Game studio Mediatonic and Japanese Entertainment Studio Toho Company have partnered together to celebrate the King of Monsters by adding it to popular video game Fallout Guys: Ultimate Knockout.
A Godzilla costume will be added to the popular online multiplayer game to celebrate ahead of Godzilla Day and the widely attended Godzilla Festival in Japan. Starting November 3, for a limited time only, fans will have the opportunity to use the new skin for only 10 Crowns total.
The costume will feature Godzilla’ trademark parts like the three rows of dorsal fins and more. It will also come in different colors. It will be available for both PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam.
With millions of copies sold, the wildly popular Fall Guys multiplayer game flings hordes of contestants together online in a mad dash through round after round of escalating chaos until one victor remains. The Godzilla crossover comes just after the game’s season 2 release, which introduced new medieval-themed games, costumes and features.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with Mediatonic on this Godzilla costume. With only two months since launch and boasting millions of players worldwide, ‘Fall Guys’ presents such an exciting opportunity for Godzilla fans everywhere,” said Lora Cohn, Managing Director, Toho International, Inc. “Now, players will get to celebrate Godzilla Day in such a unique way by putting on the Godzilla suit and stomping their way to victory!”
“There are many parallels to be drawn between the mighty Godzilla and an average Fall Guy; they are both fiercely competitive, they battle on an international stage with incredibly high stakes, they always get back up after being knocked down, and according to worrying reports from our social media channels, they are both much taller than you’d expect,” said Jeff Tanton, VP of Creative, Mediatonic. “We are proud and deeply honoured to share the stage with the greatest Kaiju – and if anyone is still struggling to get a crown with this costume, though it may sound primitive and un-scientific, we recommend that through the fairies, they could perhaps ask Infant Island for help?”
