WayForward has announced they’re publishing 13AM Games’ kaiju-brawler Dawn of the Monsters.
The 2019-announced big monster fighting game will be published under WayForward, and is now set for a late 2021 release across Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X+S, PS4, PS5, and Nintendo Switch.
The new publishing agreement will see 13AM Games leading development on the game, with WayForward offering creative support and handling the distribution, marketing, and digital publishing duties for the game in North America and Europe.
“From the moment we laid eyes on Dawn of the Monsters, we knew it had the potential to be something special,” said WayForward Tyrannical Overlord Voldi Way. “13AM Games is a phenomenal developer that has been a great collaborative partner in the past, and we are very excited to help them bring this unique vision to life.”
“I’ve been a WayForward fan ever since I first got my hands on Godzilla: Domination! on the GBA, and my passion for the work they do has only grown since then,” 13AM Games CEO Alex Rushdy added. “So it’s not only very exciting but also very fitting that we are partnering up for Dawn of the Monsters. For many of us this partnership is a dream come true! This is our biggest game to date and we’re really happy to have WayForward in our corner. Since they are traditionally a developer, they really understand all the process that goes into making a game, which has made the working relationship smooth and fruitful. We can’t wait to share our work on Dawn of the Monsters, we’re really pushing a bold, new, visceral vision of what a co-op 2D action game can be.”
