After 59 years of peace, two larger-than-life monsters awaken to settle a chaotic rivalry. Between a gargantuan reptile of unknown origin and a humongous ape with great intelligence, not even a highly specialized fleet of trained soldiers can stop the enormous battle from breaking out. All the while, five lab coworkers have prepared for this moment for a long time. They've constructed a mech suit that is able to withstand and hold back the mighty power of the two alpha creatures. The mech suit, the driver and the coworker's efforts are the only thing standing in the way of New York's ultimate demise. No one is going down without a worthy fight.
