Look, a Kat! ‘Gravity Rush 2’ arrives on PS4 this December

Gravity Rush 2, the follow-up to one of the best PlayStation Vita games (since remastered on PlayStation 4), will be arriving this year. But there’s no “rush” — we’ll have to wait until December to see if physics-bending hero Kat’s latest adventure lives up to its predecessor.

Gravity Rush 2 marks the return of gravity shits Kat and Raven,” says PlayStation associate product marketing manager Brian Dunn. “The first new face to join the expansive world of Gravity Rush 2 is the mysterious guardian angel, who shows up to help Kat when she’s in a bind, quickly dispensing of a group of pesky Nevi enemies.”

The mysterious, slightly rockabilly and gothic setting of the original game was perhaps its largest draw, and it appears that Sony is going all-in on the game’s universe for the sequel. In addition to the game, an anime titled Gravity Rush The Animation ~ Overture ~ (no, we don’t know why they write it that way) will bridge the gap between the first game and its sequel. Even if you played the original on Vita, you might need the refresher: It will be nearly five years by the time Gravity Rush 2 releases.

A trailer, “New Heights,” was also released alongside this news. Shots of Kat’s world tearing in two, as well as the vicious Nevi crawling on the ground, look like they borrow inspiration from the Devil May Cry series, but Kat’s gravity-manipulating attacks are all her own.

Gravity Rush 2 really seems to have benefited from the extra horsepower on the PlayStation 4. Textures and lighting effects now match, instead of hinder, the game’s gorgeous art style, and it all looks incredibly fluid and smooth.

Gravity Rush 2 launches exclusively to PlayStation 4 on December 2. Pre-orders will get you an alternate costume, as well as a nine-song soundtrack. If you want to pre-order digitally, you’ll get 10 bonus PSN avatars instead.
