The Lost Kaiju Monster Strategy RPG

image Speaking of Rocket Company, they dabbled in strategy RPGs before focusing on English training games for the DS. Ultra Garrison: Monster Attack is their contribution to the genre and it’s like Super Robot Taisen with Ultraman.

 

But, you don’t control Ultraman in this game! You battle kaiju, Godzilla-like monsters, with Earth’s defense force, which is made out of science vessels and advanced battleships.

If Ultraman shows up you can cooperate with him while he crushes your foes. The game has stills of Ultraman episodes in it too, a neat treat for fans.

Ultra Garrison: Monster Attack was made for the Game Boy Advance and it came out on the tail end of the system’s life. Bad timing and the Ultraman license may be two reasons why the game never left Japan.

      This game was really hard for me and I usually play SRW games. I couldn’t even make it past the 1st stage because the one little plane I was allowed to use was so weak compared to the monster

      Now I’m more interested in that Kaijuu Busters game , which is based on the Ultraman series as well but plays like Monster Hunter

    Hmmm, this makes me wonder, how come we never see any Godzilla (and company) games from Japan? They’re pretty much always done by western developers, I think, and are beat ‘em ups.

    Now that I think about it, different company, but there was a Gamera shooter for I think the PS1?

    And I’ve got Godzilla: Final Wars (the movie) on UMD, which I guess technically is on a video game system.

      Bandai owned the rights to all Godzilla games but they were picky back in the mid 90′s as to what games made it to the U.S.
      I believe Super Godzilla made it to the U.S. as well as 2 Godzilla NES games.
      Then Atari bought the license to make Godzilla games. Not sure if they still hold it anymore. Hopefully not

      Gamera 2000 was produced by Virgin Interactive and there was a SNES game made by Sammy Studios and a Game Boy game made by Angel Studios.
