Gamers who remember the Sega Dreamcast may be familiar with Jet Set Radio. The game offered players the opportunity to skate around a virtual world with the goal of graffiti “tagging” different locations. Jet Set Radio was regarded as one of the top titles for the Dreamcast platform with a vibrant universe of cel-shaded graphics and a great soundtrack.
Anyone who was a fan of the game will be glad to know that Sega has announced plans to release a new version of the game later this summer that will run on Android devices. It sounds like it will be a faithful port of the old classic with only some minor tweaks or additions to allow for new technologies such as the use of cell phone pictures in game. With the improved capabilities of today’s HD devices, the graphics should be stunning.
