91w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has unveiled the surprising origins of Gravity Rush for PS Vita to fans below today.
To quote: Based on the sheer number of questions we get about Gravity Rush, it's clearly one of the most-anticipated PS Vita games coming along in the next few months.
Featuring stunning, cel-shaded visuals, Vita-tailored controls, and gravity-based gameplay, it's no wonder that reviewers across the Pacific have awarded the game (known as "Gravity Daze" in Japan) high marks.
So when the game's creators dropped into San Francisco last week for Game Developers Conference, I jumped at the chance to speak with them.
In this conversation (shared with IGN's Ryan Clements - look for his story soon at Vita.IGN.com), Game Director Keiichiro Toyama and Art Director Yoshiaki Yamaguchi talk about the game's original platform (not PS Vita!), why they avoided an overly Japanese aesthetic, and the surprising inspiration for its unique gravity-based gameplay.
Ryan Clements, IGN: How did you get started on the project? What are your roots in the industry?
Keiichiro Toyama, Japan Studio: I was studying art as a student. I joined Konami as a graphic artist and become director on Silent Hill, and...

To quote: A lot of you have been wondering about a North American release date for Gravity Rush on PS Vita, which released to great response in Japan on February 9th under the name "Gravity Daze."
Today, we're pleased to confirm that Gravity Rush will come to PS Vita in North America on June 12th, as both a digital release on PlayStation Store and a game card at retailers nationwide.
If you're not yet familiar with this epic action-adventure game, read on for a quick overview. In the world of Gravity Rush, a futuristic world is under attack from unknown forces:
So-called "gravity storms" have begun appearing in the sky, wreaking havoc while strange creatures terrorize the population. Amidst the mayhem, a young girl named Kat wakes up with a phenomenal new ability to control gravity.
Playing as Kat, you set out to stop the world from disintegrating around you, to piece together your lost memories, and to uncover the truth behind it all. There is a huge open world to...
117w ago - Today Associate Product Marketing Manager of Software Marketing Cristian Cardona has outlined everything fans need to know about the upcoming PlayStation Vita title Gravity Rush below!
To quote: Greetings! As you've seen lately, we've released some additional information here and there on Gravity Rush and I wanted to give you all a bit more info on this PS Vita exclusive.
First off, if you haven't already, meet Kat:
You'll be assuming the role of our cel-shaded heroine, who wakes in a strange city with no memory of how she got there. While exploring the town, she encounters a black cat (clever, huh?), who grants her the ability to control the gravity around her.
From there, the story unfolds across multiple chapters as Kat uses her newfound powers to not only help a city that's (literally) breaking apart, but to figure out the mystery of her past and what (or who) has brought her here. Using the PS Vita, you'll be able to release Kat from gravity's hold and shift her center of gravity to completely change her perspective and gain access to previously unseen areas of the stages you play in.
Whether "falling" towards the side of a tower or virtually any visible surface, Kat can be brought back to a floating state with a simple trigger pull, or...
