Two giant new Kaiju are setting their sights on North America via SRS Cinema – Reigo: Kind of the Sea Monsters; and Raiga: God of the Monsters. Both will be available on limited edition Bluray and VHS exclusively at SRS Cinema, with wide release DVD’s coming in Nov. and (tentatively) Feb via MVD/SRS.
Limited Editions for both titles will be rolled out for presales starting Thurs, 7/25/19 at 7pm EST. They will be limited to 200 Blurays (but see more on that below) and 50 VHS. The movies will go to replication/duplication around 8/25 with copies expected to ship around Mid-Sept. Each physical media format – Bluray, DVD and VHS – will have artwork exclusive to that format only.
On the Blurays, please note these are professionally run BD-R’s via Discmakers. We have done over 70 limited editions BD-R’s over the past 3 years and they play as good and are as durable as pressed Blurays (studies show they last as long too). Our Bluray releases have rave reviews and 1000s of enthusiastic and vocal fans. However, we know some fans prefer pressed media, so we are proposing this – if the titles can sell out – ie all 200 units – before we go to replication, we will run fully pressed Blurays (the limited editions will then expand to 1000 units on Bluray, and that will be the max limit on these, so still very rare!). So please, pre-order/reserve your copies early and spread the word to help us achieve these goals!
REIGO: KING OF THE SEA MONSTERS – The battleship Yamato, the largest and strongest of its time, is on patrol when a lookout spots a massive shape half-submerged in the distance. Believing it to be an enemy submarine, they fire and score a direct hit. But they are shocked when the object emits a strange cry as it sinks beneath the waves.
Soon after, something much bigger arrives, the massive kaiju Reigo, seething with rage at the murder of its cub. The monster attacks the Combined Fleet with incredible ferocity and awesome destructive power. The naval forces are caught off guard, and Reigo is able to destroy the escort ships and damage the Yamato before returning to the ocean depths.
Now the stage is set for a final battle to unfold between the world’s largest battleship and the mysterious dragon-like monster – who will prevail?
RAIGA: GOD OF THE MONSTERS – Global warming leads to excessive melting of the southern polar ice cap, disrupting Earth’s ecosystem. The receding ice brings long dormant ancient sea creatures back to life, monsters that set their sights on Japan. Among the kaiju is an enormous sea beast the locals refer to as the legendary Raiga. The monster attacks the city of Asakusa, bringing death and destruction as he tramples building and lays waste to the military. Can Raiga be stopped, or will all of Japan be destroyed by his fury?
Update: T-shirts have been added for these films on the SRS website, two types are available a video cover image on the front, and a all over print (front and back). The regular one comes in 4 colors (black, navy, white, and gray), 100% cotton, and come in sizes S to 3XL, the all over print comes in sizes XS to 2XL, and is polyester. The regular retails for $15, the all over for $36.50, use the same link above to order.

TORONTO, CANADA -- July 09, 2019 -- 13AM Games, the award-winning independent studio behind Runbow and Double Cross, is excited to announce the unveiling of their third title, Dawn of the Monsters. The official reveal will take place on July 12th, 2019 during the opening ceremonies of Chicago’s G-Fest XXVI, the world’s largest kaiju convention. Attendees of the opening ceremonies will have the chance to see an exclusive trailer featuring the first publicly-seen footage of the game. More information will follow for the general public in the coming months.
Dawn of the Monsters is a couch co-op, brawling action game that takes up to four players on a worldwide tour of destruction. Players take on roles from an all new cast of kaiju and are tasked with defeating the “Nephilim”, a horde of monsters that are destroying the planet. Conquer four unique worlds and unlock The Maw, an endless onslaught of kaiju brawls. Featuring beautiful 2.5D graphics inspired by the works of Mike Mignola, combat inspired by classics from the action and fighting game genres, and fully destructible environments, couch co-op in Dawn of the Monsters is bigger and badder than ever before.
G-Fest will also feature a Dawn of the Monsters panel led by Creative Director and CEO of 13AM Games, Alex Rushdy. Alex is a longtime kaiju fanatic, and will be partnering his toy company, Seismic, LLC with 13AM Games to produce soft vinyl figures of one of the game’s headlining kaiju, Megadon.
