Happy resurrection day, gunslingers! Today marks the worldwide release of Gungrave G.O.R.E and now players can experience the gore-tastic world created by Yasuhiro Nightow. In addition to its release today for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and with Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass, we’re delighted to share with you the first reveal of the O.D. Grave Skin which is inspired by previous entries in the series. To learn more about the inclusion of O.D. Grave, I had a chance to sit down with Gungrave G.O.R.E. General Director Kay Kim to talk about the skin, the recently released game, and more. Enjoy!
Why include this original skin?
I believe that many fans will miss character designs from previous versions. That’s why we included skins from the past.
Did you have to change it in any way to make it fit for this style?
Since these are from the past, we didn’t want it to look too fancy, so we kept the old-school vibe. We sticked to the original design and made it look a bit aged purposely.
Was Yasuhiro Nightow involved in the modern day use?
Nightow-san participated in character design.
How did Yasuhiro Nightow react when he saw his creations on the latest gaming tech?
He likes the style of the game, not only the character style. He wanted more various action and gore-ness and I believe those elements are implemented well.
What is your favourite skin in the game, as there are a few like Death Ronin, Classic, and others.
The Brandon Heat skin appeared in the Gungrave series for the first time, and he has his own original motion and original demolition shot. I would say this is more of a character than a skin. For Death Ronin Grave, it will give you a unique vibe since Nakamura-san, who is an artist and a fan of Gungrave, did a reinterpretation of Grave in her way. Classic and O.D. skins bring nostalgia to many. It’s not just about Grave but memories of yourself back then, songs, movies, fashions, etc. that were hot during those days, remind me of those. Now that I said out, all skins look good to me.
As the game releases soon, have you a message for our readers?
Thank you for waiting for a long time. Gungrave G.O.R.E inherited all the pros from its previous versions while adding various system and large volume of numbers which made it the biggest in volume among all Gungrave series. I am hoping you enjoy the game so much we can make the next one in the future. If you want an explosive action game, please play it.
Thank you Kay Kim for taking the time to chat and share the reveal of O.D. Grave! We hope you’re looking forward to playing Gungrave G.O.R.E on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S as well as with Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass today.
