Mastiff today announced a special deal for Gungrave: Overdose. Not only will Gungrave: Overdose ship for a low suggested retail price of $14.99, but anyone who purchases a copy between September 2004 and March 2005 will receive a three-issue trial subscription to Play Magazine (an $18.00 value). In addition to that, they'll get a limited addition Gungrave art card, featuring images from Gungrave: Beyond The Grave anime DVD in every box.
“Gungrave: Overdose is awesome, absolutely over the top" commented Bill Swartz, Head Woof at Mastiff. "We tried to come up with a promotion as good as the game and couldn't. But we've come pretty close. For fifteen dollars PlayStation 2 owners get one of the best Anime-based action titles to hit the system, three issues of a great gaming magazine, a limited edition collector's art card from Geneon Entertainment, publishers of the Anime on DVD, and a preview of the Anime in the game. You can't lose.”
The game features the character design of noted anime artists Yasuhiro Nightow (Trigun) and Kosuke Fujishima (Sakura Wars) and a soundtrack composed by Tsuneo Imahori (Trigun, Hajime No Ippo). Gungrave: Overdose ships in early fall 2004.
