“As the film stomps into theaters, Godzilla - Smash3 captures a monster-sized experience on the small screen in a great new way,” said Thomas Gewecke, Chief Digital Officer and Executive Vice President, Strategy and Business Development, Warner Bros. Entertainment. “We’re lucky to work with a group like Rogue Play who understands what makes ‘Godzilla’ special and can channel that into a great-looking and fun game for our fans.”
“The launch of the mobile game is an opportunity for fans to interact with the ‘King of the Monsters’ in a new way. We are so excited to see how fans will react now that we’ve put the ability to control Godzilla, including his epic roar, in their hands,” said Emily Castel, Legendary’s Chief Marketing Officer.
Developed from the ground up by Godzilla gaming veterans at Pipeworks Software, Godzilla – Smash3 combines accessible puzzle mechanics with gorgeous 3D visuals and RPG-style progression that stand out in the genre.
Godzilla – Smash3 complements the iconic character’s epic cinematic rebirth, putting the powerful force of the ‘King of the Monsters’ into gamers’ hands like never before. Players take full control of each stomp, slash and bite by matching – or “smashing” - tiles on the lower portion of the screen. Their actions drive a fully 3D Godzilla, who will demolish battalions and sink ships. With enough skill, players can unleash Godzilla’s signature Nuclear Breath and combine tiles for devastating combos.
As players pursue Godzilla’s foes from the upcoming film, they’ll travel the world and face dozens of challenges across land, sea and air. To keep pace with new objectives in each stage, players can upgrade Godzilla to match their play-style and call upon friends in times of need.
Godzilla – Smash3 offers a dynamic experience to be enjoyed concurrently with the film’s theatrical release and beyond. Look out for more updates, including monster-sized reveals and new content, about Godzilla – Smash3 in the coming months.
