Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe began streaming the second English trailer for the Godzilla action game for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 on Friday. The same trailer debuted in Japanese last week.
The trailers notes that all monsters will be playable, and it previews the roster: Godzilla, King Ghidorah, Hedorah, Mechagodzilla 2, Biollante, Destoroyah, Gigan, Godzilla (from Gareth Edwards and Legendary Pictures' 2014 film), Mothra, Jet Jaguar, Super Mechagodzilla, Kiryu, SpaceGodzilla, and Mecha-King Ghidorah.
The trailer also highlights the online multiplayer mode and possible battle scenarios: the battle from Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-out Attack, a battle between different MechaGodzillas, and a battle between Godzillas to be the King of the Monsters.
Godzilla will be a one-player game, but with a multiplayer online mode. As a monster of their choice, players can destroy the streets and humanity's weapons, as well as other monsters. The game features melee battles of up to three monsters.
The game will "make landfall" on July 14 in North America, on July 16 in Japan, and on July 17 in Europe. In North America, pre-orderd copies will include early access to the Holllywood Godzilla (2014).
