The game, heavily inspired by games such as Super Smash Bros. and the PlayStation 2's War of the Monsters, will feature various movie-inspired daikaiju and mechas of their own design. In the roster are various different takes on the tropes within classic kaiju media such as Godzilla vs. BiollanteUltraman, and others.

According to a press release put out by Passion Republic Games for PAX Online East 2021:

GigaBash combines the chaos and creativity of titles like Power Stone, Super Smash Bros, and
War of the Monsters with the jaw-dropping scale of classic kaiju movies. Play as either a
rampaging Titan or a Titan-hunting mecha; summon lightning from the heavens, use a radio tower
as a baton, or roll a whole district (and your enemies) into a single massive snowball. Wreak
enough havoc and you'll evolve into your final form, the terrifyingly titanic S-Class.

Furthermore, "GigaBash will also have a closed-Alpha playtest this 23rd- 26th July 2021. For more information on how to participate, head over to their social media channels to find out more."
