Monster Movie Strategy Game ‘Kaiju Wars’ Crashes On Switch Today

Publisher Klabater has brought the biggest monsters you can think of to the Switch today, as a popular strategy game Kaiju Wars stomped on the eShop.

In this game inspired by a monster movie, you take control of the mayor as he commands an army and fights to take down Godzilla-style creatures. All those monster movies you grew up watching? You’re the one fighting the creatures now.

With five types of kaiju to fend off, each with unique skills and destruction types as well as the ability to mutate, you’ll need to help construct buildings to lure these monsters away from the city and target them to take them down. Retro VCR-style visuals make you feel like you’re playing an old video game from the 80s over and over again – and hey, you gotta see everything monsters, right?

Here’s what to expect from Klabate’s game:

command the army

1) We need more time! – Play as the mayor of the town of Floatio, tasked with repelling the overwhelming force of a kaiju attack. Park tanks and jets in the monster’s path to slow it down (don’t worry, we have a good insurance policy)
2) Build buildings! – Build sacrificial military bases and airfields to distract the kaiju and carpet the city streets with fodder
3) Deploy experimental weapons! – command frost beams and transform mechs into combat to keep the kaiju at bay
4) Clear out! – Our chief scientist is working on an anti-monster serum, but it’s not ready yet! Be ready to evacuate the lab using transport trucks, boats, or planes when kaiju get too close

Fight the KAIJU!

1) Five Unique Kaiju – Each specialized in different types of destruction.
2) They mutate! – Tremble in fear as each kaiju grows stronger and gains devastating abilities through mid-level mutations.
3) Unstoppable! – Kaiju cannot be killed, but can only be slowed down and forced to retreat…for now. Pepper them with ammo, if you can.
4) Predictable! – They’re heading for the nearest building, and these scientists matched the exact odds as to where they might go next. Use this information wisely!

Campaign Mode!

1) Discover the mystery – Strange things happen: frequent volcanic eruptions, tsunamis and earthquakes. Find out why in a 15+ hour story-driven campaign
2) Start a campaign – Play missions from around the world as you progress through the global kaiju fight. Test your wits in tactical puzzles, command dozens of units in large-scale scenarios, and repel repeated attacks while economically growing your city in city defense missions
3) Improve your ACES – Veteran ACE units accompany you throughout your campaign. Spend medals to upgrade and customize your best fighters
4) Customize your Project Deck – Unlock powerful Project cards, customize your deck and bring your best strategy to protect the city from the monstrous Kaiju!
