Jet Set Radio coming to Android later this summer

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.

No release date or pricing information is available. TalkAndroid will keep our eyes open for any updates.

OUYA Console to receive a Robotoki exclusive game

 

Remember the OUYA project? If you don’t, you can get yourself caught up about the project with our coverage on it. Whether OUYA will be a success or not, one game company has already pledged an exclusive title for the device. Robotoki, the company that’s responsible for the upcoming game Human Element, has announced that a prequel to the title will exclusively debut on the OUYA system.

If you’re not familiar with Human Element, it’s yet another game that’s set in a zombie apocalyptic word. Sick of these kinds of games yet? I’m not, especially when there’s a new twist to it rather than just another shoot-em-up style of game play, and that’s exactly what Human Element offers. Human Element’s character creation system allows players to choose between three different character classes from action, intelligence and stealth. There are also three different identities, or game modes, such as Survive Alone, Survive with a Partner and Survive with a Young Child.

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light now available in Google Play, Xperia devices only

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is now available in the Google Play Store for the respectable price of $1.29.

This game is a near direct port that was initially released on the Playstation Network and Xbox Live Marketplace back in 2010. The game was first ported onto iOS devices and has now made its way to Android. If you own a Sony Xperia device, head over to the download link or QR code after the break to make your purchase!
