Video Game publisher Mastiff today announced that Gungrave: Overdose for the PlayStation 2 has shipped to retail stores throughout North America. The game will carry a special low suggested retail price of $14.99, along with other exceptional bonuses only available for a limited time.

"Bursting at the seams, (Gungrave: Overdose) has been jacked up eight ways from Sunday with more characters, more levels, and more movies and all that adds up to plenty more heavy metal-infused action," says Ed Lewis, Associate Editor of IGN.com. "It's goofy and insane and it's a hell of a lot of fun."

"Gungrave: Overdose looks and plays great. The anime style cinematics reek with personality," enthuses Dave Halverson, Editor in Chief of Play Magazine.

Anyone who purchases a copy of Gungrave: Overdose between September 2004 and March 2005 will receive a three-issue trial subscription to Play Magazine (an $18.00 value). Add a limited edition Gungrave art card, featuring images from Geneon Entertainment's Gungrave: Beyond The Grave anime DVD packed into every box, and you have one of the most incredible deals ever offered to gamers.

"Gungrave: Overdose kicks a**. Just to make sure everyone knows it we've dropped the price to an absolutely insane $14.99 and put twenty bucks worth of free stuff in every package. You just can't lose," says Bill Swartz, Head Woof at Mastiff.

About Gungrave: Overdose

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. 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).

Beyond-The-Grave, our favorite undead-Mafioso-turned-almost-good-guy, is back to kick a** 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.

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