Dave the Diver’s Godzilla DLC will only be around for a limited time

Dave the Diver, the weird and wonderful fishing and restaurant management game from 2023, has new Godzilla downloadable content out today: Godzilla is invading the Blue Hole. Yes, the kaiju Godzilla, all teeth and fire. It’s a free DLC pack for people that already own Dave the Diver on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, or Windows PC via Steam. The only catch is that you’re only able to download it until Nov. 23 — a six month period.

Why? That’s not entirely clear, but my best guess is that it’s due to the licensing of the big monster. (We’ve reached out to developer Mintrocket for clarification.) But as long as you download it before then, you’re good.

The Godzilla DLC brings both Godzilla and a big lobster Kaiju to Dave the Diver. You’ll at least fight Ebirah in a submarine-based battle. And yes, Godzilla and Ebirah will fight. It looks to be a short, but engaged addition much like the Dredge crossover content that was released in December last year. (Dredge, like Dave the Diver, is a fishing game from 2023, but with a grotesque, spooky spin. The Dredge DLC in Dave the Diver added a bunch of Dredge’s weird fish.) Beyond the lobster battle, you’ll also be able to find monster figures hidden throughout the Blue Hole.

If you haven’t already tried Dave the Diver, you should. It’s so much more than just a fishing game and restaurant management sim: The deeper you go, the larger the secrets. Last year, it earned the 12th spot on our games of the year list.

Correction: This story originally called Ebirah an original kaiju, when it’s actually part of the Godzilla universe. We’ve updated this story to reflect that information.
