The end has begun, 13 days to find the truth, 13 days to save the innocent, 13 days until the end…

Finally, with all this Kaijuu mania going on these days thanks to movies like Pacific Rim and the upcoming 2014 remake of Godzilla, we take a look at Level 5’s kaiju game, Attack of the Friday Monsters! A Tokyo Tale. The 3DS game is introduced by Millennium Kitchen’s Kaz Ayabe and introduces us to a boy named Souta who lives in a world where giant monsters attack every Friday and fights someone who suspiciously looks like Ultraman.
