Fans of gaming's indie scene will want to keep an eye on Dawn of the Monsters, an upcoming co-op brawler developed by Runbow studio 13AM Games and published by WayForward (Shantae, Contra 4, Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp).

First teased back in 2019, Dawn of the Monsters has up to two players fighting giant monsters in "devastating Kaiju combat," wrecking the fictional city of New Toronto. Thanks to IGN, we now have our first proper look at the game in an all-new trailer (above) and screenshots (below).

IGN notes that the game features four playable monsters – Megadon, Ganira, Aegis Prime, and Tempest Galahad – and that each has its own Brutal Rage abilities, Cataclysm Attacks, and finishing moves. It'll include 35 missions in total, with over a dozen regular enemy types to conquer and the ability to customise your kaiju.

Dawn of the Monsters arrives on Nintendo Switch in "early 2022"; we'll make sure to keep an eye out for any more news as we get closer to that time frame.
