'Gungrave: Overdose' (PS2) Announced - Screens

Mastiff today announced Gungrave: Overdose for the PlayStation2. Gungrave: Overdose features more of everything that made its predecessor great: more adrenaline, more over-the-top action, more cell-shaded coolness, more outrageous story, more pumped-up volume, and more non-stop gameplay.

Beyond-The-Grave, our favorite undead-Mafioso-turned-almost-good-guy, is back to kick ass against the Corsione family and prevent them from using the Seed to gain control of the world. Joining Grave are two new unlockable characters: Juji Kabane, a blind, foul-mouthed, and perpetually angry swordsman who wears a shabby overcoat and carries a pair of gunblades, and Rocketbilly Redcadillac, a rock star who wears a red riding jacket and sports a slick ducktail.

The game features the character design of noted anime artists Yasuhiro Nightow (Trigun) and Kosuke Fujishima (Sakura Wars) and a soundtrack composed by Tsuneo Imahori (Trigun, Hajime No Ippo).

The designers of Gungrave: Overdose believe in the art of the kill, and to prove it they introduced Artistic Points, earned through elegant and effective destruction. Artistic Points unlock hidden moves and power-ups.

"Gungrave: Overdose blows up real good. It's over-the-top, non-stop action. I'm just worried someone is going to make us slap a 'Warning: Danger of Addiction' label on the box." says Bill Swartz, Head Woof at Mastiff.

Joining Gungrave: Overdose for the PlayStation 2 on retail shelves will be a series of DVDs and soundtracks from the anime TV series published by Geneon Entertainment. Please see for more information.

Gungrave: Overdose ships in early fall 2004.
