City Shrouded in Shadow (巨影都市,   Kyoei Toshi, lit. Shadow City) is a survival role-playing game developed by Granzella and published by Bandai Namco for the PlayStation 4. It was released on October 19, 2017 in Japan. The game utilizes the license to multiple franchises revolving around giant monsters and/or robots: Godzilla, the Ultra Series, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Gamera, and Patlabor.


City Shrouded in Shadow has the player assume the role of a civilian in the fictional Ichi City, and can be played from a first or third person point-of-view. The game features action and dialogue choices throughout, which rarely affect the game's story, instead mostly determining how the character behaves and interacts with others. The game consists of 17 stages through which the player's character and their allies must progress, avoiding dangers such as the attacking giant creatures or a group of Yakuza hitmen, the latter of which are not directly present in every level. Some of the giant beings in the game, such as the Ultra Crusaders, Mothra, Evangelion Units, and Gamera, are actually benevolent and will combat the more malicious creatures, but due to their gigantic size, they still pose a significant danger to the player. Some levels allow the player to control vehicles, including cars and motorcycles. Throughout levels, save points are available, also allowing the player to refill their health automatically. At the end of each stage, an overview of the level is shown as a newspaper, where the player can purchase clothing items with currency collected during each level.
