During an interview with Famitsu, Keiichiro Toyama (head of Team Gravity) talked a bit about the development of Gravity Rush 2.

“All I can say [about the game] right now is that we’re working on it with the opinions and expectations of the users who’ve played Gravity Daze in mind.”

Furthermore, it was noted that developing Gravity Daze (the Japanese name of Gravity Rush) after spending years on the Siren games (a horror series) seemed like quite a shift in directions.

“It may look like that from the outside, but the thought process behind Siren and Gravity Daze is actually quite similar: First you create a town, then you create an observing protagonist, then you develop the game having that protagonist get involved with a big incident. The graphics are different, but the building process is the same.”

With this out of the way, he was asked what kind of game he would like to make;

“I’ve worked on horror games for so long, so I accumulate a lot of ideas that would be good in a horror game. So I would like to make another horror game.
So I’d like to take a different approach and make a download-only game. If I could make a download-only game that can be cleared in a few hours, like Journey, and offer an intense horror experience, I’d love to try something like that.”

Here is the teaser trailer for Gravity Rush 2, in case you haven’t seen it yet:

So what would you like to see from Team Gravity after Gravity Rush 2? Another sequel, an all new entry in the Siren series (on Vita) or maybe an all new IP?

Let us know in the comments.

    new ip should be good too.

    This game & coming Tearaway are only 2 exclusive original IP for PsVita. I really like it & hope this sequel will be larger scale and become the face of Vita…

      I just beat this game yesterday and I had no idea that the story would take me on such a mind bending ride. It was a wonderful surprise. I want more people to play this game and make their way through the story. This game deserves to be the face of Vita, and with a sequel hopefully Kat will become even more popular with Sony fans and the world.

      • Yuuki

        indeed it a nice story, want to know more about the world above?
        Still kinda like the idea that kat could be a princess of that world and is trying to escape her world with dreams of this world or so.
        IF i remember right something like this is hinted at.

          Thank you for the link, it was really awesome!

    I really hope we get this game inthe west by the end of ’14. Any later than that would really make me wanna cry.

    After GR2 goes gold, I would like to see something new. No particular genre in mind. Just something that echos the quality and visionary genius of the GR franchise.

    Put horror elements in Gravity Rush/Daze 2! It’d be unexpected and cools, since the dude’s really good at horror. Another new IP Would be nice, as the Vita needs some fresh and unique blood to make people want to buy into it.

  • I think another Gravity Rush would be awesome especially if you can have a coop experience with the second player taking control of Raven 😀

  • Pssh pawh, I just want Gravity Rush 2. Hopefully some kind of large expansions take the upgrade system for example.

  • Andrew

    One thing that has always annoyed me about this game (don’t get me wrong, it’s among my favourite games ever) is that they changed the name for seemingly no reason when they translated it.
    Why did they call it Gravity Rush? Why? What was wrong with Gravity Daze? I played it in Japanese as Gravity Daze. I just don’t see why it was changed. I would love to know the though process behind that one…
