Mastiff Games today announced what it is calling the "Can't Lose" deal for its upcoming title Gungrave: Overdose. The game will retail for the low price of $14.99 and will include about $20 worth of free goodies, Mastiff says.
The over-the-top action shooter is slated to ship this month, and anyone who purchases the game before March 2005 will receive a three-issue trial subscription to the monthly multiformat game magazine Play. In addition, a limited edition collectible card featuring artwork from the Gungrave anime, currently being released on DVD in the US by Geneon Entertainment, will be included inside the game's package.
Overdose is the follow-up to 2002's Gungrave, which was developed by Red Entertainment and published in the US by Sega. The game features character designs by two noted anime artists--Yasuhiro Nightow (Trigun) and Kosuke Fujishima (Sakura Wars). Trigun music composer Tsuneo Imahori has also lent his talents to Overdose's original soundtrack.
