The European arm of publishing giant Activision has announced that it will be publishing Sega’s latest offering to PlayStation 2 owners, Gungrave, the acclaimed shooter from the Red Entertainment studio.
This interesting move sees Sega’s PlayStation 2 tiles now published by Acclaim, SCEE and now Activision in Europe. Sega is still to make a definite commitment to its future as a publisher in the region, following the setting up of platform agnostic publishing outfits in Japan and the US
Now the moment you’ve all been waiting for, the standard Activision quote that accompanies every announcement. We would like to stress that Kathy Vrabeck, Activision’s executive vice president global publishing and brand management, made this statement after playing Gungrave thoroughly.
“The action in Gungrave is relentless and intense, giving gamers an adrenaline-fuelled roller coaster ride through a set of superbly designed levels. Developer Red Entertainment -- in conjunction with legendary Trigun creator Yasuhiro Nightow -- has produced a masterpiece for the demanding all-action gamer, featuring huge battles, evil bosses and scenery-crunching gameplay. With its DVD-quality cut scenes and frantic combat, the game cannot help but draw players into its dark, stylish, futuristic world.”
Expect to see Gungrave in time for Christmas!
