Dawn of the Monsters

WayForward will publish 13AM Games-developed kaiju brawler Dawn of the Monsters when it launches for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC in late 2021, the companies announced.

Under the agreement, 13AM Games will continue to lead the game’s development, while WayForward will provide creative support and handle digital publishing, distribution, and marketing duties in North America and Europe.

“From the moment we laid eyes on Dawn of the Monsters, we knew it had the potential to be something special,” said WayForward CEO Voldi Way in a press release. “13AM Games is a phenomenal developer that has been a great collaborative partner in the past, and we are very excited to help them bring this unique vision to life.”

13AM Games CEO Alex Rushdy added, “I’ve been a WayForward fan ever since I first got my hands on Godzilla: Domination! on the Game Boy Advance, and my passion for the work they do has only grown since then. So it’s not only very exciting but also very fitting that we are partnering up for Dawn of the Monsters. For many of us this partnership is a dream come true! This is our biggest game to date and we’re really happy to have WayForward in our corner. Since they are traditionally a developer, they really understand all the process that goes into making a game, which has made the working relationship smooth and fruitful. We can’t wait to share our work on Dawn of the Monsters, we’re really pushing a bold, new, visceral vision of what a co-op 2D action game can be.”

Dawn of the Monsters was first announced in July 2019. More information about Dawn of the Monsters, including gameplay details, pricing, and so on will be announced at a later date. Visit the official website here.
