Selected filmography


  • According to Simon Strange, all monster sound effects for Godzilla: Unleashed were provided to Atari and Pipeworks by Toho, and the developers themselves did not knowingly sample stock sound effects from other actors.[citation needed] Obsidius and Krystalak's roars happened to both be stock sound effects performed by Frank Welker for productions such as The Land Before Time, and like all other roars in the game were provided by Toho.
