Gravity Rush 2 Online Server Shutdown Delayed

The first Gravity Rush was an action-adventure title of 2012 from Project Siren and Sony Entertainment for PlayStation Vita. Then the sequel Gravity Rush 2 came in 2017, based on a prequel anime of the same series. For some time, Sony has been meaning to shut the Gravity Rush 2’s online servers down which were set for the end of January. Back in September 2017, Sony announced to pull the plug off the servers on January 2018.

Gravity Rush 2 Online Server Shutdown Delayed

However, there's been a change of plan (or heart) now, as Sony Entertainment has most recently notified the players through a pop up announcement that they are not shutting down the online services within the previously marked deadline and in fact, they are extending the period to July 2018. The original date was exactly after one year and a day from the day of the game's release and now six more months been added to that.

Upon closing of these online services, players will not be able to invite each other on challenges or able to collect special contents, costumes and Dusty Tokens. Even without the online features, the story-driven single player mode is engaging enough to keep the players going though. Now, if Sony is withdrawing online support for the game it may also suggest that they will not be interested for a sequel either, much to the dismay of the fans.

A small band of Gravity Rush community was in line to request to Sony with tweets containing #DontForgetGravityRush hashtags to keep the online servers alive and apparently, their request has been honored even if it is for a brief extended time-frame. This of course is a huge achievement for the dedicated PlayStation 4 fan-base of the game and they are thankful for this honor because this shows that SIE Japan Studio actually saw this and cared enough to take this step.

Gravity Rush 2 is a PlayStation 4 exclusive from SIE Japan Studio and Project Siren that is available to play even though the online servers are eventually going down after a few months. Still, that should not a reason for you to stop from enjoying the other aspects of the game. Besides, some of the die-hard fans of the game still believe that the right kind of persuasion can lead Sony to reconsider their decision.

The mad German scientist Doktor Peter Straub is back again after his evil plan was foiled in Bavaria by the combined effort of Drostan Hynd, Jefferson Potts, Marie Fischer and Olivia Durant.

To take his revenge on the Allied Forces, he is preparing a new army of undead soldiers, who will help him change the history.

The developers have entertained the idea of pitting the heroes in an island layered in fog everywhere and you don't often see the zombies coming unless they are only five feet away from you. So, just shooting their head clean off isn't working anymore. You need to take more strategic approach to them with your team while you work on your melee and stealth. Fortunately, your heroes will have access to new tools to help them out and one of them is a powerful Rip Saw.

Below is the brand-new official trailer for OK K.O.! Let's Play Heroes, showcasing brief details of the gameplay and the plot of the adventure K.O. gets into.

K.O. is an aspiring superhero to be and he takes inspiration from his icons he mostly hangs around with. Lord Boxman is a madman who despises K.O. and takes away all the levels from the heroes' pow cards. The trailer shows that. K.O. and his friends will be wandering around inside Lakewood Plaza strip mall as he learns to be a superhero. Scratched from some old concept ideas and character designs, they finally managed to complete the show as they wanted to.

OK K.O.! Let's Play Heroes nicely retains its comical tone just like the animated show and Capybara Games did a fine job at that. Though the original series had a 2D styled animation, the gameplay adaptation may seem like a 2.5D experience because of the side-scrolling nature of it. Plus, the game promises to have much more fun in stock and cut-scenes in between K.O.'s adventure quest.

OK K.O.! Let's Play Heroes is set to launch on January 23, 2018 for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms. So, prepare yourself for one of the finest game made from cartoon show that will let you brawl and collect cards with your favorite fictional characters from the show.

Catherine: Full Body First Trailer

Only days after the announcement for 2011's puzzle platformer adventure title Catherine remake as Catherine: Full Body for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, Atlus and Studio Zero have dropped the first trailer for this upcoming project at a livestream on Nico Nico on December 22. The entire clip is mostly filled with small cutscenes and illustrations from the game and so far, no significant change in the gameplay is noticeable yet.

Catherine: Full Body First Trailer

Now witness the first trailer for Catherine: Full Body is released by Atlus and learn more about the rumor of adding a third "Catherine" to the game this time.

The plot of the game revolves around Vincent Brooks who is already troubling with two enormously gorgeous ladies, Catherine and Katherine. The former came to his life when the latter was already there for five years and complicates Vincent's life by having a one night stand with him. That's not the end of the story. Right after this mishap, he discovers himself in a nightmare realm every time he goes to sleep where he constantly struggles to keep up from dying by climbing puzzled tower blocks.

