History

Gravity Rush started off back in 2008 as a PlayStation 3 project called Gravité before being transferred to the PlayStation Vita. Directed by Keiichiro Toyama, previously known for creating the survival horror series Silent Hill and Siren, the core mechanic of the game is the player's ability to manipulate gravity to facilitate their navigation of the levels in the game. The graphics are cel-shaded, which in Toyama's opinion stand out from the western photo-realistic trend. Voice acting is limited, and the characters speak in a language heavily influenced by French.[2]

Uraraka’s Quirk makes objects and people weightless, hence the name of her Quirk: “Zero Gravity” and only by touching them, and has limits including a maximum weight of 3 tons and can’t lift herself or she’ll feel nauseas and throw up.
Kat’s powers allows her to basically control gravity in any way she wants, including shifting the gravity in any direction to travel by falling, making objects have zero gravity, and create gravitational hurricanes and black holes, all without making contact with what she wants gravity to affect. Her only weakness is she has to be near her gravity cat, Dusty to use her powers, or she’ll be powerless.
