Earlier this week, Hasbro recently announced that the company is collaborating with Toho Studios to create two Godzilla editions of classic games. The first game release features Godzilla, the King of the Monsters and other kaiju monopolizing Japan through Hasbro and Parker Brothers’ iconic game Monopoly. However, Monopoly: Godzilla will also include fictional locations and businesses from the various movies, alongside actual places in Japan. Whereas, the second Godzilla game is a Jenga: Extreme Edition, which features an all-new timed destruction mechanic. The new mechanic will feature rolling a die to advance Godzilla towards the Jenga tower and leading to different outcomes; either Godzilla will destroy the tower, or it will topple due to the players. Nevertheless, below are the official descriptions for the games provided by Hasbro:
