Jet Set Radio HD Coming To Consoles And Windows PC
SEGA has announced that their cult classic Jet Set Radio, one of the pioneering video games to use cel-shading, is coming back in HD to modern consoles and Windows PC. The original game was released on the SEGA Dreamcast in 2000, and featured a fun premise- you need to “tag” or graffiti as much of the futuristic Tokyo landscape as you can, paiting over buildings, billboards, even rival gang members.
“Every time we look at our favorite SEGA classics, the fans never fail to ask about Jet Set Radio,” said Haruki Satomi, Senior Vice President of Digital Business at SEGA of America. “The game was unlike anything else when it first came out, and was one of the first games in history to use cel-shading. More importantly, Jet Set Radio is a game that celebrates self-expression, and we’re looking forward to seeing how gamers and artists come together to leave their mark on Tokyo-to.”
