Godzilla, Gigan, Destoroyah and Mechagodzilla invade GigaBash tomorrow

Godzilla Gigabash

Kaiju vs. Titan

There has been a lot of good Godzilla news as of late, no matter which version of the big green monster you prefer. Apple TV+ is developing a Godzilla and the Titans streaming series, the Godzilla vs. Kong sequel wrapped up production last month, and Toho confirmed it’s working on a new film set to release in 2023. Unfortunately, we’re going to have to wait months, even years, to see what comes of those projects. Arriving far sooner than any of those is the big collaboration between the monster brawler GigaBash and the Godzilla universe. After weeks of speculation, we finally know what’s coming as part of this DLC update, and it’s a good bunch of kaiju.

Starting tomorrow, GigaBash owners will be able to download the Godzilla 4 Kaiju DLC pack and get immediate access to Gigan, Destoroyah, Mechagodzilla, and, of course, Godzilla. In the trailer below, you can see a lot of work went into these kaiju as film accurate as possible and I for one love that the Godzilla flying kick made the cut.

In addition to the DLC pack, GigaBash will also be updated to Version 1.1, which includes some of the most requested features for the fighter. First and foremost, the game is getting an Arcade Mode, something I mentioned as sorely missing in my review earlier this year. It’ll also receive a new Onslaught Mode that’ll have players facing off against endless waves of enemies. This mode can be played solo or with a friend in couch co-op. Mayhem Mode, which includes several fun minigames, will go online with Version 1.1 and the game is getting cross-platform matchmaking.

With all these new features and characters, it’s a pretty good day to be a kaiju fan. The GigaBash x Godzilla DLC will launch tomorrow, December 7, along with the Version 1.1 update. GigaBash is now available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC via Steam or the Epic Games Store.
