The mobile versions will include the same regions to skate and adorn with spraypaint as their console cousins, including the full soundtrack, and will integrate mobile leaderboard support with OpenFeint. Gamers will also be able to upload photos from their devices' cameras into the game for use as personalized graffiti. No mention was made of the price for any of the game's versions.

The original Jet Set Radio for Dreamcast, which was released in 2000 as Jet Grind Radio in North America, was hailed by GameSpot for its unique visual design and balanced gameplay upon its release in 2000.
