VANCOUVER, BC and BURBANK, Calif., Oct. 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Independent digital game developer and publisher Sun Machine Entertainment, in partnership with global content leader Legendary Entertainment, announced today the official soft-launch release of the action-packed mobile video game Go BIG! feat. Godzilla vs. Kong, marking the first major game integration for the new mobile game series. Go BIG! is now available to download for free in the Apple App Store and Google Play App Store in North America and select international markets.
Featuring never-before-seen animated versions of the two iconic Titans, Go BIG! feat. Godzilla vs. Kong builds on the unprecedented success of Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ smash-hit film Godzilla vs. Kong, released in theatres and on streaming platform HBO Max in March 2021 and amassing nearly $500 million worldwide at the box office thus far.
The high-quality, fun-filled casual mobile game begins with players selecting "Team Godzilla" or "Team Kong" as their chosen character before entering the "Titan Battlegrounds." Players must smash objects, dash through mayhem, and grow BIG to advance through each level, all while completing daily objectives to earn new characters and skins, collecting power-ups to boost their score, and challenging the Kong and Godzilla Bosses to get BIG points and crush opponents on the leaderboards.

Go BIG! feat. Godzilla vs. Kong is the first major installation of Go BIG!, designed and developed by Vancouver-based video game studio Sun Machine Entertainment.

With its broadly appealing gameplay, captivating characters, and dynamic world, Go BIG! was designed for seamless collaboration with compelling IP such as Godzilla vs. Kong.
