Jet Set Radio announced for PlayStation Vita


SEGA's cel-shaded Dreamcast classic Jet Set Radio will be coming to the PlayStation Vita this summer, the company announced today.

Previously announced for consoles, Jet Set Radio will be an updated version featuring upgraded HD visuals paired with the original iconic soundtrack.

Jet Set Radio will make use of the Vita's unique features "providing new ways for gamers to interact with the environments of Tokyo-to, from touch functionality that makes spraying graffiti more natural to Vita camera integration."  SEGA has said the game "loses nothing in the way of content or experience" in comparison to its console and PC brethren.

“The fan reaction to our recent reveal of Jet Set Radio has been incredible!” said Haruki Satomi, Senior Vice President of Digital Business at SEGA. “As Jet Set Radio is focused on creativity, the touch capabilities of the PlayStation Vita are proving to be a perfect fit.”

The game will be playable at this year's E3 so we'll be sure to get you a preview of our experiences with it on the handheld.  For the record, we also loved the HD remake on the consoles.  It will still be released on Xbox 360, PC, and PS3 this summer.
