I don't post here often but I would like to weigh in given the petition has been going around. There's a few things I feel need saying.
The petition doesn't need to necessarily succeed to produce a favorable result. I mean, I'm just happy Pipeworks referenced the Godzilla Trilogy on their Twitter and the amount of tweets they've recieved regarding remasters. This shows there's SOME level of interest in the idea among fans, and that the people who could do anything about it are seeing it even if they dont do anything about it. Fans have to make sure that even if we don't get the trilogy remastered, interest in more Godzilla games, new or rereleased, needs to be made known.
Second, I don't think a remaster would be impacted by Godzilla Vs. That game is recognized, or at least SHOULD BE recognized, as having been a failure for reasons more gameplay-related than being Godzilla related. As people have said, Destroy All Monsters Melee in particular has fans that played it when they were young, many of which were never into Godzilla like most hardcore kaiju fans. I myself played Save the Earth as one of my first video games I ever played on the PS2. Compared to some fans, I may be young, but I'm almost 22 - I'm definitely not a child anymore, and so are a lot of these potentially paying customers, and as we know, nostalgiabaiting is often a successful marketing strategy.
Basically what I'm saying is that these games were far better in terms of gameplay than Vs, and had bigger rosters, and while they may not have been perfect, they'd tie into the modern resurgence of Godzilla interest as of late. Ideally, if the proposed remastered trilogy were to come back, even in it's most rudimentary form (port forward, fix glitches, done) I still feel like off of name recognition, the release would be okay. Godzilla Vs was forgettable and I doubt most people even remember it exists. Scroll through any DAMM/STE comment section on the Yubtubs and you'll see tons of average Joe YouTube accounts talking about how they played the game as kids.
I also wanted to say to the people who want more unique Godzilla games that aren't just fighters, I genuinely believe that, while that would be just great (the Monster Island Sim sounds amazing), given how much of a push there has to be for a Godzilla game to succeed financially, a fighter is really the only way to go. The main thing everyone cares about is the monsters. At the very least, the casual audience only cares about the monsters. And they care most about the monsters when there's a lot of them, and especially when they're fighting and destroying cities in a way that's exciting. And the most tried and true formula for that is a fighting game.
Personally, my hope is for a new 2.5D or Tekken/Soul Calibur esque fighter from Namco Bandai. I really just want a chance to see Shin, Earth/Filius, and the 2019 quartet of monsters to finally be playable in a fighter, alongside monsters like Gabara and Gorosaurus, Ebirah, Kumonga, and more who've either never been playable in an HD game or haven't made the jump to 3D in any capacity. Whether it's a new 2D fighter or a 3D one, I think a new game is due. Shame it's a hope and a dream and not a certainty.
