Jet Set Radio HD Now AvailableSeptember 18, 2012
Sega has announced that their classic Jet Set Radio HD is now available. Formerly exclusive to Dreamcast, PSN users can now get their mitts on JSR HD today, September 18, while Xbox LIVE Arcade and PC gamers will be able to purchase the title tomorrow, September 19. As a Heritage Collection title, Jet Set Radio features bonus content that will delight fans of the series, including fan-contributed graffiti and a documentary that takes a deeper look into the creation of this iconic videogame.
In the urban sprawl of Tokyo-To, gangs of youths known as ‘Rudies’ roam the streets, marking their territories with deft sprays from their graffiti cans. Taking control of Beat, the leader of the GGs, players must tag and grind their way through the city, fighting against rival gangs as well as the local police force. As the GGs recruit more members and gain notoriety, a dark plot begins to emerge involving the shadowy Rokkaku Group and its nefarious owner, Rokkaku Goji. Can Beat, Gum, Tab and the rest of the crew take back Tokyo-To and stop Goji’s evil plans in time?
“Like all our Heritage Collection titles, Jet Set Radio has been a labor of love for the digital team here at SEGA Networks” said Chris Olson, Vice President of Digital Business at SEGA Networks Co., Ltd. “We’ve aimed to rework Jet Set Radio with the reverence it deserves and we hope the fans enjoy the end result.”
