Giant Ape Vs. Robot Fights Head To PS3 When War Of The Monsters Is Re-released

waroSony Computer Entertainment has two more PS2 classics lined up. War of the Monsters and Bloodrayne 2 are on deck according to Korea’s Game Rating Board, which rated both titles.


War of the Monsters is a Rampage style game where giant apes wrestle with giant robots and a homage to Godzilla rumbles with a golem. When you get four players together, War of the Monsters is pretty fun to play especially if you’re a fan of campy movie monsters.


When Sony passed on publishing Incognito Entertainment’s game in Japan, Capcom picked the title up and brought it to Japan.

    O.M.G….THANK YOU GAMING GODS FROM THE HEAVENS!!! War of the Monsters is a kickass game and I’m greatly looking forward to obtain it for my PS3. Togera FTW!

    Ah man I’m pumped for this!! I played the living heck out of War of the Monsters when I had it during Middle School. Even so much the disc stopped working. Hopefully we still get the Sweet Tooth Skin for Agamo.

    I’d rather see an updated version. Something with customization and online play, as much as I’m not fond of online play.

    Journey and Starhawk  aside. 

  • Spider-Man

    Aww yeah! War of the Monsters! Nostalgia up in here! Give us more niche games please.

    I remember playing the demo with my 2 brothers and nephew when we used to play together as kids!  This game was like a 3D Rampage and it ROCKED!!!

    Holy crap, War of the Monsters! I love this game! At first when I read the title, I thought it was getting a “HD” re-release, but I guess this digital version will have to do… for now. But seriously, HD ‘SEQUEL’ is what is needed in this day and age of gaming!!!

    Imagine cities being 5 times larger with more explosions and destruction, more pedestrians running, military tanks and copters chasing, while you’re taking a large ass robot and body-slamming a giant gorilla into a skyscraper!!! *Mind ‘splosion*

    I sure enjoyed War of the Monsters quite a lot and I sure hated that helicopter like robot too.

    I loved playing this game when I was younger; I played it at a friend’s house, but was never able to grab my own copy because it was so obscure. Some other people are mentioning the idea of a sequel or rerelease with online play, but really, I’m just glad that the game is getting some sort of recognition!

      Nothing screams classic like KiKaiOh! :)

       Alas, only available on Dreamcast so far. They totally should rerelease it though, best mecha-fighting game I’ve played… then again I haven’t played Virtua-On, but still.

    I used to play this every time I went to a certain store when I was younger. My mom would be off doing something and I’d stay in the electronics section for what felt like forever playing War of the Monsters. I only ever got to use 2 characters and I STILL fell in love with the game. Oh man, I’m gonna be all over this.
