicy tidbits include crazy destructible environments, 480p/16:9 screen support, and cryptic plans for Wii Connect24 support.
