Pacific Rim game incoming, developed by Yuke's [Update: Leaked Screenshots]

I probably wouldn't hold my breath for this being any good.

VG247 said:
A listing for a multi-platform game titled Pacific Rim has turned up on the Australian Classification Board.

Rated M, the game contains moderate impact fantasy violence and an online element, which may suggest multiplayer brawler of some kind.

The subject matter would certainly lend itself to a robots versus monsters fighter, and the developer – Yuke’s – is well know for its WWE and UFC titles.

For a downloadable movie tie in, I think it looks passable.

Creating a custom Jaeger is a nice addition.

Looks... OK. At least if they're aiming for a smallish downloadable title, it might end up being competent.
Real Steel seemed to do good on XBLA (Seemed to be in the Top 20 for a good amount of time in the Activity posts).

Nothing more than a licensed cash grab you'd typically find on iOS after a movie releases.

Times gotta get dat work somehow

Well, the upshot to this meh-looking game is now we know the names of some of the kaiju: "Leatherback," "Otachi" and "Scunner."

Well, time to watch the new movie trailer for the 100th time.

You know I know people will shit on this, and probably with good reason, but we are never going to get another Godzilla, or Roboy Alchemeic drive so as long ad this is decent ill be thrilled. Give me a good selection of robots/monsters, and make it fun and ill buy it.

I would be shocked, shocked, if there is no tie-in game when the new Godzilla movie comes out.

According to Simon Strange the rights to Godzilla were bought by an company not to long ago. Thats why his kickstarter was changed from a godzilla game revival to kaiju combat.
