Yesterday, PlatinumGames shocked the world with the announcement of their new upcoming game, "Project G.G. A Go-Go!" Now, the title is a work progress, but the game itself is heavily influenced by the tokusatsu genre. From the trailer which fans can view below, the game will feature a hero that transforms into an Ultra-like being to fight kaiju. However, while our hero will be reference to Ultraman, their transformation is an obvious homage to Kamen Rider. This leaves us with the question of what other references are in the game? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6inZzkZmiI&feature=youtu.be&fbclid=IwAR1ANmXnWLhpTgU2FFfYL_inx3bV8NuNCDWt9IAu7upHx8oOGtjmZ19fv2w Now, the game is being directed by PlatinumGames' own, Hideki Kamiya; the mastermind behind Devil May Cry, Viewtiful Joe...

Another tokusatsu actress is discovered to be deeply in love, as actress Rin Takanashi is soon to be married. And this time, it's not on the set of her 2009 show Samurai Sentai Shinkenger, where her superpowered character ShinkenPink took part in a fake wedding to lure a nasty demoness intent on ruining the happy nuptials of innocent couples just starting their lives together. We assume no monsters are invited to the upcoming event. The announcement came early Saturday, when Sponichi Annex (Sports Nippon) reported the story.

Back in the late 90s, Toho Studios produced a low-budget Godzilla series for kids called Godzilla Island, featuring the use of various Bandai figurines alongside scenes incorporating a small cast of actors. Among them was Jiro Dan, otherwise known for portraying Hideki Go / Ultraman Jack in The Return of Ultraman. Now, for a limited time Toho Studios is uploading Godzilla Island onto the Godzilla Channel. From Monday to Friday, a new episode will be uploaded daily, with episodes being available to stream for only four weeks. Godzilla Island ran for 256 episodes from October 6, 1997 to September 30, 1998. Each episode is roughly 3 minutes long, so it is an easy view. However, while the series is available to stream internationally, it does not feature close captioned subtitles. htt
