Jet Set Radio for Android launching this Summer

Another great console port looks to be headed to Android! Sega has announced that Jet Set Radio, the graffiti tagging, street skating platformer from the original Dreamcast will be in the Google Play Store this summer.

The console it was on was way ahead of its time, and the game was one of the pioneers for the genre with games such as Mark Ecko’s Getting Up series. No pricing or exact date is available but we hope it won’t be long before we get to roam around urban city environments tagging walls to no end. [via PocketGamer]

    This would make for a really great social/augmented reality game! Imagine walking along with your phone up and on and seeing virtual graffiti.

    Wouldn’t mind a few other dreamcast favorites making their way to my android tablet. I’m thinking of you RED DOG! Giga Wing 2 was rad…Toy Commander would eat my world if it came back from the videogame graveyard.

        because the bus would have killed you is my guess… ?

          It would kill/injure you no matter what you were too distracted by to see the bus coming.

    Nice! Although I was kinda hoping they meant JSRF.

  • jesse

    Giga Wing 2, Skies of Arcadia, Evolution just to name a few extras tit would be bada$$. Sure hope JSR is Xperia PLAY optimized like the last few Sega games.

  • Don_SoLow

    WINNING! I can’t wait for this to come out!
