The lights are on
Today at the Tokyo Game Show 2013 in Tokyo, Japan, Sony teased a new Gravity Rush game. The original Gravity Rush (called Gravity Daze in Japan) released on the PlayStation Vita last year and received generally favorable reviews. The brief, beautiful trailer shows protagonist Kat flying through the air only the way a shifter can.
The first Gravity Rush was developed by SCE Japan Studio (Ape Escape, Puppeteer), but this teaser says Team Gravity is working on the new project. Team Gravity could be SCE Japan Studio's name for its specific group of developers working on the Gravity Rush series.
Our Take:Gravity Rush is one of the Vita's strongest titles. It would a smart move for Sony to continue building on the solid foundation of this original IP. However, we can't be too certain this game is only destined for Vita. The visuals in the teaser look similar to the original's, but we could be looking at a Gravity Rush game developed for one of Sony's other systems. Whatever hardware it releases for, we're happy to see Sony get behind such a gorgeous, unique game.

Sweet!I love gravity rush.A classic game game that is hard to miss.
This series looks awesome, I would love to see a PS3 version.
HOLY CRAP!!! THIS HAS TO BE A SEQUEL!!!!!!! PLEASE LET IT BE TRUE PLEASE LET IT BE TRUE!!!!
OH, CRAP!!! I HAVE TO KNOW MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I really enjoyed playing the first game. Great music, setting, and characters. The gameplay definitely took some practice, but after completing the story I had a great time finishing up all the challenges to get that Platty! Often, I will give up chasing a Platinum if the game is obviously making me just grind through repetitive tasks, but Gravity Rush made every side quest a joy in extending that super-powered feeling that I haven't had in any other game.
Of course, a sequel is welcomed. Cross-play would be A-mAz-ing!
Very cool. GR was a great game. I would love to see a sequel.
Called it right after i beat the game so glad I was right.
I enjoyed the first Gravity Rush. It was repetitive and got boring about halfway through, but it wasn't bad - especially for a free PS+ download. Japan Studio outdid themselves with Puppeteer though. If GR2 can be as fun as Puppeteer with their Gravity Rush touch, I'll be all over this
