Today’s issue of Weekly Famitsu included a spread on Gravity Rush 2, revealing a few new characters that will be included in the game.n.
You can check out the screenshot and artwork at the bottom of the post, while below you can read some more information about them, that was provided to DualShockers by Director Keiichi Toyama during a preview event at Sony Interactive Entertainment’s headquarters in Tokyo.
We get to see Hekseville, that will be revisited in the new game. The city had its share of trouble after the superweapon incident and the vanishing of the government, but it has been making a rapid recovery thanks to the defense system created by Dr. Brahman and to the efforts of the angels.
The first character showcased in the screenshots is Karyi Angel, who actually was already revealed a few weeks ago. She is a superheroine with an aggressive and wild fighting style and overwhelming power.
The second character is actually new, named Durga Angel, she can fly freely thanks to her large crystal wings.
Dr. Brahaman is an brilliant scientist who became the savior of Hekseville after a long period of chaos and confusion. Even thanks to his daughter Karyi Angel he enjoys strong support from the citizens.
We also get a glimpse on the rebels threatening the city, named the Delta Team. Delta 1 has flying and fighting skills that make her equal to gravity shifters. Delta 2 is equipped with reinforced armor and weapons for tactical support.
Besides the characters, the screenshots introduce the mining mode included with the game. By passing through a gravity storm you can visit mining sites where you can collect gems and talismans.
The actions of other users playing online, new entrances to new trench mines might appear. There is even an asynchronous multiplayer element in these trench mines. You’ll find the remains of those who have died there, and you might find their items, which could be useful to you.
In addition to using precious gems to power up, you can equip talismans that will apply modifiers to Kat’s abilities. Some might boost attack power of health, while others have special effects like improving your chance to find gems or decreasing the chance of dropping items you grabbed. Equipping suitable talismans for the mission you’re on can be a huge help.
Talismans are found randomly while mining, or can be earned as rewards for various missions.
