Being developed by Granzella and to be published by Bandai Namco, a new survival video game featuring kaiju is under development for the Sony Playstation 4. The title is played from the perspective of the humans, who are trying to survive while their town is besieged by giant monsters.

City Shrouded in ShadowTitled City Shrouded in Shadow (巨影都市) the game is set to be released this year, on October 19th, for the system. Rather than use original monsters, though, the game is taking some of the most popular icons in the genre to appear in the game.

On the Toho side, this includes Godzilla and King Ghidorah, both of which resemble their appearance in Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah (1991). This Godzilla, though, features fangs more similar to the original, 1954 Godzilla though rather than the double rows present on the Heisei series one.

The video game also features Gamera, the Symbiotic Legion and the Legion Flower from the Toho distributed movie Gamera 2: Advent of Legion (1996). Other famous characters appear as well, including Ultraman and the Alien Zarab. The anime Evangelion is represented with Unit-01 and Sachiel, while mechs from the series Patlabor also appear. The Gyoas are also heavily hinted to appear in the game, appearing at the end of the latest trailer, which is found below.
