Story

"In 1954, Godzilla first appeared. Scientists studied the King of the Monsters and found that they could harness energy from the monster. Called "G-Energy," this seemingly endless source of power was used to better the lives of all mankind.

60 years later, as mankind's memory of the nuclear beast had faded, Godzilla appeared again. The King of the Monsters laid seige to humanity, searching for the constructed G-Energy. Such irony, the same G-Energy which was used to better the people's lives, also caused Godzilla to awaken. Can G-Force, mankind's last hope, stop Godzilla? What fait awaits Godzilla once he has consumed all of the G-Energy, and grown to his full potential?"
