Tomorrow the first anime Godzilla film, Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters, will hit Japanese theaters. But just as we hit the release date's eleventh hour Toho Animation and Polygon have given us a tease of the sequel.

The second film of the Godzilla anime trilogy has the (very) rough translation, Godzilla: The Mobile City's Decisive Battle. We're waiting on Toho's official English title for the upcoming sequel. The film will be released in Japanese theaters May, 2018.

The brief teaser synopsis reveals,

"What is the city that was left on Earth 20,000 years after all urban structures should have been devastated? There is a scene that cuts out the moment that humanity confronted 'something' in the darkness where rubble was stacked. What is MechaGodzilla? A decisive weapon created by mankind to stop Godzilla?"


You can check out the teaser poster below:



MechaGodzilla has long been rumored as a likely monster in the anime continuity. Fans have noted images that look like a robotic Godzilla in press material for Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters. Which may add up with the title since a piece of pre-production art was captioned, "MechaGodzilla City":
