These giant shadows include Ultraman, Nise Ultraman, Alien Zarab, Godzilla, King Ghidorah, Evangelion Unit-01, The Fourth Angel, Gamera, Soldier Legion, and Patlabor’s AV-98 “Ingram,” CRL-98 “Pyro-Buster,” Type 5Q/2C “Grau Bear,” and more.

? A Sci-Fi Survival Action Adventure Game from Two Companies

City Shrouded in Shadow is a new sci-fi survival action adventure game from Bandai Namco in collaboration with Granzella, the studio led by Kazuma Kujo, creator of the natural disaster-themed survival action adventure game series Disaster Report.

? A Threat Brought About by Giant Shadows

Neon lights that illuminate the city night, building lights, convenience stores, and people hustling and bustling about the city. In a city built with a sharp attention to detail, a giant shadow approaches. The tranquil city and its familiar, everyday streets become engulfed by the “giant shadow!”

City Shrouded in ShadowCity Shrouded in Shadow depicts a threat brought about by giant shadows. The giant shadows are on a completely different scale than humans, who have no means of matching them in size. How will humanity take action, and what choices will they make in order to survive this “living threat”—?

This is an innovative “sci-fi survival action adventure game” that depicts the story of one person as the protagonist living in the extraordinary brought about by “giant shadows.”

? The Story of the Citizens Living in the Extraordinary Brought About by Giant Shadows

This is not the story of a hero—. It is your story.

How does a human without any special powers survive the threat of a desperate situation brought about by the giant shadows approaching the city?

The protagonist of this game is not a hero with special powers, but he is a great man burdened with a big mission. A normal human that you can find anywhere… that is the protagonist of this game. He will sometimes cooperate with and sometimes oppose his fellow humans while accomplishing his purpose in surviving the threat of the danger that relentlessly approaches. This is a depiction of the threat and drama that unfolds at the feet of the giant shadows.

? The Giant Shadow Whose True Form is the “Giant of Light”

City Shrouded in ShadowTwo “giants” suddenly appeared in the city, one of which destroys buildings and covers the city in flames. The other one appears alongside a light and fights to protect the city and its people. What appears before the protagonist’s eyes is an intense battle that unfolds on an overwhelming scale.

City Shrouded in ShadowThe living threats attack the people. Any movement by the giants is a major threat to humans. The Giant of Light fights against the other giant, and the results, what reveals the other giant’s true form is—.

The shadow’s true form comes to surface in the dark of the night. In the fierce battle that unfolded in the city, there was a Giant of Light.

City Shrouded in ShadowThe other giant’s true form is finally revealed as that of a space alien. His name—-Alien Zarab. By appearing in disguise as a “Fake Ultraman,” Alien Zarab planned to have the Giant of Light, Ultraman, misunderstood as an enemy of the planet.

City Shrouded in ShadowAlien Zarab, who got Ultraman out of the way for a short time, continues to destroy the city. Peeping out from buildings, Alien Zarab tramples down on the city. Humanity does not have the means to combat this overwhelming destruction. These fierce attacks drive the protagonist and heroine into a corner.

An alien invasion. A trap lurking behind a supposed friendship.

? The Giant Shadow Whose True Form is the “King of Monsters”

The protagonist and company rush to a specific building at night. At that time, two giant shadows approach the city. The rays of light rush along to cover buildings flames, and the roaring of the two giant monsters cuts through the city. In order to accomplish his mission, the protagonist runs through the sinking city.

City Shrouded in ShadowThe “King of Monsters” reveals himself before the protagonist and the others with a huge splash, who were all aboard the same search boat. Humanity’s chance meeting with “Godzilla.” That giant’s movements shake and swing the boat. The loaded containers shift about, and in the broken steel tower scraped by the shock, the protagonist and the others’ escape begins.

City Shrouded in ShadowThe roars of two monsters that tear through the night. Godzilla versus King Ghidorah—the greatest battle has begun.

City Shrouded in ShadowThe giant monsters trade blow after blow. The shocks created shake buildings and shatter windows. Such overwhelming power leaves the humans living in the extraordinary unable to move.

City Shrouded in ShadowWhat unfolds before their eyes is the decisive battle between two giant monsters.

? The Giant Shadow Whose True Form is an “All-Purpose Decisive Humanoid Weapon”

City Shrouded in ShadowA new giant shadow appears before the protagonist and company. For humanity, this Fourth Angel was a threat. The attack aircraft that were a fruitless effort to counterattack against the Angel’s fierce attacks were shot down. The Evangelion Unit-01 that appeared from the sky at that time confronted the Fourth Angel with the Gatling gun on his arm.

City Shrouded in ShadowEvangelion Unit-01 rapid-fires its Gatling gun at the Fourth Angel. The countless number of ammunition shells strike at the asphalt. However, it seems that the attacks have not passed through to the Angel at all due to its A.T. Field. Is there a means to fight against this Angel that so calmly invaded?

City Shrouded in ShadowThe giant brought about a threat to humanity. And fighting against it is All-Purpose Decisive Humanoid Weapon.

City Shrouded in ShadowUnable to effectively attack due to the Fourth Angel’s A.T. field, Evangelion Unit-01 is driven into a corner. Unit-01 damages its head. However, Unit-01, which appears to have stopped functioning, rises and restarts with the roar of a beast, then swoops down on the Angel.

City Shrouded in Shadow? The Giant Shadow Whose True Form is a “Flying Giant Monster”

City Shrouded in ShadowThe protagonist and heroine take refuge in the subway to escape from the threat. However, following an urgent broadcast, the trains suddenly stop. In order to get above ground and escape on foot, the protagonist must move forward with the other passengers in a subway station shrouded in darkness where never before seen monsters approach.

City Shrouded in ShadowLooking up at the building, a plant-like giant grass body is rooting from the top. Legion Soldiers emerged from the basement and appeared before the great number of curious onlookers and attacked. When it all turned to panic, a giant monster swooped down from the sky.

City Shrouded in ShadowGamera does not tolerate enemies of Earth. In order to counter the alien invasion, the large beast swoops down from the heavens.

City Shrouded in ShadowWith a flashlight in hand, the protagonist moves forward into the darkness with the heroine. They slip through the countless Legion Soldiers awaiting them and aim for the ground above. In the subway station, movement is restricted by Legion’s grass body roots, which blocks the protagonist and company’s path like a labyrinth.

City Shrouded in ShadowEscape from the dilemma where countless shadows lurk in the darkness of the underground and the roots of a grass body extend to turn your path into a labyrinth.
