Pleajeune 3

Pleajeune as it appears in Gravity Rush

Pleajeune (プレジューヌ, Purejūnu) is a location in Hekseville, the second of the four districts to which Kat travels in Gravity Rush. Also called the Entertainment District, it houses numerous bars, shops, and venues that offer all manner of recreation and enjoyment. Additionally, it is home to Arquebus Academy.

It is also a location in Gravity Rush 2.

Geography Edit

From the world map, Pleajeune is located on the Northern side of the World Pillar. This district is often bustling with activity, as there are a lot of night clubs, shops, bars, and even a Ferris Wheel. It is a very popular hotspot for young people, particularly students of Arquebus Academy, which is located just outside the district centre.

Story Edit

Gravity Rush Edit

Kat decides to check out the entertainment district after recovering the missing part of Auldnoir. It is here where she meets then-student Newt, who seemed to develop a small crush on her. Newt asks Kat to help him find where his childhood friend, Echo has disappeared to. After saving her from being consumed by a Nevi, Kat is tasked with finding the missing part of Pleajeune, while lamenting over why Raven hates her.

In the Spy Pack DLC, Kat tries to infiltrate a notorious street gang known as The Snakerabbits. This part of the DLC takes place in Pleajeune.

Gravity Rush 2 Edit

Kat returns to Pleajeune after her 3 year absence when she discovers that her old friend, Aki, had relocated Pandora's Fortunes. She finds Newt and Echo, who are now married, and Echo expecting a baby. After meeting Dr. Brahman, she brings him to Pleajeune to relive memories of the time he used to spend with his daughter before she became seriously ill.

Kat flees to Pleajeune after she is framed for murder, where she is approached by a strange Grigo that seems to want to help her. After she is led to the centre of the district, Kat is cornered by Kali, and the two fight in the street after Chaz broadcasts the discarded video tape from a smashed Grigo. It is at this point where Raven makes her return to Hekseville, bringing Cecie through the wormhole with her.

Kat spends a lot of her time in Pleajeune assisting Aki with various tasks for her business, and winds up helping Newt, now a teacher at Arquebus Academy, with some students who were entering the grounds after hours.

Trivia Edit

  • Pleajeune's name is most likely a combination of "Pleasure" and jeune, the French word for "young" or "youth."
  • When carrying Newt around Arquebus Academy in Episode 7: Too Many Secrets, some precious gems can often be found in a heart formation.
  • In both games, the missions given out by Newt both take place in Pleajeune, mostly in Arquebus Academy, and reward Kat with the Arquebus school uniform in each game.
  • In Gravity Rush 2, fireworks will occasionally be set off in Pleajeune. A group of citizens gathers behind the ferris wheel and launches them into the air. If Kat attempts to shift into the fireworks, she will stop and cry out as if taking damage (although no actual damage is incurred). It is still unclear what triggers the fireworks show.
