Today Bandai Namco Entertainment released a batch of new screenshots of its upcoming survival game City Shrouded in Shadows by the team at Granzella.

We get to see how the hero will have to perform sudden actions to avoid danger, he will also be consistently pursued by criminals aiming for his life.

We get the reveal of the Type J-9 Griffon, and see how it will fight against the Ingram labors of the mobile police force. Another nasty critter is the alien Dada from the Ultraman franchise, came to Earth to gather human specimen. The hero will encounter him while wandering in a laboratory at night.

The MFS-3 Type-3 Mecha Dragon will also enter the city to oppose a rampaging Godzilla, but it will crush a building in which the hero has sought shelter, creating another very dangerous situation.

The Eight Angel from the Evangelion franchise will then appear, prompting all three EVA units to intercept.

Three new characters have also been introduiced. Chief Researcher Mizuki Sawada is a senior scientist at the National Cosmic Rays Research Institute. She hides in a storage room when the institute is attacked by mysterious aliens.

Haruomi Sasaki is the Deputy Director of the institute. Respected by his colleagues, he decides to remain in his lab during the incidents caused by the monsters to study the purple lights seen in the sky a few days before.

Kosuke Asano is the president of a small IT company called Hyacinth Soft. He also stayed at his workplace during the attack of the monsters, but his foot was injured, and now he’s in trouble because he can’t deliver his work.
