It was announced not too long ago that the classic Dreamcast game, Jet Set Radio(Jet Grind Radio when originally released in North America), would be heading to multiple outlets: Xbox Live, PlayStation Network, and Microsoft Windows supported by Steam. Then we were treated with more good news.
Yesterday SEGA announced that it will also be heading to the PlayStation Vita. It will support the Vita’s touch screen capabilities, allowing you to spray graffiti with just the touch of the screen, and have some use for the Vita’s camera function. SEGA insured nothing would be altered, changed or removed in the Vita version.
To those wondering, it is not a simple port, but an HD upgrade using the original North American released version(It will not use the original localized name) with the extras added in. It doesn’t stop there; additional features will include not only the widescreen HD graphics mentioned, but also online leaderboards and a new camera system. SEGA also promised they would do their best to try and keep as much of the game’s memorable soundtrack that fans loved intact, though they admitted that difficulties have sprung up dealing with certain record labels no longer existing. Jet Set Radio HD is set for release in the Summer of this year.
