Blueside announced a VR-exclusive cinematic action shooter, Gungrave VR, releasing in Japan in 2017 with improvements on the 2002 PS2 title to go with PSVR.
Gungrave VR is basically an PSVR-optimized version of Gungrave that first released on PlayStation 2 in 2002. It’ll keep the Gunvrave world intact and go beyond the story of the second title, Gungrave: Overdose.
In addition to the infinite shooting, the game’s third-person “Full-Break Action” and first-person “Dynamic Shooting” will be depicted in VR. As for the developers, Iggybom consists of many veterans from the South Korean industry, including numerous members from the original staff.
Original Gunvrave illustrator Yasuhiro Nightow and composer Tsuneo Imahori are involved in the development. The main theme by Imahori-san called “BaraArmati” was made just for Gungrave VR.
