Jet Set Radio Dated For PSN, XBLA, Vita

I remember it being quite the phenomenon when it released on the Sega Dreamcast. Now, a dozen years later, it returns to garner new fans and remind the existing fans that yep, this is still a super fun game.

Sega has confirmed that Jet Set Radio will become a digital title for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC; it hits the Network on September 18 and the Xbox Live Arcade a day later. The price will be $9.99.

PlayStation Plus members will get a chance to download it a week earlier (September 11), and even Vita owners will have a shot at playing one of the more colorful and entertaining titles of an older generation. JSR will be available for Sony's new portable on October 16, and Sega has also revealed Android and iOS iterations of the game that will release some time "this summer."

What was called Jet Set Grind Radio in North America launched back in 2000 for the good ol' DC; it featured a character named Beat, the leader of a graffiti gang, who skates all over the place tagging the city to gain turf. It was quite the original concept and a whole lot of people seemed to like it. If you missed out, now's your chance to see what all the fuss was about.

I've still got my copy but I don't think I can resist an HD upgrade for ten bucks. I'm sad that there are fewer and fewer reasons to go back to my Dreamcast though.

I still have my DC copy as well. I would pick this one up in HD but sadly, after playing JSRF I just can't get into the original anymore. The sequel added so much more to the game play although it watered down the spray mechanics a bit.

Hopefully Sega gets that one on the PSN as I want to sell my original Xbox but JSRF is keeping it on my shelf :
Anyone who hasn't played this should check it out. It has one of the best soundtracks ever IMO.
