|Jet Set Radio HD officially announced|
Iconic Dreamcast Skate-em-Up to Make a Fresh Mark on Consoles and Windows PC this Summer
SEGA of America and SEGA Europe today announced the upcoming digital release of fan-favourite: Jet Set Radio, the wall-tagging, trend-setting Dreamcast classic from 2000. DJ Professor K, Beat, Gum, and all the GGs are taking to the streets in this upgraded HD version of Jet Set Radio, which sees players vying for control of the futuristic Tokyo-to by marking their turf with graffiti tagged across walls, billboards and rival gang members. The slick gameplay, genre-blending soundtrack and pioneering art style of Jet Set Radio will be coming to Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation Network, and Windows PC Digital Download this summer.
Jet Set Radio lets players join the GGs, an up-and-coming street gang in the futuristic city of Tokyo-to, fighting for the right to self-expression against an overbearing, corporate-controlled police force. Rolling and leaping through crowded urban environments on magnetically driven inline skates, players take control of gang leader Beat and his growing posse of deviant artists as they steal turf from the local gangs by covering the city with colorful graffiti. Guided by Professor K, DJ for the hottest pirate broadcast in town – “Jet Set Radio” – the GGs will ultimately uncover the sinister plot hatched by the controlling powers of Tokyo-to.
