Hekseville is under reconstructive efforts. Kat, our amnesiac heroine, is asked to to investigate a gravitational anomaly. Suddenly, a portal separates her from Dusty, her cat (with mysterious gravity controlling powers).
Kat arrives in the Durga Parallel, and it's up to her to find her way back home.
Along Kat's journey she will face new foes, uncover new powers, make new friends, and rediscover her forgotten past.
Need a refresher on the story of Gravity Rush 1? Give this a watch! [Heavy Spoilers]
Like the previous game, the story will be told through stylish comic book-like cutscenes.
-The overworld map in Gravity Rush 2 will be roughly 2.5x bigger than the original map in the first game. Players will be exploring the Durga Parallel, as well as the main city of Hekseville.
-City environments are far more detailed in Gravity Rush 2, with more active and denser populations of NPCs roaming the streets.

-There are online elements in Gravity Rush 2. You'll be able to challenge player ghosts in time trials, battles, etc.
-New in Gravity Rush 2, are the Jupiter and Lunar Styles!
-Jupiter Style permits Kat to build up energy in a kick while floating in mid-air, and smashing the ground with tremendous force. When using the Stasis Field ability, Kat can lump together debris and other objects, and hurl them at foes!
-Lunar Style gives Kat incredible movement speed. She can give rapid fire kicks, and instantly warp to targeted enemies. Using the Stasis Field will enable Kat to freeze enemies in place for a quick victory.