This is something that anyone who played the original title already knows but what makes this remake more interesting is that it adds more to the pile and that starts with bringing another bombshell into the play. The third "Catherine" of the game is named Rin and she is a pianist at the Stray Sheep bar. Beside that nickname, we don't even know her age and how she will impact on the life of a troubled Vincent.

However, there is a twist nearing the end of the trailer that has been making buzzes and making some fans angry in advance speculation. After Rin and Vincent get to know each other, they end up in a room and she stands nude in front of him. As he looks at her loins, his eyes go wide and jaws drop in what seems like a shock. Whereas many are speculating that the reaction is of finding out that Rin is a trans-woman, Atlus denied to issue any comment on the subject.

Shock or Comedy?

We think if they can handle Rin being trans-woman well, then it would add more fun to the plot but since the studio already ill-treated another trans character named Erica in the same game, players are skeptical. Though there is no official release date yet, Catherine: Full Body will be released on winter 2018 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.

Catherine: Full Body Reveals New Catherine

We already know that 2011's puzzle-platformer Catherine is getting a remake edition titled Catherine: Full Body by developer Atlus for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. This time the game will include more contents, sound and design improvements, competitive multiplayer and several endings to make it even more interesting. What we recently came to know is that there will be a third Catherine alongside other characters of the original title to add more twist to the mix.

We got to know about the inclusion of this new character from the Japanese magazine Weekly Famitsu, who dedicated their most recent issue to the upcoming video game Catherine: Full Body and published some brand-new screenshots and artwork by Shigenori Soejima to fill us in. Katsura Hashino’s Studio Zero is currently handling the development process of the game and they are almost halfway done.

Compared to the already introduced primary characters of Catherine and Katherine McBride, Rin is a complete different person in overall behavior. She is a pianist at the Stray Sheep bar, where Vincent Brooks often visits and spends time. Rin might seem like a sweet, gentle and straightforward girl but at times, you might find her acting silly. Aside from her nickname "Rin", her actual name and age is still undisclosed. The character is voiced by Aya Hirano, who previously played the role of Haruhi Suzumiya and Misa Amane in Death Note.

Regardless to say that, the title “Full Body” indicates that there will be a few sexy events within the game. Then as part of a large chunk of new contents promised by the developers, a few more anime cut scenes and new endings are to be expected. Competitive gameplay is added as an online feature and you can also cross-save the game between your PlayStation 4 and Vita. All of that and then some more erotic excitement since we are talking about a Catherine game.

Catherine: Full Body is announced to release on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita but no official release date is given yet by Atlus. Many of the fans are looking forward to and speculating that the title may also see its release on Nintendo Switch soon after the initial debut on Sony's consoles. More information of the title will be revealed at a livestream on Nico Nico on December 22, 7:30 PM Japan time.

Catherine: Full Body Announced for PlayStation 4

Developer studio Atlus, who are also responsible for the Persona series, made a puzzle adventure platformer back in 2011 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 based on supernatural elements that became quite a hit. We are talking about relationship-drama centric video game Catherine and recently, Atlus have announced to remake the game anew as Catherine: Full Body for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. It will be published by Atlus' Studio Zero Team and new contents would be added to the title.

Catherine: Full Body Announced for PlayStation 4

Catherine: Full Body will bring back Vincent Brooks once again, who is having some commitment issues and is caught up with a beautiful woman named Catherine, while he is already in a relationship with Katherine McBride. Now, Vincent struggles in between day and night when he finds himself trapped in a nightmarish hell that constantly tries to kill him. He has to climb his way up to tower puzzles set in the dream dimension to survive and must choose between Catherine or Katherine.

RELATED: Catherine: Full Body Reveals New Catherine

Instead of choosing "Remastered" or "Remake" to the title, the developers decided to go with the subtitle Full Body because of two reasons. First of all, they are bringing more contents within the original title and it's like a full-bodied wine for the ones who already played the game. So, it only makes sense if you put it that way. Plus, it also sounds more sexually stimulating, meaning they are probably going to add up more X-rated ingredients in the game this time.

Catherine: Full Body will most possibly introduce a third "Catherine" to add some more twist in the mix and make things more twisted for Vincent. The background visuals and sound design has been re-worked to terrify Vincent's nightmare more than it already is. Besides, there will be competitive and cooperative multiplayer modes in Catherine: Full Body. So far, these are reason enough to try out the game this time if you haven't the first time.
