Again at E3, Koch Media’s new Prime Matter label introduced the PS2-era motion collection Gungrave could be making a shock return. The primary teaser trailer for Gungrave GORE delivered the blood and angle, however didn’t supply any actual gameplay – fortunately, that’s now modified. Prime Matter has dropped a primary gameplay trailer Gungrave GORE, which is each bit as quick, frantic, and over-the-top as you would possibly hope. Test it out for your self, under.
It’s additionally been revealed that Gungrave GORE will characteristic character designs from Ikumi Nakamura, who most lately acted as inventive director for Ghostwire: Tokyo (and have become a little bit of a meme following her enthusiastic look at E3 2019). Nakamura left Ghostwire: Tokyo partway via manufacturing and began her personal impartial studio, and it appears Gungrave GORE is her first main post-Ghostwire venture. Nakamura had the following to say about the new venture in a PlayStation Blog interview…
I used to play the PlayStation 2 model of Gungrave. Since I used to be a fan of Naito-sensei’s Trigun, I naturally thought “I’ll purchase Gungrave”. When Iggymob contacted me, I used to be glad to listen to that it was a suggestion to work on a bit that I had as soon as bought. It was an honor to work with Naito-sensei not directly. They instructed me that they knew how they wish to strategy the visible side, however the core visible idea and its impression was not fairly there.
The truth that I might refine the visible idea was probably the most attention-grabbing half when engaged on Gungrave G.O.R.E. When it comes to the precise work course of, I had to think about easy methods to remodel and produce Naito-sensei’s characters to life. This was each an interesting and difficult a part of the venture. Sustaining the primary worldview of GORE and including the “Ikumi-nized” type was probably the most difficult of all. I used to assume “Wow, what am I going to do?” due to the strain that I felt, however nonetheless moved on with the visualization.
Talking of issues being Ikumi-nized, I’d say this new character from the trailer bears a little bit of a resemblance, however possibly it’s simply me.
Gungrave GORE is coming to PC, Xbox One, Xbox Sequence X/S, PS4, and PS5 someday in 2022.
