After the SCE Japan announcement of the Gravity Rush (aka Gravity Daze in Japan) sequel and the Gravity Rush Remastered at the Tokyo Game Show 2015 during their press conference fans have been eager to learn more of what's to come of the heroine Kat.
The amazingly made Gravity Rush 2 official site has put up some new info:
(thankfully translated for us over at Gematsu)
In the aerial city of Hekseville, reconstruction is progressing after the new weapons incident caused by the former mayor D’nelica.
After a strange gravity wave disturbance was observed, the gravity princess Kat begins an investigation with her shifter partner Raven, and Syd, a police officer.
Kat senses something strange and the area is hit by a gravity storm on an unprecedented scale. The three investigators are sucked into a gravitational whirlpool before even getting a chance to use their powers.
A remote, alternate dimension. Kat was engulfed by the gravity storm and finds herself in Banga Village, where people mine gravity ores amongst ruins for a living.
Separated from Dusty, the cat who gives her the power to manipulate gravity, Kat is without special powers, and spends each day doing hard labor in the mines.
One day she heads to work with Syd, who found himself in the same village, and a type of Nevi they’ve never seen before—called a “black insect” in this world—appears. The two are in deep trouble, but then…
A girl who lost her memories. She saves the aerial city Hekseville from a gravity storm attack, and its people endear her as a gravity princess.
A girl who used to be Kat’s rival, but now appears as her partner.
A police officer who resolved a number of incidents with Kat. But he’s also a troublemaker that invites unrest.
Gravity Rush 2
A bright and bustling town where you can feel the vitality of its citizens.
A new dimension of gravitational action.
With your new power, face the threat that stands in your way, and discover the fate that awaits Kat.
There's a bunch of small tidbits, but the good news is we get a new partner, a new place, and a new power all to help fight a new threat. There isn't a whole lot for plot detail, but enough to keep our interest peaked.
I'm actually really curious about the ability to feel the vitality of the citizens. Could that be a hint to what the new power will be? Will we see Dusty again? So many questions to ask while we await the game.
Gravity Rush 2 will be available on PS4 in 2016.
Gravity Rush Remastered will be available in Japan on Dec. 10th, 2015...
...and in the EU and US in Feb 10th, 2016.
