Video: Gravity Rush Launches Today on PS Vita, Inside DLC Scoop

96w ago - Game Director Keiichiro Toyama has announced alongside a video trailer that Gravity Rush launches today on PS Vita with the inside DLC scoop below!

To quote: To help celebrate today's U.S. launch of Gravity Rush for PlayStation Vita, I'm excited to share this new trailer which will give you a taste of what the game has in store for you.

Gravity Rush was based on the inspiration I received from the artwork I saw in a magazine when I was a teenager. When I joined the industry, I thought that someday I would want to create a game with a world setting as vivid as that piece of art.

It's been awhile since Japanese videogames have carried the clout that they used to in our industry. When I began my career, I was striving to find a way to break through.

I thought about making a game based on the top global marketing strategies, major genres that were popular at that time, and even based on a character that would be widely accepted in the Western market. However, none of those concepts produced the results I desired, which is when I realized I was trying to put the cart in front of the horse.





After that, my ideas began to gain more momentum. The Gravity Rush project started with the simple...

Video: The Art of Gravity Rush for PlayStation Vita

102w ago - Gravity Rush Art Director Yoshiaki Yamaguchi has shared a video concept movie today spotlighting the art of Gravity Rush for the PlayStation Vita handheld console below.

To quote: With Gravity Rush releasing on June 12th, I wanted to share how the artwork of this game came together as well as how the style of "Bande Dessinee" influenced the title's art direction.

Gravity Rush incorporates the theme of Bande Dessinee (BD), a popular Franco-Belgian comic book art style.

There are various types of BD style and they can be perceived in many ways. We first approached an element of BD we thought would fit well into the pre-existing game art.

One of the differences between realistic expression and schematic expression represented by BD is that BD exaggerates the information that author wants to convey to the audience. By doing so, it conveys more of the accurate information that the author wants to be recognized.

While considering the gravity mechanic in the game, we brainstormed with these elements in mind. If a player can move around freely, the level should not only be big horizontally, but also vertically. Therefore, we designed the city with multiple levels of layers and structures.

Additionally, the line drawing method was used to exaggerate...
