Though to be perfectly honest, I am barely a gamer to the point of not being one at all, while also knowing these games far better through written and online video reviews than hands-on experience. But a poorly programmed video game, Japanese or otherwise, is still obvious to even worse 'noobs' (idiotic slang term for 'inexperienced neophyte') than I'm often accused of being.
I have a slight fear that the same may be true with the upcoming, but no-less intriguing title "City Shrouded In Shadow", which is to be a survival action-adventure where you have to evacuate a city safely while in the midst of a multiple giant monster (Kaiju) attack.

On the bright side, the game is to have many guest stars from previously unconnected Kaiju films and television series, with the extraterrestrial superhero Ultraman being the first confirmed, along with strong rumors and hints of Godzilla himself joining in on the mayhem. So at the very least, this video game will be a significant, serious-minded crossover in Kaiju History, NOT counting obscure soccer games featuring super-cute 'animefied' versions of these same characters.
Here's hoping Gamera, lesser known one-shot monsters like Guilala and Gappa, and maybe even some original giant creature creations are included in the finished video game.
