Iggymob is currently working on Gungrave G.O.R.E., the newest entry in the action-oriented third-person Japanese shooter. The upcoming title is currently being developed using the Unreal Engine 4, and will be a much bigger and far more expansive game than the recently released Gungrave VR, which is currently available for the PlayStation 4 on the PlayStation Store… in Japan.
Siliconera is reporting that business director Kay Kim explained in an interview to Famitsu that Gungrave VR was just the first step in what they have planned for the series, and that the new game on the PS4 will be bigger, badder and more expansive than anything done with the Gungrave franchise in the past…
“The curtain will open on the rebirth of Gungrave starting with Gungrave VR, and continue towards G.O.R.E. The overall scale is difficult to convey at this point. But for G.O.R.E., we want to deliver on a greater scale and level of quality than Gungrave VR, so we are developing on the latest Unreal Engine. We are aiming for a scale that compares favorably to higher level games, but I think that the most important thing is, ‘How can we create a title that receives the consent and sympathy of existing fans?’ I want to make more and more effort, and pursue the understanding and expression of the Gungrave setting”
We don’t get any details about the actual story, other than that Gungrave VR will work as a prequel to Gungrave G.O.R.E., so if you want to get caught up on the events of the series, it’s probably best to check that one out first for the PlayStation VR. Of course, since a lot of people recognize how awful VR is these days, it might be best to suffice with watching some videos on YouTube or walkthroughs streamed from Twitch to get an idea about the story and content if you feel you need to get caught up before Gungrave G.O.R.E releases.
If you haven’t seen the VR title, it actually doesn’t look that bad. It’s a mix of gun-kata and bullet-hell arcade gameplay.
On the upside, at least the game features actual modeled hands and arms and not the awful disembodied hands or floating guns like in some other shooters.
You can look for Gungrave VR to launch at some point in the West in 2018 for the PlayStation VR on PS4.
There’s no release date yet set for Gungrave G.O.R.E., but it will be coming to the PS4 first in Japan.
