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. Further details can be found on sega.com.

Iv honestly been blanking on anything for this, I almost feel bad just doing something really generic like they seem to want. The guy that I learned from became a big thing here when he was taggin the very top of bridges and stuff. He eventually got caught and Il just say they beat his head in on fines and everything but it was fun while it lasted haha. Everytime I go into the city its funny to see his tag on the bridge. They will never get it off cause no ones willin to climb up lol.

After reading through the rules I think its pretty clear what you need to do to win that one. Some type of skull of spray can, random kanji, some inline guy or girl, and toss some bright colors in there. Basically get as far from actual graffiti as possible and just go Disney with it lol.

JSR had a time limit. JSR: Future was free roam. What makes you think the original soundtrack won't be on it?
