More information on the upcoming PS4 exclusive.
After a long period of silence, Gravity Rush 2 was finally announced exclusively for the PlayStation 4 at the Tokyo Game Show. The game looks absolutely gorgeous, and it looks like it will realize the full potential of the original game, which was charming but ultimately restrained and stunted by the PS Vita hardware.
Sony Computer Entertainment Japan has opened the official Japanese website for the game, which gave us our first details on the game’s story and characters (translation by Gematsu). It appears that the story will be set after the conclusion of the events of the first game, and that it will follow a strange gravity wave disturbance in the aerial city of Hekseville. Naturally, Kat gets involved in this alongside Raven and Syd, and the three are sucked into a gravitational whirlpool before even getting a chance to use their powers.
It sounds pretty cool, and like a much bigger premise in scope than the original game had. I can’t wait to get my own hands on Gravity Rush 2, when it launches in 2016, and see how it all turns out.
