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.

  • Godmars

    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.
