In the next fighting game (if it is one), just give me a free/sandbox mode where I can destroy cities without fighting other kaiju!

Cmon now is the time for another Godzilla game! Does Toho not have faith in the success of one? Right around the release of GvK was perfect. If it didn't happen yet I doubt it is gonna happen anytime soon which is a damn shame. It doesn't necessarily have to be a fighting game although that certainly could work as well. If we are focusing on the Monsterverse it'd probably be best to do something like that anyway.

Toho, I'm guessing, would gladly take a developer's money whether the game is good or not.

I think the issue is that Godzilla games have such a horrible reputation that in today's climate where everything has to be a AAA blockbuster franchise to get greenlit from most publishers, no one is willing to take the chance on shelling out money for the license then having the game bomb.

The solution, of course, is to make a good game.....but so many people have made so many stupid decisions where Godzilla games are concerned...it's amazing it's so hard to make a great game with the license.
