Gungrave VR

Gungrave VR will launch for PlayStation VR in Japan on December 14, a new Japanese PlayStation VR lineup trailer reveals.

Here’s an overview of the game, via its initial announcement:

Gungrave VR is a new title developed by optimizing the Gungrave released for PS2 in 2002 for PlayStation VR. The worldview of Gungrave will remain unchanged, and it is being developed with a story that goes beyond the sequel Gungrave: Overdose.

The game’s infinite shooting, object destruction, and “full break action” are being optimized for virtual reality. It will incorporate both the third-person perspective through the aforementioned full break action and first-person perspective through “dynamic shooting.” It promises to inherit the series’ legacy, with members of the original title’s development team joining in on development.

In addition to PlayStation VR, Gungrave VR will also be released for other virtual reality devices, including Oculus and Vive, at a later date.

A western release of Gungrave VR is also planned. The game will be playable at PlayStation Experience 2017, which runs from December 9 to 10.
