Thundering in on the wake of last year's 60th anniversary of Toho's original Godzilla movie and Gareth Edwards' earth-shattering Godzilla reboot comes the new Godzilla videogame developed by Bandai Namco.  Here's the latest trailer, featuring actual gameplay of behemoth brutes battling it out to the death.  The PlayStation-exclusive title consists of several modes of city-smashing kaiju combat, allowing you to play as Ghidorah, Mothra, Mechagodzilla and a humongous host of other classic Godzilla foes.  Pre-ordering the game delivers you instant access to the 2014 Hollywood version of Godzilla, and from the look of this gameplay footage, this beast could be a titanic amount of fun if mutant monster destruction is your crushing cup of tea.  Take a look ...

After the dust settles, check out the official press release from Bandai Namco:

IS GODZILLA HERO OR ANTI-HERO? ROAR AS THE CLASSIC GODZILLA OR 2014 HOLLYWOOD GODZILLA! LAY WASTE TO CITIES WITH BRUTE FORCE & ATOMIC BREATH!! BATTLE AGAINST A CAST OF MONSTROUS LEGENDARY RIVALS!!

Become the King of the Monsters and lay waste to cities with brute force & atomic breath as you battle against a cast of monstrous legendary rivals!

COMPLETE & UTTER DESTRUCTION!!

Godzilla, the King of Monsters, first appeared in 1954. Scientists studied Godzilla 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, just when mankind’s memory of the beast faded, Godzilla appeared again. Godzilla destroyed at will, all in search of more G-Energy. Such irony, the same G-Energy which was used to better the people’s lives, also casued Godzilla to awaken. Can the G-Force, mandkind’s last hope, stop Godzilla? What fate awaits Godzilla once he has consumed all of the G-Energy, and grown to his full potential?

DESTRUCTION

Bash your way though each stage to take out the Energy Generator and proceed to the next area. Be sure to smash as many other buildings as possible to maximize your G-Energy. But beware, because the more buildings and structures you take out in the stage, the higher the Hazard Level will go, bringing out legendary monsters to battle.

MOVIE STYLE ACTION

Players can choose to view the action with a special Movie-Style Camera Angle System. Choosing this camera angle switches the camera view to special, pre-set locations on the map. Players can switch to the special camera points, and control Godzilla as seen just like in the movies!

Godzilla: The Game stomps into stores and digital download for PS4 and PS3 on July 14, 2015.  Will you be ready for the epic rumble?
