Plus, news of an anime tie-in from the team behind Rebuild of Evangelion
Hello, PlayStation fans! Gravity Rush 2 stunned E3 visitors with an action-packed hands-on demo featuring a glimpse of the game’s massive, intricately-detailed environments, and expanded gravity-defying action.
Today I’m excited to announce that Gravity Rush 2 will be dropping (no pun intended) this year on 30th November 2016 for Europe and 2nd December for the UK.
Those who pre-order the game from participating retailers will receive an alternate white costume DLC for Kat, as well as a Director’s Choice Soundtrack from the game. If you pre-order from the PlayStation Store you will receive both of these pre-order items along with a PS4 Theme.
I’m also happy to announce that prior to the launch of Gravity Rush 2, we will be releasing a brand new anime called “Gravity Rush: The Animation ~ Overture ~” which bridges the gap between the original Gravity Rush and the sequel. This anime is being produced by Studio Khara, best known for their work on Rebuild of Evangelion. We’ll have more to share about it prior to launch.
Gravity Rush 2 marks the return of gravity shifters Kat and Raven (now a powerful ally), ex-cop Syd, and introduces a bevy of new characters. The first new face to join the expansive world of Gravity Rush 2 is a mysterious guardian angel who shows up to help Kat when she’s in a bind, quickly dispensing of a group of pesky Nevi enemies.
Angel is a superheroine with an aggressive and wild fighting style, and packs an overwhelming punch to her attacks. She also has a crystallisation ability that helps her regenerate health instantly. Check out Angel’s abilities in this new gameplay trailer.
