If you aren’t already excited for the upcoming re-release of Jet Set Radio by TriplePoint client SEGA, then I don’t know if we can be friends. So, assuming you’re already leaping out of your seat with joy, I need you to sit back down, so I can give you another reason to jump up (jump up and get down). Today, it was announced that JSR is going fully mobile, with versions coming to both iOS and Android. It makes sense; I mean, we’ve been able to listen to the radio from portable devices for decades now, so I really don’t see why we wouldn’t be able to do this. But, yeah — JSR on iOS. Yes, please.
From the press release:
Jet Set Radio for iOS and Android includes the same slick gameplay, genre-blending soundtrack, and pioneering art style as the other versions alongside new features like OpenFeint and Retina display support and the awesome ability to use pictures taken with your phone or tablet’s camera as in-game graffiti! Traverse Shibuya terminal on the train, silence the Love Shockers on your lunch break, blast through Benten-cho while boarding a bus and upload achievements to Facebook while riding a ferry; Jet Set Radio will be a dream come true for portable gamers everywhere!
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again — this summer’s release of JSR can’t come soon enough.
