Bandai Namco is hosting its Anime Expo Anime Games Panel in Lost Angeles and has announced the localization of a new game, Ultra Kaiju Monster Rancher.
The game is coming west for Nintendo Switch in 2022 and it’s a “role-playing simulation”. Output will be digital only in the west.
The game was originally announced for Japan and Asia only during the Nintendo Direct Mini Japanese release a few days ago.
As the title suggests, it is a collaboration between the Ultraman tokusatsu franchise and the Monster Rancher role-playing simulation series.
The game features popular Kaiju from the Ultraman series like Alien Batlan, Zetton, and Gomora, mixed with Monster Rancher mechanics.
You can summon your Kaiju, raise and train them, and explore the world with them. You can teach them different attacks to use in battle.
They also have different emotions and animations that were never featured in the Ultraman series, where they were simply enemies.
You can become the ultimate Kaiju trainer and participate in tournaments. On top of that, you can also merge the Kaiju you’ve raised to create new, never-before-seen species.
You can check out the trailer below.
