Pacific Rim: The Video Game is a fighting game developed by Yuke's.[4] Pacific Rim: The Video Game was released July 12, 2013 in conjunction with the release of Pacific Rim.

Summary

Pacific Rim: The Video Game takes place in the year 2025. Kaiju appear out of the deep waters of the Pacific Ocean and systematically attempt to destroy the major cities of the world, threatening mankind’s very existence. Humans decide to stand up to the massive monsters by pooling all their wisdom and resources to create humanoid fighting machines known as Jaegers.

Gameplay

The Pacific Rim video game is a digital downloadable title released on Xbox LIVE that recreates the epic battles between massive Jaegers and Kaiju depicted in the film. The character models to appear in the game were created from the same model data used in the film, allowing the Jaegers and Kaiju in the game to remain true to their original forms. Each Jaeger and Kaiju is unique in design, with their own weapons and fighting styles, meaning players will have to alter their tactics to account for the attributes of their character and opponent.

This may include using a plasma cannon against a flying opponent, or using speed to your advantage against a bulky giant. The game will feature a variety of landscapes, from ocean waters to city, and will also contain destructible buildings in the stages. You can do a Power Move and a Fatal Assault move for each character. Power Moves are stronger regular moves and do a lot of damage to your opponent. Fatal Assault moves instantly KO your opponent, but they leave you vulnerable while they charge up. Plus, your opponent can dodge a Fatal Assault move which leaves you vulnerable for an attack as well. The different character's Power Moves and Fatal Assault moves are listed below.

Development

Pacific Rim: The Video Game was announced through the Australian Classification Board. The game was "E+10" by the board for fantasy violence.[14] Shortly thereafter screenshots from the game were leaked online by a user on NeoGaf.com[15] and some websites were requested by Yuke's to remove them[16]. Polygon.com reported that Yuke's intended to release the game on as multiplatform game[2]; platforms presumably included Windows and PlayStation Network. On July 7, 2013 Yuke's released the first teaser trailer for the Xbox 360.[17]

October 17, 2013, Anime News Network.com reported that Pacific Rim: The Video Game was available for purchase on the PlayStation Network for $9.99.[18][19]

Future Game

Qualcomm-sponsored E3 screening of Pacific Rim footage, del Toro expressed an interest in creating a "more fully-fledged Pacific Rim gaming experience."[20] "When you think about other mediums, the mistake Hollywood makes, I think, is to think of these things as a concept that was 1980s, which was ancillary product. In reality, however modest the multimedia thing may be, it should be trans-media. It should really be completing the world that you created in one medium in another.|Guillermo del Toro[21] He stipulated, if the film performed well enough, that he would be involved in every aspect of the future game's development to ensure the same quality with the graphic novel, Pacific Rim: Tales From Year Zero, and the film is given for players. "If you want it to be good, you have to be on it. The game would be the same,” he said.[21]

Downloadable Content

Downloadable content that expands the playing field will be released, including more Kaiju and Jaegers from the film, new battle stages, and extra missions. Additional downloadable content released periodically will give users more options for assembling and customizing their own personal Jaegers, to be used to combat the diverse fighting techniques employed by the Kaiju.[7] Players can join one of the online teams to battle against other users around the world. You can also pit one Kaiju against another to create match-ups not featured in the film.
