Trigun: The Planet Gunsmoke is an unreleased PlayStation 2 game based on Trigun, developed by Red Entertainment and to be published by Sega. It was first announced by Sega in 2002 during their 2002 GameJam video and quickly cancelled for unknown reasons.[1][2]


All that was released of the game was a 20-second long video trailer which featured no gameplay, only a cinematic. The first scene showed what looks like a steam locomotive against a red sky. The second scene animations of multiple unknown characters in silhouette in front of what looks like a map. Half of the map fades to blue sky where Vash the Stampede is standing with what looks like a full moon behind him. The final scene fades back into the map background and an unknown character with medium-length black hair wearing a black cowboy hat, a western-style grey vest over a long-sleeved white shirt, and a large mechanical left arm. This character throws a punch at the screen with the mechanical fist. The game's title then appears, ending the trailer.




  • Red Entertainment also worked on Gungrave (2002) and Gungrave: Overdose (2004) on the PlayStation 2, a series created by Yasuhiro Nightow.
    • There is speculation that The Planet Gunsmoke may have been reworked into Gungrave, but this has never been confirmed nor denied.[3]
  • The styling of the Trigun name in the game's title closely resembles the version used for Trigun Maximum.
  • The music used in the trailer is a cover of the theme from the 1960 western film The Magnificent Seven. It is most likely "Los Sietes Magníficos" by the Bob Sheridan Orchestra, from a version of the Spanish compilation album Temes Del Cine Del Oeste[4][5], possibly originally released in 1999[6].
