Gravity Rush 2 flying launch

Here is the list of this week’s new video game releases. Popular video games released this week are: Gravity Rush 2, Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King, and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Mega Battle.

I’m SO happy that Gravity Rush 2 is a reality and gives the story a solid conclusion after almost five years of waiting after the original PS Vita release. Kudos to Sony for making this happen, they even put out a free Gravity Rush anime short that bridges the two games, and the sequel’s DLC is free too! 😀

  • Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea (PS Vita)
  • Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King (3DS)
  • Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star (PS4, PS Vita)
  • Gravity Rush 2 (PS4)
  • Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Mega Battle – Download Code Card (PS4, Xbox One)
