New Gravity Rush Anime Bridges Original And Upcoming Sequel


Two parts of a short anime titled Gravity Rush: Overture (The Animation) have just debuted on PlayStation’s official YouTube channel, giving players a chance to see what happened in between the original game and the upcoming sequel, which is slated to launch exclusively for PS4 on January 20. With each part clocking in at just under 10 minutes, the mini-episodes are a great, quick watch for both fans looking to get their Gravity Rush fix in between games as well as curious PS4 owners who think they might be interested in the series.

The original Gravity Rush was one of the Vita’s flagship first party titles back in 2012, offering a truly unique gameplay experience — based on shifting gravity — to help protagonist Kat solve puzzles, traverse the world and combat monsters. The Vita’s gyroscope was the main method of control, making for a truly dizzying and mind-bending play style. Unfortunately, the relative lack of success that Sony’s second gaming handheld saw meant that not many people got to play the original.

Thankfully, 2016 saw Kat get another opportunity in the spotlight with Gravity Rush Remastered on PS4, and the game is a fantastic HD re-release. With Gravity Rush 2 being built from the ground up for Sony’s popular console, which has now sold more than 50 million units, the install base is now high enough to get some serious eyes on both the remastered original and its sequel — so perhaps Kat will get her time in the spotlight after all.
