OMG monsters are invading Singapore 😱!

Please help us… ULTRAMAN...?

In three brand-new episodic shorts which come under the umbrella title “Ultraman: A New Power of Singapore”, our childhood hero comes to save us (and Singapore's precious tourist attractions) from terrifying monsters.

The reason for the release of these flicks: to commemorate the 55th Anniversary of Singapore-Japan Diplomatic Relations (SJ55).

Here’s episode 1, in which Ultraman fights off the kaiju (monster) Red King as it attacks Gardens by the Bay:

Aaand... fight!

Expect to see other famous Singapore landmarks such as Jewel Changi Airport, Sentosa, and Marina Bay. Oh, and it looks like the next battle in episode 2 will be in front of our iconic Merlion.

These shorts are directed by Kiyotaka Taguchi, the main director of "Ultraman Z" (2020) and "Ultraman Orb" (2016) - so you know we’re getting the real deal.

Episode 2 comes out 14 December and episode 3 will be up on 21 December.
