Lol I was just about to post this ,but yeah when I heard crazy taxi was coming in October the first thing I thought was where is jet set radio ,im hoping that they will release it same time as the vita version so all mobile devices will get it at the same time ,but it would be awesome to get jet set & crazy taxi in the same month ,but I doubt it

I can't fathom how they can translate the controls to a touch screen, remember how you had to boost, change gear down then change up and hit gas at the same time or something.

You had to press a and right trigger at the sametime how can they translate those controls. To drift also you had to use two buttons together if I remember correctly.

That is exactly the thing that worries me, too...

The controls, playing the Dreamcast version of the game, really required some dexterity to master. I agree with you...no idea how this game will translate to iOS. I can't envision the controls being any good, though if they support iCade, I'd be more interested.

In the meantime, I'm still waiting on Jet Set Radio for iOS. It was announced a while ago and seems to have vanished in the ether. I posted to Sega's Twitter feed about JSR and they said it is still on the way.
