News: Also, the PSP version appears to be canceled.
Godzilla: Unleashed, a fighting game starring the Japanese monster and many of his monsteriffic co-stars previously announced for the Wii, DS and PSP is also coming to the PS2 this fall.
Developed by Pipeworks, Godzilla: Unleashed will feature more than twenty monsters from the Godzilla film oeuvre along with new monsters designed especially for the game. The PS2 version will also include exclusive monsters not found in the Wii version.
?Bringing Godzilla: Unleashed to the vast PlayStation 2 audience as well as the massive and growing Wii and DS fanbase is another feather in the cap of Atari's growing publishing line up,? said Mathias Hautefort, Executive Vice President of publishing and production, Atari. ?The Godzilla license is a global phenomenon and Atari has a successful history of putting the player in control of everyone's favourite monster. This most recent collaboration with independent studio Pipeworks will result in yet another must-have monster romp.?
While Atari has added another platform to the Godzilla: Unleashed release schedule, it appears the PSP version has become a victim of the monster's rampage. It was not mentioned in today's news and, in fact, Atari confirmed plans for "a simultaneous autumn 2007 release on all three platforms" (referring to the Wii, DS and PS2 versions). That's basically the kiss of cancellation in the video game world.
We'll have more on Godzilla: Unleashed soon.
