Game description: Delve into this action-packed sequel to Gungrave. This time, you can choose to play as the wrathful swordsman Juju Kabane, the rock star Rocketbilly Redcadillac, or the undead hero Beyond the Grave. Each character has a different set of attacks and high-powered weapons. With your arsenal of weapons and moves, you'll fight your way through nine stages of challenging enemies. Kill with elegance to gain points and unlock hidden movies.
Two years after the original, Gungrave, and just approaching of that game's anime spinoff, Gungrave: Overdose was released. Preserving Yasuhiro Nightow's flair and artistic style, this outing adds new playable characters to the series and a new story, in which Grave resumes his tale as an unlikely anti-hero tracking down the sadistic son of a Mafia boss who has struck a deal with a symbiotic seed bent on taking over the Earth.
