The first trailer for Ultra Kaiju Monster Rancher asks an important question, “How would you like to raise your own Ultra Kaiju?” I replied, “Yes, please. I would love that. Give it to me now.” In the face of the dull, medium-sized creatures you used to raise in Monster Rancher, Ultra Kaiju Monster Rancher lets you take care of some giant sweet boys. You will raise the likes of Zettan, Gomora and Alien Baltan – All Kaiju are licensed from the Ultraman franchise. Many other existing Kaiju appear in the game, and you’ll bring them in to help the townspeople in ways only a giant monster can. You can also participate in massive monster battles or watch giant creatures waddling like clumsy big kids. As a nice bonus, Kaiju can be bred, causing wild combinations of their attributes to appear in their offspring. It all seems like a lot of goofy fun.
We’re not sure if the Ultra Kaiju Monster Rancher will come to North America, but it’s expected to come to Japan and Southeast Asia this year. At the very least, a version will be translated into English for those who wish to enter.
