The trailer features a pretty obvious nod to the Shobijin (Mothra twins), new, improved flight mech and a blossoming relationship between Haruo and his old friend. Godzilla also seems to showcase some new abilities while sporting an embered glow, ala, Godzilla vs. Destoroyah (1995) and Shin Godzilla (2016).Take a look:
Like the first film, the theme song titled "The Sky Falls" is by XAI.
The lack of theatrical promotion seems to indicate that City on the Edge of Battle will also see a smaller theatrical release and that Toho intends to put most of its focus on the pending Netflix release.
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.
The first film in the Godzilla anime trilogy, Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters is currently streaming on Netflix.

20 Fan responses to Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle Trailer Finally Released!
I like how the atomic breath has been upgraded once again. It seems that the beam is now able to split up and attack multiple targets at once. I'm also digging the upgraded mechs. Looks like the nanometal will be used on more than just MechaGodzilla.
It's not Mechagodzilla's presence that I'm talking about. In the scene where he's presumably uncovered, he's literally just the head and a skeletal frame; the Houtua tribe seem to have been scrapping his nanometal for a LONG time.
I don't think there's any chance of Mechagodzilla not seeing action in the movie. Toho themselves have stated multiple times that the film will be "the greatest battle between Godzilla and Mechagodzilla ever" and the film's tagline is even "The last hope of mankind <Mechagodzilla> is activated." The trailer is clearly just trying not to spoil any of the fight scenes, aside from that brief shot which may be Godzilla firing his atomic breath at Mechagodzilla.
I also think Mechagodzilla is intact when the characters find him, he's just buried under rubble and metal girders.
The trailer doesn't give a very long look at Mechagodzilla, but he looks to be roughly in the same state as in the teaser poster, where he's just deactivated and buried under rubble and steel girders. All the metal and spikes on his back are definitely still there on the poster, and I didn't see anything in the trailer to suggest he's been stripped down to just a skeletal frame. I just saw metal arches and girders on top of him much like in the poster.
I JUST checked the trailer again. It looks as though we're BOTH kinda right.
The room that they opened up only contained Mechagodzilla's head, unconnected to the rest of the body underneath those girders. However, we see later shots of what looks to be the rest of his body, although it's not quite attached to that disembodied head anymore; it even looks like it's in another room entirely.
It's hard to tell what's attached to what, the shots go by so quickly and in the individual shots I can only see Mechagodzilla's head and back separately. They could still be attached to each other, but the way the trailer is shot never shows them in the same frame.
