Gravity Rush 2 director Keiichiro Toyama shared new details on the upcoming PlayStation 4 title during an interview with PlayStation France at Paris Games Week last week.

PlayStation 4 Hardware
“We can do a number of new things thanks to the fact that the game is for PlayStation 4. There is still plenty to improve. This is a great platform, so we can develop and make use of incredible techniques.”
New Combat Modes
“The previous title only had Normal mode, which was rather simple and linear. But many players have asked us to add something new. So we added two new modes. But the controls are roughly similar. You will be able to use the same commands, but other actions as well. You will be able to choose how to fight the way you want.”
“As far as a multiplayer mode goes, the gravity actions would be far too limited. So we decided to eliminate that downright. But we’re preparing several gimmicks that connect you with friends in an asynchronous manner. These will be announced later.”
Gravity Rush Remastered
“The remastered version of Gravity Rush will be released in early 2016. The exact date is not yet announced. But it will be before Gravity Rush 2. [Editor’s Note: The date is fixed. It’s February 9 in North America and February 10 in Europe.] It will include the three downloadable contents that were released separately. It will also include the new Gallery Mode, where you will find images of characters and artworks.”
“For now, we don’t expect to make a version of the game for PlayStation VR. But the team has been working on a prototype for virtual reality and it works very well. I’m finding this new platform to be very interesting. You should keep an eye on it.”
Gravity Rush 2 is due out for PlayStation 4 in 2016.
