“Fall again… A new project from Team Gravity.”
- Promotional Line from the TGS 2013 trailer.
Gravity Rush 2, known in Japan as Gravity Daze 2, is the sequel to Gravity Rush. The game is developed by SIE Japan Studio and Project Siren and is published by Sony Interactive Entertainment for the PlayStation 4.
On the 20th of September, a project which was known as 'Team Gravity Project' was announced at Tokyo Game Show 2013. It was developed by Team Gravity/Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Studio.
During the TGS Sony Conference in 2015, Sony finally unveiled the game as Gravity Daze 2 alongside the new Gravity Rush Remaster for PS4.
The game released worldwide on January 18-20, 2017 for the PS4.
Most of the gameplay of Gravity Rush 2 is similar to its predecessor. The game expands upon this gameplay with two new gravity shifting styles that increase or decrease gravity's effect on Kat, which goes along with the introduction of fast moving and armored Nevi, as well as a superpowered mode. The game also adds a photograph functionality and online asynchronous multiplayer such as treasure hunts and challenges. There is a new difficulty setting selection, allowing players to make the game slightly harder or easier, and using Gravity Gems unlocks a more diverse moveset for Kat instead of powering up her shifting time or speed.
Like its predecessor, Gravity Rush 2 has received generally positive reviews, with an average score of 80 on Metacritic. However, most major gaming publications scored it higher than this, within the 85-90 range, with Destructoid even giving the game a score of 95.
