While it is natural to root for the good guy in the fight against evil, sometimes, you might feel the need to stand on the other side. In the case of the adventures of Ultraman, the many Ultra Kaiju that the hero faces may just make for the perfect companions, and you will be able to put that to the test when Ultra Kaiju Monster Rancher launches later this year.
The Bandai Namco title is a collaboration between the beloved Monster Rancher series and the Ultra Kaiju, leading to a game where players can raise their own Ultra Kaiju. And just like the monster-breeding games, Ultra Kaiju Monster Rancher will feature many familiar things to do.
Players can have their creatures take part in different activities during the week, including feeding, training, going on errands, and even adventures. And when the time comes, send them off into tournaments to battle against your rivals. By improving their stats and learning new moves, you will have a better shot at dominating the opposition just like in Monster Rancher.
Ultra Kaiju Monster Rancher will feature over 200 Kaiju, and the potential combinations are simply mind-boggling. The Song Search function can be used to play songs that will generate a new Ultra Kaiju, and if that is not enough, the game also supports monster generation using NFC-enabled devices or items such as transport ID cards.
With the game set to launch later in the year on the Nintendo Switch, players hoping to see things from the other side of the fence should keep a close eye on things.
