Gungrave is back from the dead, is getting a PS4 VR game this year

Yasuhiro Nightow is back

As soon as Trigun ended, I wanted more. Manga-wise we got Trigun Maximum, and eventually the series was host to a movie, but for a more immediate fix, there was Gungrave

From the mind of Trigun creator Yasuhiro Nightow, Gungrave dealt with a resurrected killer out for revenge, and was host to two video games and an anime. Both titles were met with a sort of mixed reception, but each had their charms — now, the modern world is going to be reintroduced to Gungrave with a PSVR game. Oddly enough this is described as an “optimized” version of the original 2002 ediiton, but will expand the narrative past the second game. Nightow and original composer Ysuneo Imahori are involved, and development is being handled by studio Iggymob.

Well, this is a blast from the past! This is most definitely a “reviews first” situation, but I may go in blind just to see how it worked out.
