Godzilla: Greatest Battles is the first announced expansion pack for Godzilla: King of Monsters by Clover Entertainment. It will be released in the Shift Market, Xbox Live, Playstation Network and the Wii U Online in April 2013. This game chronicles the greatest battles Godzilla has ever fought in the famous Toho movies.
Godzilla: Greatest Battles lets you control one of the main characters of a certain fight scene from the movies. Like the game of which it's an expansion pack to, it has fully destructible buildings and other objects. You can use this to your advantage and have buildings topple onto your foes. However, unlike the real game, this isn't really a free-roam expansion pack although it maintains the open-world stuff. You re-create the classic fights by playing as one of the playable monsters of each fight and fighting the non-playable monster, which is the villain of sorts.
Godzilla vs Anguirus (from Godzilla Raids Again)
Taking place in 1955, Anguirus was the very first monster Godzilla fought. One day unexpectedly, Godzilla shows up on the shore of Osaka and causes a lot of damage. Jets are sent to shoot flares from their planes to lead Godzilla away from the city. Godzilla sees the flames, and, as Yamane predicted, starts to walk away. The fire attracts Godzilla to the shore of Osaka again. A few minutes later, Anguirus swims to shore and attacks Godzilla. The two creatures fight an intense battle, while destroying several buildings, including the tuna cannery that Tsukioka and Kobayashi work for. Godzilla finally bites Anguirus's neck, and throws him on a moat near Osaka Castle. Godzilla then fires his atomic ray, and burns Anguirus to death.

However, the Millennian is unable to control Godzilla's DNA and further mutates into a horrible monster named Orga. Godzilla recovers and fights Orga, but it eventually gains the upper hand, and drains more of Godzilla's DNA, trying to convert itself into a Godzilla clone. Finally, Orga opens its mouth, intending to swallow Godzilla whole, but Godzilla tricks it by deliberately throwing his head into its throat. While Orga begins to transform, Godzilla unleashes his nuclear pulse, beheading Orga and blowing the alien to bits.
- Godzilla 1998 will not appear in this, because he doesn't fight another monster in his film, and when he fought the Japanese Godzilla in Godzilla: Final Wars , it only lasted 5 seconds.
