Sega To Release Dreamcast Classic Jet Set Radio On XBLA & PSN

Sega-To-Release-Dreamcast-Jet-Set-Radio-On-XBLA-PSNIf there is any Sega Dreamcast game which deserves preservation in digital form, it's Jet Set Radio. Although Sega hasn't officially confirmed nor set a date for a re-release, they've teased that the grinding graffiti classic from 2000 is set for a return on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network shortly.

Upon its arrival Jet Set Radio left an incredible impact on the gaming world thanks to its upbeat gameplay, stunning cell shaded visuals and groundbreaking soundtrack. Although a sequel was released on Microsoft Xbox and a pocket version made its way onto the GameBoy Advance, Sega has left Beat and the GG's out of action for nearly ten years.

As the teaser video below is all we have to go by, we'd like to think it's safe to say that we'll be seeing Jet Set Radio again real soon!

Hear hear about the Shenmue! I'd love it even more if it was translated to a handheld device - The PS Vita perhaps?

Although I do love JSR, I don't think I'm very good at it. Once the jet fighters come out, I'm usually toast.
