Gravity Rush 2 is slated to be released on January 20. It was supposed to unveil this December, but the studio revealed that there will be a delay.

Dynamic Experience, Improved Gravity Action

The first style is called Lunar — it increases Kat’s ability to move faster and jump higher. Secondly, the other style called Jupiter intensifies gravity. It gives more impact to Kat’s attacks.
Using the touchpad, players can switch between the two gravity styles according to their liking. Meanwhile, The studio aims to immerse the players in the world of Gravity Rush 2 by redesigning the city and its environment.
