Dawn of the Monsters

Runbow and Double Cross developer 13AM Games has announced Dawn of the Monsters, a four-player local cooperative kaiju brawler due out in 2020 for unannounced platforms.

Here is an overview of the game, via 13AM Games:

Dawn of the Monsters is a couch co-op, brawling action game that takes up to four players on a worldwide tour of destruction. Players take on roles from an all new cast of kaiju and are tasked with defeating the “Nephilim,” a horde of monsters that are destroying the planet. Conquer four unique worlds and unlock The Maw, an endless onslaught of kaiju brawls. Featuring beautiful 2.5D graphics inspired by the works of Mike Mignola, combat inspired by classics from the action and fighting game genres, and fully destructible environments, couch co-op in Dawn of the Monsters is bigger and badder than ever before.

13AM Games will debut an exclusive trailer for Dawn of the Monsters featuring the first public footage of the game at the opening ceremony for kaiju convention G-Fest XXVI in Chicago on July 12. More information will follow for the general public in the coming months.

The developer will also host a Dawn of the Monsters panel at G-Fest XXVI led by 13AM Games creative director and CEO Alex Rushdy, who will partner his toy company Seismic with 13AM Games to produce soft vinyl figures of the game’s lead kaiju, Megadon. G-Fest XXVI attendees can visit the Seismic booth to complete a kaiju-themed survey for a chance to win a figure.
