Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Brawl is an action 3D fighting game by Clover Entertainment. It is based off the Japanese monster movie series by Toho. It is the first game in the Godzilla game series. The game was officially released on October 18, 2012. It is for Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, and Wii U. It is the first Godzilla game on the Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii U.
The game is a sequel to the 2002 video game, Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee. The game plays in the style of a 3-D fighting game. You take on the role of one of 23 monsters from the Godzilla series, and battle other monsters in an epic, city destroying fashion. Now with the upgraded Clover Engine 3.0, the monsters look realistic and the buildings, crumble, fall apart, and collapse like never before. Players can actually lift small buildings off the ground and throw them at other monsters.
Each monster has its own breath weapon. Godzilla for example, has his trademark atomic breath, while King Ghidorah can shoot lightning from all 3 of his heads. The game plays as a fighting game yet works differently than the traditional one-on-one structured rounds. Instead, fights can include up to 4 players in a four-way simultaneous fighting structure. The camera is in third person perspective, allowing the player to focus solely on their character. Also unlike most fighting games, players are allowed to roam freely within the large city area, which allows climbing and jumping from buildings and cliffs.
Monsters can use the environment to deal out damage to their foes by making weapons of various objects found within the city, such as large pieces of rubble from destroyed buildings and some vehicles as projectiles, and smokestacks from factories as clubs, and radio antennae as spears to impale enemies, temporarily stunning them. Buildings can also be used as cover to protect yourself from breath attacks. Tall buildings that are damaged can topple over and crush enemies, inflicting a lot of damage to the monster that got crushed. Initially, you only start off with 2 monsters: Godzilla 2000 and Anguirus. But you can earn "G-Points" (short for Godzilla-Points), which you can use to unlock more monsters to play as.
Depending on what system you have, if you have Xbox LIVE, Playstation Network or Nintendo Network, you can unlock exclusive downloadable content to expand your Godzilla experience. This is an incomplete list of downloadable content you can unlock.
- Monster and Map Pack Plus: This expansion pack features 5 more monsters and 4 more cities.
- Movie Story Mode: In this downloadable mode, you fight in several recreations of your favorite Godzilla battles throughout many of his 28 films, from films like Godzilla vs SpaceGodzilla and Godzilla vs Megalon.
Choose a monster of your choice and battle against several other monsters in a world tour. Earn G-Points from every monster you defeat, and fight to save the world from an alien invasion.
Team up with a buddy and battle in 4-player matches in a multiplayer campaign.

|Godzilla||The star of the game, Godzilla is a giant mutated dinosaur who was mutated due to nuclear fallout in the Pacific Ocean. Since then, he has ravaged cities across the world for 50 years. Godzilla has enormous strength and thermonuclear breath.|
|Anguirus||An enormous ankylosaurus that is armed with sharp teeth, claws, and the ability to curl into a ball and propel himself forward like Sonic the Hedgehog. Sadly, Anguirus lacks range attacks.|
|King Ghidorah||A mutated three-headed dragon with 2 tails, King Ghidorah is Godzilla's most powerful enemy. He can shoot lightning from all 3 of his heads and can fly. King Ghidorah also has the ability to swoop down and kick his enemies to the ground.|
|Mothra||A giant butterfly, Mothra is one of the few female monsters of the game. Mothra can shoot lasers from her antenna and has the ability to fly. Mothra can also use her wings as fists.|
|Rodan||Rodan is a giant pterodactyl that possesses great strength. Rodan has thermonuclear breath like Godzilla.|
|Megalon||Megalon is a giant cockroach. Megalon uses his drill hands for weapons. Megalon also has the ability to shoot lasers from the top of his head.|
