Trailer for newly announced Godzilla PS3 game emerges

On Thursday, a trailer for Bandai Namco's recently announced Godzilla game for the PlayStation 3 has popped up, displaying the King of Monsters in all his rampaging glory.

Originally announced in the Japanese video game magazine Famitsu, the Godzilla game developed by Namco Bandai will launch in Japan this winter. As Expected of a Godzilla game, players will take control of the big lizard and use all his signature moves to take down his legendary monster foes. According to Famitsu, the game is 40 percent complete, meaning screenshots and footage should be seen as a work-in-progress.

The design of Godzilla in this PS3 game is based off the figurines made by S.H.MonsterArts. As teased near the end of the game trailer, it appears the Godzilla in the recent North American reboot by Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures will be a playable character. Given the worldwide success of the Gareth Edwards film, it makes sense for Bandai Namco to include the Westernized version of Godzilla in the game. It may also mean other Godzillas from different film periods may be playable in the game. Although, there's doubt the 1998 version of Godzilla will make an appearance, given how he was mocked in "Godzilla: Final Wars."

As of now, the Godzilla game by Bandai Namco is only set for a Japanese release. With Godzilla's popularity surging in America, thanks to the success of the recent film and IDW comics, it's possible the PS3 title will see a Western release. At the very least, Bandai Namco could give the Godzilla game an American digital release on the PlayStation Network, like the company's upcoming "Dynasty Warriors Gundam: Reborn" set for July.

For movie fans, a sequel to the American-made Godzilla movie has already been announced, with Edwards returning to the director's chair.
