The website also confirms the same staff and cast will be returning to the film with the exception of Daisuke Ono's Col. Leland. (For obvious reasons.) Additionally, a more well rounded English synopsis has been delivered by the official site:
Rising from the depths of the planet is a new breed of monster, dubbed “Godzilla Earth.” Evolving for 20,000 years, the creature stands 300 meters high, weighs over 100,000 tons and wields such overwhelmingly destructive power that Haruo and company have no choice but to run for their lives.
"Coming to Haruo’s rescue, however, is Miana, a member of an aboriginal tribe called the Houtua. They are the first humanoid people the returnees have encountered. Could they descend from humans? “Our tribal god was destroyed by Godzilla. All that we have left are these eggs. Anyone who has tried to fight or resist him has been drowned in fire,” the tribespeople say to Haruo, who responds with: “This is our last hope of recovering our home.”
Meanwhile, Bilusaludo commander, Galu-gu is elated to discover that the Houtua tribe’s arrowheads are made of a nanometal or a self-sustaining metal. It had been developed in the 21st century as an “anti-Godzilla” killer weapon deployed at their decisive battle fought at the foot of Mt. Fuji, but had been destroyed before it could be activated in the form of a “Mecha-Godzilla.” The nanometal was its base substance, and proof that the manufacturing plant can still be used."
The manufacturing plant may be the key to both reactivating and enhancing MechaGodzilla to fight a 300 meter incarnation of the King of the Monsters. It also seems to hint at Mothra, given the Houtua tribe's "god" and her "two eggs". The character Miana also has a twin sister named Maina--Tribal twins are usually a dead ringer for Mothra's priests in the Godzilla franchise. (Shobijin, Cosmos, Elias.)
XAI will once again perform the film's theme song. (Most likely to be heard during the end credits, ala Planet of the Monsters.) The song is called, "The Sky Falls".
Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle stars the voice talents of Mamoru Miyano (Mobile Suit Gundam 00, Ultraman Zero: The Movie), Takahiro Sakurai (Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans), Kana Hanazawa (.hack//Quantum), Yuki Kaji (Attack on Titan), Tomokazu Sugita (Attack on Titan), Junichi Suwabe (Space Dandy), Kenta Miyake (Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn), Kenyu Horiuchi (Bleach, One Piece), Kazuhiro Yamaji (Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children), Kazuya Nakai (Dragon Ball Super) and Ari Ozawa (Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun). The film is directed by Kobun Shizuno (Detective Conan: The Darkest Nightmare) & Hiroyuki Seshita (Knights of Sidonia) from a screenplay by Gen Urobuchi (Kamen Rider Gaim).
The film will hit Japanese theaters May 18th, 2018.

Suuuuuper hype inducing. I really am falling in love with this Mechagodzilla design. I'd be willing to bet this film will set up Mothra, but I doubt we'll see her until the third film, as this film will probably focus mainly on Godzilla and Mechagodzilla's duel. I also know it isn't a practical thing, but I DO hope Mechagodzilla has a roar and I really hope it's amazing. Kiryu's half machine, half Millennium roar was haunting. I want something akin to that for this one.
Cannot wait to see this sequel! Now that we know our characters and get an idea of the plot thanks to the last movie we can just coast down this plot and hopefully get a longer movie. Does anyone have an idea of the length of time for this movie?
I want to know more about the Houtua tribe and the relation they have with Mothra. This is going to be great!
Given that there's a third film in the first place, I have a feeling he's not gonna be taken down.
If this theme of brief victory and hope being dashed soon after continues (I'm told it's pretty common in Urobotcher's works), then expect a twist that sets our heroes back when they think they've won.
I don't think Godzilla will die, personally. I think he's way too far in growth to be killed. I'd imagine even if they replicated what they did with Filius, Godzilla Earth would just Unicron himself back together, ala Transformers: Prime. 20,000 years of adaptation and change had to have made him more resilient. Maybe at best they'll co-exist, but that'd go against earlier canon where Godzilla actively hunts down and destroys everything.
I didn't know that. Is that in the manga? Btw, real shame that the manga has more detail in it than the movie. Wish they made that into the movie instead of what we got. Still a good movie, but such a shame for such a missed opportunity.
At the end of Planet of the Monsters, the Bilusaludo were looking at Filius's corpse that they seemed to notice something that made them gasp and refer to him as a real monster. I wonder their were just staring at the corpse and remarking how hard it was for them to win or if it's something else that may come into play in the next two films?
Or maybe, ultimately, some version of the Oxygen Destroyer could be used in the third film, with the twist being that it kills not only Godzilla, but also kills the humans and aliens, leaving the planet to become a dead wasteland. This is just my idea, but what do you guys think?
You've got a good point. Not even the hint of a teaser trailer, which is really shocking to me. It's almost like they want this to be a Direct-to-DVD sequel like they did with Disney movies back in the early-mid 2000s. But I hope this isn't what they're planning.
