Gravity Rush Remastered Hits PS4 Today with Original Soundtrack

Nicolo Accordino's Avatar Posted by on Feb 02, 2016 // Producer, ISD

Hello again, Gravity Rush fans! The wait is finally over — Gravity Rush Remastered launches today on PS4! Grab the digital version on PlayStation Store or a physical copy from Amazon.

In addition, for the first time in franchise history, we’re releasing the Gravity Rush soundtrack today on PlayStation Store! The Gravity Rush Remastered Original Soundtrack on PS4 contains all 47 tracks from the original game (total running time 1 hour and 49 minutes) beautifully crafted by legendary composer Kohei Tanaka.

Fans will also be able to view a unique slideshow of game visuals as they listen to the score in both stereo and surround sound formats. The ability to export all tracks as stereo MP3s (via a compatible USB device) is included.

The soundtrack is available starting today as a standalone product for $11.99.

To commemorate today’s launch, we received a special message from the game’s director, Toyama-san:

I’m so excited that fans around the world will finally be able to experience Kat’s adventures on the big screen!

When I was young I was raised on a variety of games, comics, and animation. Gravity Rush Remastered is filled to the brim with that old fashioned flair that Japanese entertainment is known for.

So just like me when I was younger rummaging through comics, I hope you enjoy diving completely into this mysterious world!

Thank you for supporting Gravity Rush Remastered!

On behalf of all of us involved with the Gravity Rush series, thank you very much for all of your patience, kind messages, and support for Gravity Rush Remastered. We hope you enjoy Kat’s adventures in Hekseville on PS4, and we sincerely look forward to sharing more about the Gravity Rush franchise soon.

The Gravity Rush soundtrack is my favorite soundtrack of all time. The songs Old Town, Resistance and Extermination, and Pleasure Quarter are real highlights. I’m getting the remastered version mainly because of the soundtrack. It is just mesmerizing. People owe it to themselves to hear that soundtrack.

I find it ridiculous that Canadian amazon has No stock of this, and I’ve been watching the page everyday for a while. I had to order from the US amazon and gotta wait until next week for the physical. I did buy the digital just to play until then but I find that extremely annoying.

I’m sorry to change the tone of the comments so far, but to not say a word would imply everything’s fine in the World. And trust me, it’s not. I’m one of the many people who supported this franchise day one when the game came out on the Playstation Vita, I was never opposed to seeing the game ported (though I’m not naive enough to think a bigger install base equals a bigger attach rate) but it seems highly contradictory of Toyama-san to say: “I’m so excited that fans around the world will finally be able to experience Kat’s adventures on the big screen!” when in doing so, you are deliberately excluding the install base that supported your franchise in the first place. Yes, taking the game to PS4 is fine. Leaving the PSV out is not. We supported your new IP, you simply cut us off and gave us nothing in return~.

We are left with an inconclusive story, a first entry into a series that was filled to the brim with questions and virtually no answers. So, not everything is peachy, at the end of the day you people still excluded the many thousands that actually supported you and gave voice to an IP nobody ever heard about~.

    I actually prefer that they release the new title on ps4.id rather be playing it on my big screen with better graphics, frame rate, ect than on my vita. Many of us vita owners also own a ps4. Youre arguments dont hold any value. You could say the same about uncharted 4 coming to the ps4 instead of the ps3. The ps4 hardware will allow the franchise to better itself in so many ways that the vita couldn’t allow.

    So with that statement does that mean this game does not have Cross-Save support? Because i have this on Vita not played it in a couple years but i just have a clean up and thinking of picking up the PS4 version but i don’t want to start it again.

    Hey Hakumen,

    Currently it’s only planned for PS4, but the PS4 version allows you to export mp3s, so you could take those and stick them on your VITA if you like!

    Hope that answers your question!

I love this game, but this “accolades” trailer is a bit too insincere for my liking. Calling the game “unmissable” when it’s been out since 2012 and missed by millions of people… Where was this mindset when it originally came out on Vita? Why weren’t you championing the game back then?

I’m honestly kind of disappointed by how enthusiastic everyone at PlayStation is for the game and it’s sequel all of a sudden, yet when it came out on Vita none of you were talking about as this great game that everyone needs to play.

That said, I’ll happily enjoy the game and it’s sequel on PS4. I just hope my sentiments are heard by everyone involved with the Gravity Rush series from here on out. Not even a nod to the Vita faithful who supported the game in the first place (cross-save, cross-buy… anything…) and yet you keep talking about Gravity Rush fans when referring to people who can’t possibly be fans of it because they haven’t yet played it.

Kohei Tanaka truly is a legendary composer, though I imagine many haven’t heard too much of his work. His work on Sakura Taisen (Sakura Wars in the west) is outstanding and it’s almost hard to fathom that a single composer could write so many different styles of music so well.

While I don’t think the Gravity Rush OST quite compares to Sakura Taisen’s music, that’s like saying gold isn’t as worth as much as platinum (as in it’s still an amazing OST).

I was really looking forward to the physical release of Gravity Rush Remastered in North America, but Sony couldn’t be bothered to release it here in Canada, yet, everywhere else gets it…
It’s really unbelievable and I’m extremely disappointed. Sony didn’t think it worthwhile to release a physical copy here, so I don’t find it worthwhile to support their actions. I will not be purchasing the game digital.
I know Sony doesn’t give a damn but I felt like leaving this comment anyway.

I loved this game on my Vita and devoured it and the DLC voraciously. I picked up Remastered on day one and was SO DISAPPOINTED to find that the game disables Media Player and forces the player to listen to the in-game soundtrack or silence. My experience with Gravity Rush is very much married to the music I listened to while I played it, and I was looking forward to recreating that in my living room again, along with a few new albums that have released recently.

You took something away from the experience for me, something that had been vital the first time and now feels hollow and uninspiring. I know the music is beloved by many, but it feels wrong to me and I have no option to change that, as I have had with nearly every other title I can think of in the last decade or so.

Would very much appreciate a patch in the near future to allow this feature back in. Thanks for thinking about it.

Bluepoint nailed it again. Excellent port, they should do all of Sony’s port work. I’m sure they cost more than the no-names Sony hires sometimes, but they are worth it. Games deserve proper treatment when ported.

Got the platinum again on PS4 within the first few days of starting it again, such a good game. Can’t wait for GR2.
