Some tidbits from the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu.

Gravity Rush 2

The latest issue of Weekly Famitsu has an interview with Gravity Rush 2 director Keiichiro Toyama, who talks a bit about Gravity Rush 2, the future of the series, and what’s next for his team.

Get the tidbits below.

Will there be a day-one patch?

Toyama: “While I don’t think a patch will be necessary, we won’t know about the online yet until we try it out.”

Regarding ‘The Ark of Time – Raven’s Choice’ DLC…

“It will depict what happens to ark left over at the end of the previous game and the children. At first we wanted to put it in the main story, but we decided to cut it since those who didn’t play the previous game wouldn’t understand it. Taking your time playing it will take about five hours.”

Regarding the future of Gravity Rush

“It’s still a blank slate, but I feel like I’ve put my all into it this time, so if I make a sequel, I want it to be something new. For example, if there was new hardware that allows for a new way to express things, then I may want to make it.”

What are the plans for the next title from the Gravity Rush team?

“Since the team is in good condition, I want to continue to use their merits for a new title. I haven’t thought about the new title at all yet, but I don’t think it will be significantly different from the direction I’ve taken so far. I think it will be of the action adventure genre.”

Gravity Rush 2 is due out PlayStation 4 on January 18 in Europe, January 19 in Japan, and January 20 in the Americas and United Kingdom. A demo is available now worldwide.
