Gravity Rush 2 launches January 18 in Europe, January 19 in Japan, and January 20 in the Americas and UK

Anyone know if the pre-order bonuses (white costume for Kat and PS4 theme) can be purchased separately or are they exclusive to the digital pre-order? I'd prefer a physical copy of the game, but I doubt any stores around here will offer any bonuses.

I'm 99% sure they are pre-order locked.

Meh, that's what I was afraid of. :S  Thanks for the info, Satoshi. I'll try to keep an eye on this if they happen to announce similar pre-order extras for physical copies.

Update: It's delayed until ( EU: January 18th 2017 | US & UK: January 20th 2017)..

Gravity Rush 2 is the conclusion of Kat’s journey, so we want players to have enough time to dive deep into her story. In addition, as a lot of work went into online features that allow for asynchronous player interaction, we want as many people as possible playing the title at the same time. Thus, after careful deliberation, we have decided to change the release date. Gravity Rush 2 will now launch on January 20, 2017.


In exchange for the longer wait, we have decided to release the premium DLC planned for the title free of charge. This additional story will take place in the world of Gravity Rush 2 and we think fans will have a lot of fun playing through it.

Well shit...

 

I don't really understand the reason behind the delay. Are they saying it's because of multiplayer? I didn't even know the game had multiplayer tbh. It sounds to me like it's less about polishing the game, and more about getting as many people as possible playing at the same time.

 

I'm a little disappointed, but it's only a month and bit longer to wait. Throwing in some premium DLC for free is a nice gesture too. I can't be mad.

I would think they did it to improve sales.
Releasing it in the drought of games in January is a much better plan then in December

I mean the delay was just writing on the wall once Final Fantasy XV was delayed and only made things worse with The Last Guardian pushed to the same week.

 

Really wish it was early January but eh, premium DLC for free is an awesome gesture.

this year is full of delays, maybe we should delay 2017 a year and have 2016 Part 2: Electric Boogaloo.

heck yeah, 2016 part 2!

Oh great... 

Seriously, year of delays.

 

Free DLC is nice but screw you Sony and your addiction to multiplayer.

This game does not need MP. If they omitted that, it could have been released :/

It's not cool when one of the first tweets you see is a PS Blog-entry saying that the game is delayed to next year. :/

But like some others I'm quite surprised that the game features a multiplayer (online-only, for sure). oO

This is a good thing. We dont need a similar situation to launch Just Cause 3 and launch DB Xenoverse and other games with MP aspects that are not PvP or Coop. Better for the (already implemented) existent online components to work in a game theyre in than be flawed - avoiding harming the game's overall ratings/design and other player interaction experience(s) - regardless of the high quality SP experience. Especially since this feature will be more prominent, useful, and important than inFAMOUS' 2 online component, polishing this so it actually works, since dedication and effort is going into this feature (and its Kat's implied last game).

And personally I have no issue with MP's existence. Not ALL MP is tied to signing in to play, coop (including campaign coop), or pvp. GR2 doesnt seem to be any of those type of MP so the general and ignorant hate (since noone knows exactly what it is or how it'll work) is unfair. (2 Cent.)

I was okay with a few games being delayed because this Fall was really busy, but dang, now everything is getting delayed! xD

Nuuuuhh! A delay! Oh well, there are too many games coming out soon anyways, so it doesn't bother me that much. I don't mind the free DLC either.
