Jet Set Radio hits the air in September for $10

HD rerelease of Sega Dreamcast action game hits Xbox 360, PS3, PC next month; Vita version to follow October 16.


Nearly a dozen years after its Dreamcast debut, Jet Set Radio returns to the airwaves next month. Sony today detailed September release dates and a $10 price point for the downloadable game on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

PS3 owners will get first crack at the game, with PlayStation Plus subscribers able to download it September 11. The rest of the PS3 installed base can find the game in the PlayStation Store beginning September 18. Jet Set Radio will launch for the Xbox 360 and PC (on Steam) September 19.

The game is also coming to the PS Vita, although owners of Sony's newest handheld will have to wait until October 16 to download it. In addition, Android and iOS editions of the game are set for release this summer, although Sega hasn't announced pricing or exact release dates for those just yet.

Jet Set Radio--known as Jet Grind Radio in North America--shipped in 2000 for the Sega Dreamcast. The game stars Beat, the leader of a graffiti gang, who zips around the futuristic city of Tokyo on inline skates. Rather than settling gang disputes with violence, players steal turf from opposing crews by tagging the city with graffiti art.
