Jet Set Radio HD screens already have our money

HD update looks how we remember it

Sega has released a couple of screenshots for its Jet Set Radio HD upgrade and detailed a custom graffiti competition for the game.


By now you should be familiar with the Dreamcast classic, Jet Set Radio is loved for its distinct visual style (cel-shading wasn't as prevelant back in 2000) and infectious soundtrack. The skating and city tagging gameplay was pretty darn good too.

Here's Sega's official description:

"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 colourful 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."

If you've never played Jet Set Radio you should admit you've made some poor life choices and then swear an oath that you'll pick this up when it comes out.

Check out the trailer released last week below and then take a look at the new screens at the bottom of this here news story.
