Gungrave: G.O.R.E. - Reunion Trailer | PS4

Brandon "Beyond the Grave" Heat returns. Anyone else remember playing the original and Overdose back between 2002-2004? For those that don't know, Gungrave was one of the first games at the time to follow Devil May Cry in the Stylish Action genre. Except Gungrave focused more on 3rd person shooting than melee. The sequel Overdose had a melee character ironically enough. God, it's been years since a proper Gungrave. The VR game had mixed reception, and is a sequel to Overdose. GORE takes place after the VR game. I can't wait to play this in December. I'm gonna have to pop in my PS2 again.

I'm assuming the girl in the trailer is Mika in which case I'm not a huge fan of them turning her into a cutesy, twintailed, martial arts master. Maybe it's explained in the VR game but since I have no intention of ever getting VR I guess I'll never know.

I highly doubt that's Mika. While she can fight, she is not a martial arts master. Plus, she is more of a shooter than a melee specialists. Probably a friend of Mika's most likely; the design is too radically different. The blonde girl looks like a DOA knockoff of Marie Rose. By this point in the timeline, Mika would have to be in her 20s by now. This girl looks like a teenager.

EDIT: I checked a playthrough of Gungrave VR, and Mika looks like she did in Overdose, but slightly older.

Holy nostalgia batman!

I didn't expect another proper GG game after that VR game so I'm very surprised. Not sure who the blond kung fu girl is supposed to be (she's almost reminiscent of an angel a bit) but she's terribly adorable. Also that fight scene is very reminiscent of episode 1 so I appreciate the respect they're showing the series. The gameplay looks almost, I dunno, arcade-ish? But in a good way.

Definitely not enough japanese styled shooters out there. Will prolly day 1 this.

Knew it. The blonde, twin-tailed girl is not Mika. It's a brand new character named Quartz Angel.
