Ohhh no / They say he's got to go (to PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4) / Go go Godzilla!

Bandai Namco has revealed Godzilla, a game where Toho's King of Monsters will crush buildings, puny human weaponry and other kaiju beneath his sizable heel as he lays waste to the world. A trailer, revealed during last night's Game Awards and viewable above, also reveals that favorites like Mothra, Mechagodzilla and King Ghidorah will join the party. (What, no Rodan? No Gigan? No Anguirus?)

Gameplay will focus on Big G smashing his way through a landscape, fending off human and kaiju attacks as he seeks to destroy the level's Energy Generator. An associated press release touts that the game will also feature a Diorama Mode so you can pose your favorite monsters for snapshots of destruction, as well as a "Movie-Style Camera Angle System" - though what that means in terms of gameplay is yet to be seen.
