Jet Set Radio Confirmed, First Screens

As pretty much everyone guessed, Sega are re-releasing Jet Set Radio for PSN and Xbox Live. The Dreamcast original was brilliant, and this’ll be a much stronger release than the likes of Bass Fishing.

“Jet Set Radio lets players join the GGs,” says the press release, “an up-and-coming street gang in the futuristic city of Tokyo-to, fighting for the right to self-expression against an overbearing, corporate-controlled police force.”

“Rolling and leaping through crowded urban environments on magnetically driven inline skates, players take control of gang leader Beat and his growing posse of deviant artists as they steal turf from the local gangs by covering the city with colorful graffiti.”

The re-release will be an “upgraded HD version” and will release in the Summer.

  1. Vita.

    Make it so.

    (Also… YEEEEEESS!!!)

    • I second this.

      Motion carried?

  2. Original soundtrack please!!!!!

    • I sure hope so. Nothing beats those beats. These look really good. That’s one of the best things about cell shading, it can never really look dated. I can’t wait for this even though I still have my Dreamcast and a copy of the original.

  3. Wait what Jet Set Radio? What?! WHAT?! :D

    • Agreed. This will be an instant buy. I loved this game and it’s sequel too. I hope this does well enough to convince Sega to try a brand new entry.

  4. Hmmmm from previous comments on this article and just in general, I think I might be abused for this next statement….

    I have neither played or even seen this game in action before. Those screenshots are the first time I’ve seen this game at all.

    Bring it on!

    • You have so much to look forward to, JSR was along with Shenmue my favourite games of the Dreamcast/PS2/Gamecube era.

      I just hope they do the port justice.

  5. Loved this game. Glad it’s back. Sold. I heard they’re doing a design comp to ad new graf designs.

  6. I hope it doesn’t have that stupid border thing that Sonic was cursed with.

  7. Fantabolous! I really want to play Future on my old Xbox now, hopefully that’ll get the HD treatment aswell.

  8. Rollerblading games…….lol!

  9. Hoping this might come to the Vita at some point – is it too much to hope that the PSN version is a ‘buy once, play on both’ sort of deal?

  10. Ah the memories…day one!
