After the events of Gravity Rush 2, the Goodwill Emissary from Hekseville and her assistant arrive in New Yerk City to bring a gift from D'nelica for Smithers. However, it turns out to be an act of deceit; the Goodwill Emissary and her assistant are actually villains respectively named Princess Pherba and the evil mysterious woman Dark Kat, who quickly ransack the hospital by stealing the Apple of Light using Plaque.
Meanwhile, Kat and Dusty are at her house, when Raven runs by to alert Kat to the ordeal; Kat heads off to New Yerk City, only to be arrested by a pair of police officers. In court, the prosecution reveals that the Apple of Light from the hospital is missing. Eyewitness accounts indicate that Kat is the guilty party, and despite Raven's attempted objection, Kat is found guilty and is thrown in jail where she meets an elderly prisoner. While there, she inflates herself, inadvertently breaking the bars from her holding cell. However, the guards attempt to extend her sentence and escort her to an available cell that is not broken, but Raven says that Kat is innocent, to which they agree to let her save New Yerk from Pherba, Dark Kat and the Plaque.
