Gravity Rush 2 is due out on our shores on January 20, 2017, but game director Keiichiro Toyama already has some idea where SIE Japan Studio will be heading in the future. When it comes to another Gravity Rush sequel Toyama told Famitsu (article via Hachima Kikou, translation via Gematsu) that he needed some new way to express the game before going in that direction.
"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," said Toyama.
Since a Gravity Rush 3 isn't in the immediate future, what is SIE Japan Studio going to be doing? According to Toyama, something brand new.
"Since the team is in good condition, I want to continue to use the 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," he explained.
USgamer's Jaz Rignall has already reviewed Gravity Rush 2 for PlayStation 4 and called the game "a real treat for the eyes, ears, and reflexes".
"Gravity Rush 2 has been a huge surprise to me. I had very little knowledge of the game going into it, and the experience of playing it has been a real joy," wrote Jaz. "As well as packing a brilliant story and top-tier gameplay, the game's art direction is fabulous."
Gravity Rush 2 is coming to PlayStation 4 on January 20, 2017.
