Sega’s Jet Set Radio finally gets an official release date for Android

Released back in 2000 for the Sega Dreamcast, Jet Set Radio has long held the top spot as one of my top 10 favorite video games of all time. Yes, it’s that good. To say I was ecstatic when the HD remake was finally released for the Xbox 360 and PS3 consoles a few weeks ago is an understatement. But, as so often is the case with console titles, my busy “on-the-go” lifestyle doesn’t afford me the luxury of sitting on my couch for more than 10 minutes at a time.

You can imagine my excitement when I learned that the Sega/Smilebit classic would also be making its way to Android and although we didn’t have an actual release date back when we first told you guys about it (summer has long come and gone), today we finally have a firm date to peg on the title. Mark your calenders for November 29th and get ready to skate, grind, and graffiti your way across a cel shaded Tokyo. This has got to be one of the best years ever for Android gamers. Now where’s Crazy Taxi?

    I wonder if this has MOGA controller support? Even if it does, I wonder if the game is optimized for touch to the point where it hinders the experience.

      I’m sure it will come out of the box with controller support. I mean, it’s Sega, not some randome indie developer.

    I already own it for my Dreamcast, my PC, the sequel for my xbox, and I’m certainly going to get it for my tablet. I just hope it supports the Drone when it comes out.

      Me too! One of the best soundtracks in gaming :D

    • onpoint G

      Since you have a dreamcast I need to know do you have another classic game which I pray they will bring POWERSTONE!

      • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

        I’ve been asking for a Powerstone sequel forever now. Maybe in the Xbox 720? :D

        • Gladiator_Posse

          I thought there was a Powerstone 2 on DC already. My favorite: GigaWing 2!!!

      • blest

        Sega could make so much profit if they put out power stone then added multiplayer features. I’d pay 15 for it. o_O

  • lonestaroc

    this game gave me life back when I was only 16 or 17! omfg and yes the soundtrack is one of the best ever in gaming. .

    It’s Jet GRIND radio right? That’s the original. The future one was Jet Set Radio. But they’re both great games.
