E3 2019 is rightly around the corner, but the pre-E3 rumor mill isn’t done yet. The latest dubious and strange rumor to crawl out of it is word of a Godzilla vs Kong fighting game. That’s right!
A Godzilla vs King Kong fighting game.
According to a new rumor from 4chan, Arc Systems Works is developing a 2D Godzilla vs Kong fighting game that will tie in with the upcoming releasing 2020 movie of the same name, and release late 2020 via the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
The rumor claims the game will be revealed on the Microsoft’s E3 2019 stage this Sunday, and it makes note of the following fighters: the Godzilla (2014), Kong, Mech Godzilla Mk1, King Ghidorah, Anguirius, Godzilla (1954), Jet Jaguar, King Cesar, Megalon, Behemoth, MechaniKong, Gigan, Mothra, Rodan, Kiryu, Muto, Zilla, Destroyah, Baragon, Orga, and Space Godzilla.
About 2D fighter
For those that don’t know: a 2D fighter simply referes to a fighting game that takes place on a plain 2D plane. In other words, we can think of Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat. Meanwhile, an example of a 3D fighter would be Tekken.
Not to take this rumor very seriously
Of course, take this rumor should be taken with a great massive grain of salt. It’s the 4chan. Sometimes 4chan rumors are legit, but more often than not, they are full of misinformation or are downright fake. Further, this is so ridiculous that there’s no way it could be real. But, at the same time, it’s so ridiculous that nobody could make this up on it’s own.
The Arc System Works is known for making 2D licensed fighting games, so it’s plausible they would also make this. And given the movie is releasing next year, there’s a perfect opportunity to cash in on some marketing synergy. Yet, I can’t imagine a timeline where this exists. Surely the current timeline is too dark for something this great to be real.
That all said, thankfully we don’t have to wait very long to find out if this is legit or true. The Microsoft’s E3 presser is only three days away
