One of the highlights of the IGF awards this week was a short video showcasing the next game from Fumito Ueda, creator of classics like The Last Guardian, Ico and Shadow of the Colossus.
Godzilla and his atomic breath are one of the most recognisable metaphors for the atomic bombings of WWII — and they're also icons of Japanese pop culture. With a steady supply of Kaiju movies, giant monsters nestled themselves comfortably in video games, creating a huge library of monster mayhem-based titles. We have selected some of them, both niche and well-known, featuring battles with these towering beasts.
Fumito Ueda, the mind behind such classics as ICO and Shadow of the Colossus, left Sony last year much to the dismay of fans awaiting the release of his latest project, The Last Guardian. Since then, there's been little news on his involvement with the project as an outside contractor and indeed how production on the game is going.
