The latest Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer debuted yesterday, and since I’m usually a day late and a dollar short, I didn’t check it out until this morning.
Bandai Namco Games America Inc. will release Godzilla on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 consoles for summer 2015.
The videogame, developed by Natsume Atari, has players (as the titular character) destroying each area’s Energy Generator and collecting as much G-Energy as possible (the energy is used to power-up Godzilla). A movie-style camera angle system is also inflused into the game, which also has Godzilla taking on Mothra, King Ghidorah, and Mechagodzilla.
With Mission mode, players will cover over 20 stages of gameplay. Diorama mode is available for players who want to capture photos of Godzilla in different environments, and with King of Monsters mode Godzilla fights other creatures to become the true leader of the world beating beasts.
“Godzilla has had a long history and is one of Japan’s most famous pop culture exports that have entertained millions of people for generations in the West.” said Chris Gilbert, Senior VP of Sales and Marketing at BANDAI NAMCO Games America Inc. “We’re excited to continue this great history by bringing the Godzilla videogame for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 to excited fans. Let the countdown to monstrous destruction and epic battles begin!”

Elizabeth Olsen’s independent film work includes 2011’s acclaimed Martha Marcy May Marlene and last year’s Kill Your Darlings. Her segue into studio filmmaking should also be a creatively satisfying experience, as she collaborated with filmmaker Gareth Edwards (Monsters) in the upcoming Godzilla and Joss Whedon in next year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.
In Godzilla, Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson play husband and wife and they are featured as siblings (she’s Scarlet Witch, he’s Quicksilver) in Avengers: Age of Ultron. For Olsen, working with Taylor-Johnson on both films was an “awesome” experience.
“We only did a few scenes together (for Godzilla),” said Olsen who appeared with Taylor-Johnson in the end credits of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. “But we spent time together in Vancouver and I got to know his family…and to play really tight brother and sister (dynamic) it’s really lucky that it’s not with just some guy I’ve just met. I think we both like the fact that we have this other film in our repertoire.”
