MegaTokyo[2][3] is a city in Japan and the location of three major Kaiju attacks in 2035.[1]

History

Pacific Rim: Uprising

The city of MegaTokyo is besieged by three Kaiju, Shrikethorn, Raijin, and Hakuja, who emerged from several artificially-created breaches facilitated by hybrid Jaegers. The Mark-6 Jaegers Gipsy Avenger and Guardian Bravo, Mark-7 Saber Athena, and Mark-5 Bracer Phoenix are deployed to fight them.

They immediately engage against each other, wrecking much of the city as a result. For a time, the Jaegers hold their own and start to win against the Kaiju. However, when Newton Geiszler released the Rippers to fuse their bodies together to create the "Mega-Kaiju", the Kaiju gained the upper hand.

The Mega-Kaiju, towering above the city, reengaged the Jaegers and bested them, destroying much of the city during the battle. Following the battle, where Gipsy Avenger was the only Jaeger left standing, the Mega-Kaiju left the city and headed towards Mount Fuji to kill itself and trigger the Ring of Fire.

Notes

  1. 'EMPIRE Magazine: "[...]The final third-act battle in Megatokyo will see them communicating with each other, calling out for help. For their humming opponents, this creates even more jeopardy."
  2. Tracking Board: "It seemed like you did a lot more location filming on this movie rather than building most of it. I remember that Guillermo built a huge section of Hong Kong for the first movie."
    Steven S. DeKnight: "Yeah, and again it was not wanting to exactly repeat the visual language of the first movie, but also, it was a product of time and budget. We were in a real preproduction crunch because of release date and actors’ schedules. I had about half the time that you usually have to prep a movie like this, so I had to choose it very, very carefully what I was going to build, and what I would just shoot on location. For example, I would’ve loved to have had built part of MegaTokyo for the finale, but there just wasn’t enough time, so we went for an augmented location–locations augmented with CGI."