|Gigan||Gigan is a giant chicken-like alien monster. He can use his tail and scythe-hands as weapons. Gigan also can shoot a powerful laser from his cyclops-eye.|
|Mecha-King Ghidorah||MKG is a robotic version of King Ghidorah. He has all the powers and abilities of the original King Ghidorah, except slightly stronger.|
|MechaGodzilla||File:200px-MechaLord Helixzilla.jpg||MechaGodzilla is the first incarnation of the MechaGodzilla series. He was an effort made by an alien race to take over the Earth. But he was destroyed by Godzilla and King Caesar. Now, he's back. He has advanced alien weaponry, such as plasma blasts, missiles, ion cannons and more.|
|MechaGodzilla 2||This is the second incarnation of MechaGodzilla. He has missiles, laser cannons, and other weapons that make him a serious threat to other monsters. He is a part of the humans' effort to ward off monsters from cities called Global Defense Force.|
|MechaGodzilla 3||Also known as Kiryu, MechaGodzilla 3 is the third incarnation of the robotic version of Godzilla. MechaGodzilla 3 has a lot of weapons, such as missile launchers, lasers shot out of its mouth, and the Absolute Zero Cannon, Kiryu's most devastating weapon.|
|Zilla (USA)||The American version of Godzilla from the 1998 film, Godzilla USA is a mutated iguana. While not quite as strong as the other monsters, this creature makes up for that with its unprecedented speed. It also does have a breath weapon, but it's not as powerful as the Japanese Godzilla's.|
|Godzilla 1954||The original Godzilla from the VERY VERY first Godzilla movie, this Godzilla is the most powerful of all of them. He is slower than the other versions, but has the most physical strength, and the strongest breath weapon.|
|King Kong||King Kong is a giant gorilla from Skull Island. While not really a part of the franchise, he did fight Godzilla once, so he probably counts as a Godzilla monster. Kong has enormous physical strength but lacks a breath weapon.|
|Orga||It is unknown where exactly Orga came from, but we know he can kick serious tail. Orga has giant hands which he can use to fight. He can also shoot a laser from his right shoulder.|
|Destroyah||A monstrous gargoyle-like creature. He has his powerful Oxygen Destroyer breath. He's has more physical strength than King Kong, and that's saying something.|
|SpaceGodzilla||Godzilla's evil counterpart from space, SpaceGodzilla can harness the power to create giant crystals to increase his power. He is pretty weak when he is not harnessing the crystal's power, but when he is, he is a force to be reckoned with.|
|MOGUERA||A robot created by the Global Defense Force, Moguera may look pathetic, but he is actually a powerful force. He has an arsenal of weapons, such as a laser cannon, missiles, laser cannons that pop out of his hands, and a lot more.|
|King Ceasar||King Ceasar's appearance was inspired by the Shisa, a beast that looks like a combination between a lion and a dog. He has the ability to reflect another monster's energy back at them, inflicting damage.|
|Jet Jaguar||Jet Jaguar is a humanoid robot that has the ability to change his size at will. He can be from human size to at least 250 feet tall if he really wanted to.|
|Baby Mothras||Mothra's larvae, these baby Mothras are 2 giant caterpillars that work as a team. It sounds hard to control both baby Mothras, but it's not as hard as it looks.|
|Hedorah||Hedorah is quite an ugly looking creature. He is a monster made of smog and pollution due to human carelessness. While humans have been become more concerned for the environment and have been doing a good job, that doesn't mean ALL pollution has stopped. Due to this, Hedorah is BACK!|

When asked if Clover Entertainment would do a sequel to the game, Clover said, "It's too soon to think about doing a sequel. However, if we do one, I don't think it'll be the same thing. Instead, I was thinking doing the first open-world Godzilla game. But it's too early to go in depth with that now. Just wait and see how THIS game does first, then wait a while, and we'll talk about it."
On the premiere of this game during an interview with Clover, he announced that the first open-world Godzilla game would go in development later during next week. It will share elements of Hulk: Ultimate Destruction, GTA IV, and War of the Monsters.
The game will soon start production on Tuesday, October 23.
The sequel is here"
