Mediatonic and Toho have teamed to bring the King of the Monsters to gamers everywhere in “Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout.”
Beginning Nov. 3, fans will have the opportunity to use the all-new Godzilla skin available to players for 10 Crowns total. The partnership comes ahead of Godzilla Day and the Godzilla Festival in Japan.
On Nov. 3, 1954, Godzilla made its first appearance in Toho’s “Godzilla.” The date is officially Godzilla’s birthday, with a Godzilla Festival held in Japan each year to celebrate. In 2019, the festival gathered more than 20,000 visitors, and this year’s event will be held virtually where even more fans are expected to tune-in.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with Mediatonic on this Godzilla costume,” says Lora Cohn, managing director, Toho International. “With only two months since launch and boasting millions of players worldwide, ‘Fall Guys’ presents such an exciting opportunity for Godzilla fans everywhere. 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!"
The skin will include Godzilla’s trademark features such as its three rows of dorsal fins. It has been designed to fit right into the “Fall Guys” world with different colors available depending on the specific player playthrough.
"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,” says Jeff Tanton, vice president, creative, Mediatonic. “We are proud and deeply honored 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?"
