Jet Set Radio (By Sega)

Jet Set Radio Skates onto Mobile Devices This Summer

Beloved Dreamcast Classic Announced for iOS and Android Devices

SAN FRANCISCO & LONDON - July 20, 2012 - SEGA® of America Inc. and SEGA® Europe Ltd. today disclosed that their much-anticipated HD remake of Jet Set Radio™ will also be available on iOS and Android devices when the world-famous graffiti game comes to consoles and PC digital download this summer.

Jet Set Radio for iOS and Android includes the same slick gameplay, genre-blending soundtrack, and pioneering art style as the other versions alongside new features like OpenFeint and Retina display support and the awesome ability to use pictures taken with your phone or tablet’s camera as in-game graffiti! Traverse Shibuya terminal on the train, silence the Love Shockers on your lunch break, blast through Benten-cho while boarding a bus and upload achievements to Facebook while riding a ferry; Jet Set Radio will be a dream come true for portable gamers everywhere!

Jet Set Radio will also be released on Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®Network, PlayStation® Vita systems and Windows PC Digital Download this summer. For more information on Jet Set Radio, please visit www.sega.com.

Sorry but: f*** yeah!!! I'm a great fan of both the xbox and dreamcast game, this is the biggest news for me in a while

Very cool - I'd be happy to play through the original again, my only wish is that they incorporate the auto-grab from the XBOX version...

Time to go dig out the soundtrack.

Oh my... Given the reverence that so many gamers have for this big little title I imagine there will be quite a few excited over this announcement, myself included. Thanks for posting that tidbit! Begin typical touch interface input reliability squabbles now... Only kidding. Sega has really stepped it up, ChuChu Rocket and Block People were really well done, in my opinion. Let's hope that they treat this as nicely.

Oh YEAH! Can't wait for this oldie but goodie! Any idea when it'll be released?
Also, SEGA, what happened to Sega Bass Fishing you promised a while back! Been very patient considering how I'm looking forward to THAT one!! Any info would be appreciated! Thanks!

Space channel 5 would work very well on touch screens.

Oh awesome! I really loved Jet Set Radio when I was younger and had the original Xbox. Can't wait to play Jet Set Radio again after so many years, like 5 years!!

"The Vita version, which was due to launch tomorrow as a downloadable title, has now been pushed back to an unspecified date “due to necessary development optimizations”."

I wonder what that means for the IOS version...

And with that sort of news:
The vita seems to be in a really bad position now.
