Dreamcast classic Jet Set Radio will be released in upgraded high definition this summer on Xbox LIVE Arcade, PSN and PC digital download, SEGA has announced.
Jet Set Radio lets players join the GGs, an up-and-coming street gang in the futuristic city of Tokyo-to, fighting for the right to self-expression against an overbearing, corporate-controlled police force. Rolling and leaping through crowded urban environments on magnetically driven inline skates, players take control of gang leader Beat and his growing posse of deviant artists as they steal turf from the local gangs by covering the city with colourful graffiti.
There's no word on how SEGA is handling the port besides confirmation of high definition visuals.
SEGA has also announced a contest that will let US and UK Jet Set Radio fans share their own love for (digital) graffiti. Fans will get a shot at designing eighteen brand new pieces of in-game art. Winners will receive a prize pack that includes a Rukus from Etón Corporation – the world's first Bluetooth sound system with solar power – and a number of other rewards.
