Kaiju Are Attacking, Time To Wear Silly Clothes

Kaiju are levelling a major Japanese city. What to do? Run, hide, and dress up in costumes, that's what.

Recently, I've been playing City Shrouded in Shadow, a game I checked out at this year's Tokyo Game Show. What I liked was that it was a Japanese monster game that you played from the perspective of a person below instead of controlling a kaiju or a giant super hero laying waste to a city.

In City Shrouded in Shadow, you get to experience that boots-on-the-ground POV as either a male or female protagonist. You also get to wear outfits. A lot of them.

Combined with the giant monsters and huge superheroes, this dress-up element and silly selectable dialogue make City Shrouded In Shadow feel like a B-movie. Goofy as hell, but fun. 


    Man would totally love to play a localized version of this game but this type of japanese game would never sell well in western audiences.
