That'd be great. And with a potential multiplayer component, Godzilla as P1 and Mothra as P2?... Actually, nix that, Nintendo's online is trash. But a re-release would still be cool.

Playing Monster of Monsters, to me, is like when I finally played Mega Man 1.

Full of flaws, but the potential was through the roof, and a sequel to sand the rough edges off would be amazing. Fortunately, with Mega Man, that potential was realized. Mega Man got Mega Man 2, one of my personal favorite games of all time, and that's to say nothing for the other great sequels that came out, including the Mega Man X series.

Sadly, MoM never got a 2. All the potential in the world and instead we got a completely different game that went against what the first had done.

If they had fixed some of the issues (constant black background, less repetitive levels, having to fight Gezora, Moguera, and every other monster multiple times, an unseen time limit during boss fights, etc.) and maybe if they had added a multiplayer component and given us more "Good" monsters to choose from (I'm still bummed Rodan and Anguirus didn't make the cut), a sequel or even a full fledged series could have been amazing.

Time limits on the fights didn't bother me as it saved my ass several times.

My secret is that I always use Mothra to fight Gigan and Mechagodzilla. Position yourself right and you'll take minimal damage. Godzilla is just too big of a target for those 2.

Nah, Godzilla is boss. I beat the whole game with him. Only brought Mothra along because I had to. Tail swipes did wonders against tough foes.

Agreed. I'll often play through the game as just Godzilla and get someone else to play as Mothra. If I'm playing solo I sometimes just kill Mothra off for the extra challenge or hold her in reserve, sometimes only playing as her to fly to the end of the world after I've killed all the monsters as Godzilla. Am I the only one who prefers starting the game with the Destroy All Monsters code? It makes the game a lot more exciting at the beginning and makes it seem like you're thwarting massive invasion of the Earth before chasing the Xians and their monsters back to Planet X to finish them off once and for all.
