Ultraman: Kaiju Kombat Video Game Planned For Fall 2020

Elevated Games is developing a new video game featuring classic Ultraman heroes and kaiju with a planned release in Fall 2020.

Following last August’s announcement of the global expansion of the Ultraman series, California-based game developer Elevated Games has partnered with Tsuburaya to create a brand new Ultraman video game. Ultraman: Kaiju Kombat will be the first Ultraman video game created by a non-Japanese developer, and it will feature chess-inspired combat between Ultras and kaiju on a chessboard.

The Bitcoin market is worldwide and the citizens of China and Japan have been particularly active in its purchase along with other Asian countries. However, recently in Bitcoin news the Chinese government has tried to suppress its activity in that country. That action drove the value of Bitcoin down for a short time but it soon surged back and is now close to its previous value.

Bitcoin mining refers to the process by which new Bitcoin is created. With conventional currency, government decides when and where to print and distribute it. With Bitcoin, “miners” use special software to solve complex mathematical problems and are issued a certain number of Bitcoin in return.

While ‘bitcoin’ is a very commonly heard term, there are few who really know what it is. While it is a trading system, it is the most different from others for two major reasons. For one, it involves a form of digital currency that can be transferred easily. What makes it more unique, however, is the fact that it does not involve any banks or other official financial institutions. It is merely a peer-to-peer system that is independent and unaccountable. Following are some of the most important recent bitcoin news and highlights:

Anonymity – If you want to carry out simple transactions without using your personal identity and bank account details, bitcoins make it possible. All transactions that are carried out are anonymous, unless you choose otherwise, and cannot be tracked back to you. For every transaction, there is an address created that is unique and will never be repeated.

Receiver’s privileges – Unlike most other forms of trading, bitcoins are irreversible and you cannot cancel a payment once you have sent it. If you must reverse the transaction, you will need the receiver’s consent. Also, the transactions take about 10 minutes to complete, unlike other financial transactions that are processed almost immediately.

While speaking with Ultraman Galaxy, Elevated Games Co-Founder Jaron Hinds described the gameplay.

“The game is going to be an auto-chess battler. You’ll start with one Ultra on a chess board facing off against another player. Let’s say you send out Ultraman and he fights Baltan and defeats him with his Spacium Beam. Ultraman moves to the next round, but now its two on two. Maybe it’s Ultraman and Father of Ultra fighting two Kaiju. Or, maybe you’ve recruited a Kaiju to aid Ultraman. What we eventually end up with is a ten on ten all-out battle, with beam and Kaiju attacks flying across the field. We really want to emphasize to the player is that these are 140-foot Ultras and Kaiju who are knocking down buildings and causing absolute chaos.”

The game’s concept evolved from a fighting game about the founder of Bitcoin facing off against a banker into one where the human player becomes a mech through inserting chips into their arm. Hinds explained that after noticing similarities between the latter concept and Netflix’s anime series, ULTRAMAN, Elevated Games reached out to Tsuburaya, not expecting to get a response.

Other in-game features will include the ability to customize the environment surrounding the chessboard, leveling up characters to make them stronger, and getting access to golden age Ultraman characters and all of their kaiju and alien opponents. Hinds explains that his team also wants to use this game to “give players the opportunity to become more intimate with the media surrounding Ultraman as they build their teams.”

The Ultraman: Kaiju Kombat video game is expected to release in Fall of 2020 with the Alpha soft launch set for September. Players can sign up for the pre-launch at this link.
