Bandai is bringing out the giant monsters in the expandable Godzilla Card Game, featuring the company’s new Chrono Clash system, which will release in September.

The Godzilla Card Game will feature many of the most popular giant monsters from the classic movies, including Godzilla himself, of course, as well as Mothra, Rodan, King Ghidorah, Mechagodzilla, Jet-Jaguar, and more, as imagined in the original movies.  The monsters are, naturally enough, poised to do battle for supremacy.

The game is built on the new Chrono Clash game system, created by Ryan Miller (whose credits include work on Magic: The Gathering design teams and lead designer for Duel Masters and Kaijudo).  Instead of traditional turn-based play, in this system players share a power resource track, moving the token back and forth based on the power value of the cards they play.  The position of the token determines when play passes to the other player.

The first set for the game will include four pre-constructed 50-card decks plus a 16-card sideboard, as well as 24 double-sized cards, 4 turn sequence cards, 4 play mats, and a multi-language play manual.  The Godzilla card game is intended for 2 to 4 players, ages 6 and up, and takes about half an hour to play.  MSRP is $49.99.

Bandai will support the launch with in-store organized play events starting in October.  Participating stores will receive Tournament Kits which include support materials for up to eight participants, promotional posters, and tournament prizes featuring Tournament Packs with exclusive foil cards and a playmat for the tournament winner.  Retailers can get one free Tournament Kit for each case of four games ordered.

This summer, Bandai will release another Chrono Clash game, Naruto Boruto (see "Assemble the Best Ninja Team in ‘Naruto Boruto Card Game’").  The Godzilla Card Game cards will not be compatible with other Chrono Clash games.
