Trivia

  • Godzilla Defense Force uses, or at one point used, a number of different or irregular English names for some monsters and vehicles. The majority of these were corrected in update 1.2.1.
    • Gabara was called "Gavalla."
    • Jet Jaguar was called "Jet-Jagger." This was instead changed to "Jet-Jaguar," still with a hyphen.
    • Biollante's Flower Beast Form is called "Biollante (Plant Form)." This is somewhat misleading as the official Japanese name for her final form translates to "Biollante Plant Beast Form."
    • Destoroyah's Aggregate Form was called "The Aggregate Destoroyah," despite the name of his Perfect Form being arranged normally as "Destoroyah (Perfect Form)." This was corrected to "Destoroyah (Aggregate Form)."
    • SpaceGodzilla's name was spelled "Spacegodzilla," instead of the trademarked camelCase spelling.
    • Monster X's name was spelled with a hyphen, as "Monster-X."
    • The Dimension Tide was called the "Orbital Cannon."
  • The game is also the first known piece of official media to provide certain English names for some specific forms and iterations of monsters or characters.
    • It is the first known medium to use the English name "Modified Gigan" for Gigan's upgraded form from Godzilla: Final Wars.
    • It is the first known medium to use the name "Mothra Leo" in English to refer to the initial imago form of the primary incarnation of Mothra featured in the Rebirth of Mothra trilogy. Prior to this game, the character's original imago stage has only been referred to in English as "Exceled Mothra," "Excelled Mothra," or simply "Mothra" in official media.
    • It is also the first known medium to refer to King Ghidorah's younger form from Rebirth of Mothra III in English as "Cretaceous King Ghidorah."
    • This marks the first instance of the Showa incarnation of the Xiliens actually being referred to under that name in an official medium. Prior to this, the Xiliens from Invasion of Astro-Monster have typically been called "Alien X," "Planet X People," or "Invaders from Planet X," with only their Millennium incarnation being referred to as "Xiliens."
  • Godzilla Defense Force marks the first known video game appearances of Ganimes, Maguma, Sanda, and Gaira since the 1998 Dreamcast game, Godzilla Generations and its tie-in VMU game, Collect Godzilla: Giant Monster Assembly.
  • Godzilla Defense Forces Tokyo stage contains the third video game appearance of the Godzilla Head.
    • Unlike in the real world however, the Godzilla Head featured, appears to be designed after the head of the DaisensoGoji suit.
  • While the image for the Codex entry for King Ghidorah ('91) is correct, the image on his collectible card shows an image of the 1998 incarnation of the character. A similar error occurred in the PlayStation 3 and 4 Godzilla game.

Well, lost all my progress from Tokyo to Arizona just because I decided to use Time Travel. What's the point of using time travel if it resets everything back to zero and you have to restart everything again from Tokyo stage 1?

I don't mind the ads, I am more pissed at microtranactions. At least this game gives you boosts and relief supplies just by watching ads rather than paying 5 bucks for it.

The purpose of time travelling in the game is to start over and receive time crystals and use said crystals to purchase items that act like passive assist items

Since the game is now out in my country, I was able to play it since last night. Level 91 on Tokyo, on my experience, its gameplay is similar to Godzilla: Kaiju Collection, but has different mechanics. For example, rather than clicking the "ATTACK" button at the lower part of the screen, you can just tap the screen anywhere to spawn military forces to defend your city. At the tenth stage (10, 20, 30), you get a major kaiju attack, with a 30-second deadline or else you're doomed. Cards are collected when a kaiju is defeated, which are perks to your forces (such as multipler x2). Cards also unlocks the monster's biography. Your defense bases can be upgraded from the gold coins collected on each kaiju defeat. I think I like this game at 6/10.

For some reason, the New York City stage does not show up on the game, only Arizona. According to this screenshot, there was supposed to be a NYC stage but now it is removed or not available in Early Access.

Good point. Maybe this is how they will add new monsters; currently a lot of familiar faces are missing, and there have been some shown in trailers and pictures that aren't included in the current codex. Perhaps they'll expand the codex with monsters as their stages are rolled out...

They already did, the May 17 update increased the CODEX info from 82 to 107, I can see new monsters locked such as Gorosaurus, Gaira, Sanda, Maguma, Godzilla 2016 (each form), Anguirus, Kamoebas, and more I think.

Stuff from the MonsterVerse isn't expected to show up here, and even if it did I doubt we would be seeing Rokmutul or Pterodactyl any time soon. The only ones of the rest I would actually expect to show up are Varan, Anguirus, Kamoebas and maybe Maguma. But they have not shown up in the game yet.

That's just something many different official sources have conflicted with each other on for years. Some sources place Destroy All Monsters in the 1990's and chronologically at the end of the Showa series, while others assume it takes place in 1968.

Monsters are unlocked in your codex by unpacking digital cards. You get I think one free pack daily and various other packs as leveling-up rewards. But the majority of them will likely be microtransactions.

I play both games, but I prefer this one compared to Jurassic World: The Game. You can play the game and enjoy it without any microtransactions but you'll need to watch ads as a replacement. In Jurassic World you actually need to pay real money to get something.
