Gravity Rush pulls toward February in Japan

Adventure game from former Silent Hill and Siren director to contain bonus booklet.

by

Siren and former Silent Hill director Keiichiro Toyama has been busy as of late developing the upcoming adventure title Gravity Rush (or Gravity Daze in Japan) for the portable PlayStation Vita console. Gamers can now set a date aside for the game, as it was recently announced that it will be out for the upcoming console on February 9 in Japan.

Gamers can start twisting gravity next February.

According to the game's website, the Vita title will sell for 5,980 yen ($77.76) on retail shelves and 4,900 yen ($63.71) for download from the PlayStation Network store. Japanese gamers who pick up a physical copy will also get a bonus booklet that features the game's concept art and a mini comic book.

Gravity Rush is about a girl named Katt who can manipulate the gravity field around her area for reasons found through the storyline set in the town of Hexaville. The game itself showcases the Vita's control scheme, which includes touch-screen options and gyrometer manipulation. A North American and European release date has yet to be confirmed.

Keiichiro Toyama is a genius.

Too expensive for a "who-knows-what" game...

@dxdevilex0 I think Japanese game prices are generally higher than ours, by our prices. It will likely only be around 40 dollars here, or 50 maximum.

I was going to download Gravity Rush as my first game for the Vita right beside Uncharted: Golden Abyss but if this game doesn't make it to the launch game, I guest Uncharted will half to do for now. I'm going to Download all my games on the Vita for now on and it looks like it will be cheaper to do.

This game looks amazing. I'm hearing it's going to be a Vita launch title in the US. It's not often that you get to see a AAA original IP on launch day, but it seems the Vita's going to be the exception.

This seems pretty promising for the new handheld. Let's hope it breaks the streak of mediocre games for new consoles and handhelds.
