Super Godzilla is a game where you "control" a person "controlling" a "controller" that "controls" Godzilla. sometimes
I really recommend you try the game yourself at least a little bit at first on your own, but don't look at a FAQ.
It's really weird

Also the music is bad, like incredibly bad, like pushing the outer limits of the SNES soundchip's ability to make fart trumpets.

Well as discussed above, the sounds and music in this game are a hot mess, so I've taken it upon myself to do some very slight improvement and restoration.
If you've never played the game before you might not even notice! I also have added a few minor changes here and there to visuals, to help improve on some of the small issues, and add a little bit to the experience.
















Every so often, I will post an e-mail address with a very basic description of something for you at home to send in if you'd like, they'll be very small things, such as a 3-7 second video for example.

The pixel artist for the SNES had a terrible fear of drawing the bottom of Godzilla's feet or else this would have definitely been added.

Hey Tie, re: Japanomonstercentrism, the idea that Japan is always the only/first nation to be attacked by powerful forces beyond anyone's control is actually an important element of the Kaiju genre. It hearkens back to the idea born in the Meiji Revolution that Japan is a special nation state with a special destiny, which was used in the early- to mid-1900s to justify the nation's expansionist policies (and ultimately the many assassinations and massacres committed in search of empire). The joke of the whole thing, if anyone's laughing, is that this "special destiny" only brought the Japanese people devastation and ruin, be it from a giant lizard, three headed hydra, or an American atomic bomb

anyway video games are art and this one is most certainly art

Regarding Godzilla as a hero, it was mostly dependent on who he was fighting any given movie. When pitted against monsters like King Ghidorah, Hedorah, Biollante, and the MUTO, he was an anti-hero while being the villain when pitted against monster like Mothra and King Kong though one movie did have Godzilla as the villain while Ghidorah was one of the heroes.

Fun fact: In Godzilla Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack, the move that made Ghidorah a hero while Godzilla was a villain, Ghidorah is actually said to be underdeveloped Yamata no Orochi who was awakened from hibernation before it could grow all eight of its heads.

V Edit: Baragon was the third guardian in that movie.

It was actually a super-cool loving awesome movie that was purely a What-If, that basically Godzilla was a beast that became possessed by all the souls of the dead from WWII's Pacific Theatre culminating in one violent ball of hatred, to destroy Japan in vengeance for the war. Mothra, Ghidorah as well as one other I forget (Baragon maybe?) are the heroes who must try to destroy Godzilla and his possessed evil incarnate.
It was, totes great and I definitely recommend anyone to watch it as my personal favourite of the Godzilla series

\/ Edit: you can really go no wrong picking one movie unless it's UNIVERSALLY called terrible, I wasn't a Godzilla fan at all until like a year ago, then my boyfriend who's a SUPER-BIG Kaiju addict made me watch whatever movie he was able to find on Youtube and slowly I got into them. Now I'm a full-on kaiju addict too, and I've even gotten into Gamera stuff despite being a completely different studio.

Not Ultraman though, can't really get into him at all but he's not Godzilla so I don't care.

Godzilla is one of those things I kind of always wanted to get into, but there's just so MUCH of it that it seemed like I'd have to spend half my life just to get started.

With that said, I can respect almost anything involving giant monsters fighting each other.

e: I feel the same way about Jojo, since that's kinda relevant too.

As a real Kaiju EXPERT* there is so much here that I could talk about, but I won't bore you much. However, it should be noted that this game was made in the middle of the Heisei era of films (the second cycle of Godzilla movies. The first was the Showa. Both named after the emperors of Japan at the time) and I have a personal theory that this game was intended to be an adaptation of the film that would eventually go through many changes and become Godzilla vs Space Godzilla. That film features the good guys attempting to use an implant and control the Big G like in this game, but the final boss in the game is someone completely different that was almost used but scrapped last second to the point where Toho actually has his suit on display at the studio. Space Godzilla does not appear in the game. Also, in many ways, the earlier stages of the game borrow heavily from the Heisei era, with who they choose to have fight Goji, and certain plot contrivances. The spaceship that picks up King Ghidorah is not used by aliens in the film, but time travelers. What they do with the monster's body I'll save for later. Also, if you play the Japanese version of the game, the next boss is mostly very different

Flash Fact: Director of Godzilla vs Hedorah, Yoshimitsu Banno, got blacklisted from directing in Japan because of this scene. Apparently up until this point, the executive producer of the series through all the first two cycles, Tomoyuki Tanaka, would often oversee the films with an iron fist, making rather draconian decisions regarding what could and couldn't be done in a Godzilla film (including how many toes they could put on his costume. really.) and Tanaka ended up in the hospital mid-way through making this one, so Banno said he could handle things. When Tanaka got out and watched the film, including the "flying" scene, he said "You've ruined my Godzilla." What's odd is for decades Banno continued to try to make a new Godzilla film with his own money, and never getting anywhere. I think these efforts had a hand in the recent American Godzilla film, which at least explains why he gets a producer credit on the film.
