Godzilla is coming to the big screen next year, facing off against the current king of Skull Island in Kong, but fans have had to suffer through a number of delays before once again jumping into the world of the Legendary Kaiju-Verse, though you may be happy to hear that the king of the kaiju is looking to make its return in an anime cameo. In the anime film of Shinkalion The Movie, it appears as though the lizard king is making an appearance in a far chillier appearance than anything we've seen before.
Godzilla is no stranger to the world of anime, having been given a number of anime films that arrived on the streaming service of Netflix, as well as making various cameos across the medium. For example, My Hero Academia had a super hero in its first feature length film that looked exactly like the recently crowned king of the kaiju.
Twitter Outlet Kaiju News Outlet shared the clip of the upcoming appearance of Godzilla in the lesser known anime feature length film that has already been released in Japan in Shinkalion The Movie, which sees the characters battling against scores of monsters across the board:
