Nick Accordino's Avatar Posted by on Sep 15, 2015 // Associate Project Manager, SCEA

Good evening, PlayStation fans, I’m thrilled to bring you some breaking news from Japan Studio via Tokyo Game Show 2015!

Gravity Rush Remastered, an upgraded version of the highly acclaimed PlayStation Vita hit, is officially making its way to PS4 on February 9th, 2016.

Brought to life on the big screen by the team at Bluepoint Games, you’ll be able to join heroine Kat and her sidekick Dusty as they soar through the enchanting city of Hekseville like never before. On the graphics side, this release takes advantage of the PS4 hardware to deliver the smooth, vibrant HD visuals of this high-flying adventure.

All three original DLC packs released alongside Gravity Rush’s initial release — the Spy Pack, The Maid Pack, and The Military Pack — will also be included within the game.

Whether you are brand new to the franchise, or want to relive the experience again, Gravity Rush Remastered is the perfect opportunity to experience the magical story of Kat as she seeks answers to her mysterious gravity-defying powers and forgotten past, now in full HD 1080p glory with ample graphical and performance improvements.

Gravity Rush 2 should have been a Ps4/Vita game how could sony just abandon the fans that have stuck by gravity rush since it launched! This is a Sad day for vita owners every where sony didn’t announce 1 in house game for vita during the show!

    Hey GoogleNexus – I appreciate your comment!

    We’re bringing Gravity Rush to a whole new audience with Gravity Rush Remastered, so I hope you’ll check it out when it rolls out next February! I think you’d really love to see how it’s turning out! :)

    Actually I believe they said it is coming to both Ps4 and Vita. Not sure I’ll buy both editions but I will definitely buy the Vita version myself =]

    Nick Accordino’s reply stinks. “We’re bringing Gravity Rush to a whole new audience” I get he has to put a positive spin on it, but still doesn’t address the Vita owners. New audience.. How about the old audience? The fans who supported the first one?
    Buy a ps4 we’ll see you in February..

    3rd party publishers just announced so many new games for the Vita today.

    But Sony just want to give up, even though it was their old fault that the Vita didn’t sell well in the west.


     

    + yosoinbord on September 15th, 2015 at 6:01 am said:

    They basically told you last year that they’re done with Vita. That’s what Legacy Console means.


     

    + OmniCloud on September 15th, 2015 at 12:52 pm said:

    Did you guys see how it looked though? I have a hard time fathoming the game running on Vita anywhere close to that. Unfortunately, the western market for Vita is too small for all of us owners to cry foul play at Sony. Us blog posters and forum visters are a small portion of the market, and overall Vita is just a niche device. if this franchise can reach a larger audience and maybe sell a few million units, that’s a great thing. I do hope Sony isn’t done with handheld gaming, but I’m not going to act like I know anyone with a Vita lol…


     

    + veryhoudini11 on September 16th, 2015 at 12:00 am said:

    Nicely said @Omnicloud. It really is unrealistic for people to expect Sony to waste unnecessary money on the vita. Plus, Gravity Rush 2 is going to be better being a PS4 exclusive because it wont be held back by the limitations of the Vita. I’m looking forward to the new one and replaying the first one on PS4. Hope we find out soon when the new Danganronpa, I’m definitely buying the vita version of that when its released.

    @ DJ_Tomato: It’s a shame you are willing this game just because the PS Vita won’t have it. As someone who studies in video games, the improvements they seem to be bringing for the sequel will be welcomed by both fans and newcomers of the series.

    Please reconsider!! You might not want to miss this.

    p.s. Take into consideration that before Gravity Rush became a PS Vita “launch” title, it was scheduled and in production for PS3. So the game was originally set to be a console game in the first place. As a big fan of Gravity Rush, sure it is sad to not be able to play it on the go as I used to, but I am happy to know that SCE is giving the Ip another chance, despite the Vita game’s sale figures.

    + veryhoudini11 on September 16th, 2015 at 12:09 am said:

    Gravity Rush 2 is going to be so much better on a powerful and capable system. So if you don’t buy it for an unjust stance like that, than that’s your loss.


     

    + jean-pierre789 on September 16th, 2015 at 2:59 pm said:

    Yeah it should have been a Vita and PS4 game or at the very least a PlayStation Trio game but don’t leave the Vita owners hanging. Not everyone can afford an $500 console.

    That’s great Nick, I’m sure they’ve done great work. It’s still a massive shame to leave the Vita in the lurch with a series that it gave birth to. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll happily buy both PS4 titles because I LOVE the series and it’s great to see what it can achieve with PS4 hardware. But I’m not very happy with the way Vita has been cast aside like yesterday’s trash. Doesn’t show much appreciation for those of us who supported Gravity Rush in the beginning.

Do not like that people are giving Nick Accordino a hard time by saying the vita was abandoned, the man was able to get Freedom Wars to the other regions on Vita and probably many other games. I very much appreciate that Gravity Rush is going to a wider audience, a family member who was very interested in my Vita asked me what Gravity Rush was and I just simply told him to play it, now he hangs out here after 4 draining the battery to my Vita because he loves it.

    I have been gaming for ages since my first bootleg of wolfenstien back in 79 a year before it released , Also i own every console and handheld main stream since the Atari 2600 and the vita is the only system i felt that a company just slapped its consumers in the face and never cared one bit and this person deserves all the criticism . Why not just make every game multi platform then because you need them to sell consoles and maybe if Sony hired people who have faith in there own products it could have been just as big as the 3ds as its hands down better in graphics and controls. they dont support nothing after they get there fare share or they just drop it like the PSTV why even make it if you were going to not support it after 2 months of release. sick of excuse making it to reach more gamers LOL ya just like tombraider how they said they made it a 1 year exclusive for the fans it a lie and we know it.

Handheld gaming is a waste of money anyways, these days, you can easily get a cool awesome games for free on your iPhone and/or Android. Imho, handheld gaming is too expensive, sooner or later, it will be replaced with smartphone gaming completely! Same with console gaming of course….
HOWEVER, with the PS Now, i can see the future of playstation become even a much bigger branch than just a console with exclusives, it would probably become like a YouTube Apps but for hardcore gaming!

Gravity Rush 2 being a PS4 exclusive is some major disapointment. Once again game was ripped apart from the hardwere where it feels best. Won’t be buying it unless the price will be very low. Very sad, very very very sad. Even more when trailer of GR2 doesn’t really feel as big improvement over Vita version… models, shadows… it doesn’t look like PS4 game.

But anyway… anyone complaining on Mr. Nick Acordino is meanie!
He is nice guy! And we in EU still want to clone him and hire his clones for eternal work in SCEE.

    “Gravity Rush 2 being a PS4 exclusive is some major disapointment. Once again game was ripped apart from the hardwere where it feels best…”

    You do realize that originally the game was set to be a console game (PS3) before the project shifted to PS Vita. They needed launch titles for it. We are lucky this game was even released for PS Vita in the first place.

    “Won’t be buying it unless the price will be very low. Very sad, very very very sad.”

    Oh come on! That’s the kind of attitude that brought the PS Vita game to fail commercially. Also like some people said, the game’s budget is higher than you would usually get for Portable games (not mobile). Furthermore, a lot of people wanted to play this on PS3! :S

    “Even more when trailer of GR2 doesn’t really feel as big improvement over Vita version… models, shadows… it doesn’t look like PS4 game.”

    That’s completely false. The models for the characters easily seem to be of higher resolution. Even the shaders used are of higher quality. They might tried to recreate the look achieved in the Vita game, just to keep consistency across the two games visual identity/style. Although, there seems to be a problem with the Anti-Aliasing quality, which should be fixable by the time it releases.

    – Also, just in terms models geometry, it looks way more busy and dynamic (way more cars flying around, way more people walking and hanging around) than what the PS Vita could actually handle system-wise (I didn’t see any performance hiccups so far in the trailer).

    – Furthermore, the scale also seems to be five times bigger than the original game’s world, just based of the depth of the levels they showed.


     

    + F4r0_Atak on September 15th, 2015 at 1:11 pm said:

    – Also, the lighting system… based on the fog’s depth, the game could be using PBR, which in return helped improve the quality of the static and dynamic shadows (which look cleaner and sharper) and made the lighting look more “natural”.

    As someone who studies in video game development, these improvements are easily noticeable… especially for eveything they showed so far in the trailer. All in all, as a big fan of the IP, I welcomed all those changes (even the platform switch) as it could help them achieve more with the PS4’s power/specs and push the IP and brand further than what they could possibly wish for. And that’s the most important point in all this… brand recognition.

Punch after punch in the face of Vita owners. Why did House retract the “legacy platform” statement about the Vita? Sony hasn’t announced a first party Vita retail game since Freedom Wars in May 2013.

I really hope there will be something new announce during Paris Games Week or PSX at least.


     

    + F4r0_Atak on September 15th, 2015 at 1:18 pm said:

    Despite having a Vita and being a huge fan of the system and its potential, it was dead in the water for a long time. No matter how much SCE would have invested in it, they didn’t have the CODs and GTAs from the Third Parties to back it up (which helped boost the PSP total sales). Despite having released some really cool games and new IPs (Soul Sacrifice, Freedom Wars, Gravity Rush, etc), the fact that most people and gamers (casual or core) weren’t willing to pay the usual full price for its games (30$ – 50$) slowed its progress to a point that it was no longer profitable to make “AAA” level of games for it.

    p.s. I also wish for more First-party to announced at PGW, but I know it won’t happen. They already said that ALL of their teams are working on PS4 games/projects/apps.


     

    + F4r0_Atak on September 15th, 2015 at 1:20 pm said:

    Also, the mobile gaming on tablets and smartphones is also one of the reasons the PS Vita never turned to a commercial success. Low prices for games, huge libraries, scalable development pipelines, the mobile gaming killed, in some ways, the portable gaming as we used to know it. We can’t do anything for that. :S


     

    + AizawaYuuichi on September 15th, 2015 at 4:27 pm said:

    Legacy platform would imply that they are no longer supporting it. And considering the fact that they’re releasing a new color scheme of the system in the US in November, and just announced a bunch of new skins for the Japanese version as well, they’re obviously supporting it. Maybe not with first-party software, but they ARE still supporting it.

This is such a sad announcement for Vita owners. I just bought my Vita this year and most of its exclusive games that makes Vita known is getting taken away.

I wouldn’t mind if there was a release for both PS4 and the Vita but now this exclusive Vita title is carried over and being made exclusive for the PS4 instead is just the nail in the coffin.

I will have to start selling my Vita since most of the games which I bought the Vita for is going away.

    I am pretty sure the Vita wouldn’t be able to handle Gravity Rush 2 on a technical level without making any sacrifices to the Art Direction or the core level design and game mechanics of the game, hence why it is exclusive to PS4. Imagine the possibilities they could achieved with the PS4 based on what they’ve done on Vita. In terms of scale or dynamic environments, it could change the quality of the endgame/experience for the better, mate. Trust me, this platform switch should and could help with the brand’s recognition with the PS4’s current success. Gravity Rush is really a cool and great game that deserves to be promoted and featured on the PS4.


     

    + F4r0_Atak on September 15th, 2015 at 1:32 pm said:

    Will someone from the PS Blog (or SCE in general) kindly hear this? Promote the hell out of it on PS Store, on your youtube channel, on the blog… release a demo if you need to. This game and the IP needs that kind of exposure. If you want Gravity Rush to be recognized among Playstation’s greatest series/franchise (like LBP, Ratchet and Clank, Sly Cooper, Uncharted, etc), let people “SHARE” their experience with the game. Offer a demo or beta for people who pre-order at their local game shops (Best Buy, Gamestop/Eb Games, Amazon, etc) and let them do the “free” marketing with the things they might share (videos, screenshots).


     

    + CyanKnightNero on September 15th, 2015 at 4:33 pm said:

    Hey F4r0_Atak, while its true PS4 would be able to handle the graphics, it doesn’t mean that the Vita should just be left in the dust like that.

    “I am pretty sure the Vita wouldn’t be able to handle Gravity Rush 2…”

    The game wasn’t even released yet and you already know whether it could handle it or not? That’s what people always talk about the 3DS but Nintendo pushes for their handhelds anyways, see Xenoblade Chronicles, Monster Hunter etc. Those games did great anyways. Trust me mate, it’s not always about the art direction, graphics etc. Mechanics wise, it handled good and really unique for the first game, where is the problem?

    “Gravity Rush is really a cool and great game that deserves to be promoted and featured on the PS4.”

    It deserves to be promoted and featured on the PS Vita as well, especially since it was the original platform it was released in. Going around almost everyone’s posts about how PS4 is the only one that can handle this etc etc. goes to show that you only care about the PS4. Have some consideration as well since you own a Vita. Not everyone owns a PS4 you know.

    Cool to know that the team is targeting for 60fps (most likely for the Remaster but I hope for the sequel too), but if they can’t do it in time for the release, lock it to 30 fps and make the option to “unlock” it available day one. It should grant them enough time, while people play the game, to optimize it to reach a locked 60fps.

The team working on it should be able to do more and push the game’s potential further with it being on PS4 only. Being on PS Vita too would have limited their vision or their ideas just because of the Vita technical limitations.

This was known since last year. GR2 was not going to be on Vita.
I’ve said this for years, Vita is just an indie game console for Sony, and not even the best ones. Just a PS4 additional controller.

Last physical game I bought for Vita was Killzone, and digital Castlevania Symphony of the Night (PSX). It’s bee over a year since I grabbed it, until the other day.

I felt I had a WASTE OF MONEY in my hands, in was painful.

Thanks Sony for not giving a flying F for Vita Owners…

    SCE tried all they can to support the Vita. The main problem was the consumer’s general perception regarding the PS Vita (price of system and its games). People weren’t willing to shell out 250$ – 300$ to get a portable system and another 40-50$ per game when they can get the same thing on a PS3 or another home console for a similar price range.

    Gravity Rush 2 not releasing was a matter of technical limitations with the system.

    Tearaway 2… doesn’t exist. Despite being considered one of the best games on the PS Vita by both the critics and gamers, very few people bought it on Vita, which lead to a commercial failure. Tearaway Unfolded on PS4 was just a way to breath some fresh air in the game’s life and potential. Both games and IPs, Gravity Rush and Tearaway, deserve brand recognition and the exposure the PS4 could offer to them.

    FF Type Zero… it was just Square Enix not giving enough F about a Vita version. They even dropped support for the FF Aegito version they had release a year ago I think, before re-releasing it on mobile. :S

    I am pretty sure if the PS Vita released before the mobile and tablets got hugely popular in gaming, it would have done way better. Altough, the mobile gaming is one of the main reasons it failed commercially. SCE did poor in insane amounts of money in their “AAA” first-party games, altough they barely broke even in most cases.

    SCE’s decisions to drop it before loosing to much money was the best decision they could make. Despite having a wonderful piece of hardware, Third Parties want more than just technical prowess. Inflating budgets for “HD” games didn’t help either, especially since the Vita games were semi-HD in native resolution, which both the amount of content, its performance and its visual quality. Making “HD” games is crazy expensive since you need specialists for certain things… trust me on that.

Making it exclusive to PS4 could help the team in doing more and improving a lot of its core mechanics, level design and pacing. They have the power to make the world of Gravity Rush more living and dynamic, which could change the gamers’ experience for the better. :)
