    I don't know if this has been brought up elsewhere, but with all this speculation that Stern is making Godzilla, has anyone considered it could be Godzilla vs Kong to go with the movie opening?

    #2 7 months ago

    Crap. That did not cross my mind! IN!!!

    #3 7 months ago

    Doubtful. The rumor was they got the Toho license. I would love a new Godzilla game, and a new kong game honestly.

    Possible, but I would seriously doubt it. Games just really aren't released like that these days I don't think.

    That’d be more than 1 license though right? Doubtful it’d happen then. That said if you battled through the monsters mortal Kombat style, and Kong was the final boss... Maybee that wouldn’t cost much?

    Get a mothra team up..

    and will they get the King Kong Character Rights?

    Stern has made it pretty clear they aren't great at getting new movie assets, or its too hard.

    Obviously too long development for JJP

    I think King Kong is public domain, as long as you don't directly rip off copyrighted works like the original movie.

    American Pinball territory ?!

    King Kong is not public domain - the original movie IS the originating art.

    I was hoping they were going campy late 50s -early 70s Godzilla with Mothra, Rodan, and that crazy three-headed dragon mofo. The newer Godzilla movies have been decent-good but I have a soft spot for those old black and white badly dubbed ones that were on public TV on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.

    That's Toho and that's the rumor.

    Good. Most everything new sucks anyway. I'm hoping for either the 70's Zilla or an original take on the franchise. I love that JP wasn't based on the films and even themes I really love like Alien wouldn't need to have movie assets for me to enjoy it. Its a game and I almost invite a new take on it.

    I started a Godzilla thread already

    Cool, thank you. I tried to discern when the Toho era was on the Godzilla Wikipedia page and it read like it was 1950s to the present day.

    #15 7 months ago

    We just need Stern to announce old Godzilla.
    Enough with the puzzles already.

    Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

    Thats not exactly correct.
    It was released in a novelized version in 1932 and there are artistic depictions of Kong as a giant gorilla that predate the 1933 RKO film.

    Also King Kong as a license is not held by one entity. There are multiple different licenses held by various entities.

    #17 7 months ago

    Also, what Levi said about public domain is partially true as well.
    Universal tried suing Nintendo when Donkey Kong came out in 1982 and failed.
    Just as multiple entities own various versions of King Kong, there are aspects of it that are public domain under a broader generalization. This is why Universal lost the lawsuit against Nintendo.

    #18 7 months ago

    Well, if they can't get the actual assets they could just substitute with the Gieco lizard and Curious George....

    You are absolutely right! Forgot about the Donkey Kong debacle. That is a pretty funny case.

    Did you mean “Showa” era? Toho is the company

    Maybe two LE versions. One for Kong and one for Godzilla.

    If you would like to be anal aboot it sure,, but I say Toho because it would be Japanese Godzilla.
    Using a bit of sense we can eliminate it being anything other than classic Godzilla and his buddies. They won't be rolling out a Godzilla final wars machine.

    Yeah well that applies to my grandparents, WW2 era and their distain for modern rights of, well u know. but When it comes to movies, TV shows and music which tends to be the base of most pins yeah it sucks in comparison to the 70's 80's and 90's.

    When I was a kid and our family got our first VCR in the mid-eighties, my parents let my sister and me get one movie and I chose the old TOHO King Kong vs. Godzilla movie. I must have watched that movie dozens of times. I found it on DVD about a year ago.

    Toho circa '64

    The Criterion collection (!) released a box set of the first era of Godzilla movies (I'd mention that this is the "Showa" era, but who wants to actually be specific about such things), and the original *japanese* version of King Kong vs. Godzilla is included. It's not dramatically different, but it's very cool to see after all these years of the same 'ol hackjobbed US version. Kinda pricey at $180, but it's the only way to get it without importing a Japanese disc. The transfer is great:

    Yes! And when side by side the topper would be two big arms arm wrestling. Of coarse, for an additional fee of $1954.

    Just wished they had made a EM version in 1963 when the first movie came out.

    But the movie looks ok to me as the Godzilla pin is from the 1998 movie and not the TOHO pictures.

    They clearly know what they're doing is ridiculous, so they amped it up. Think about it, are we supposed to take 50-story tall gorilla at face value? lol!

    true. though i have no problem checking my sense of reality at the door when i watch a movie. i just want good writing and storytelling. that trailer looks like a full on boring cash grab. not unlike most of the recent godzilla films. i can already tell i won't be able to decide if i'm waiting for it to begin or end. but the original films with an actor literally wearing a godzilla costume, on the other hand. sign me up!

    there's no way this is going to have good writing LOL. I really liked the 2014 US Godzilla, and even the Toho ones have been really upping their game. 100% agree- man in suit! haha
