Jet Set Radio Tags PSN on 9/18 and PlayStation Vita on 10/16

50°
118w ago - Sega Community Manager Julian Mehlfeld announced today that Jet Set Radio is tagging PSN on 9/18 (available now for PlayStation Plus members) and PS Vita on 10/16.

To quote: Jet Set Radio is returning in glorious HD on PlayStation Network and PS Vita as part of Sega's Heritage Collection!

Originally launched in the year 2000 on Dreamcast, Jet Set Radio has always been regarded as a true SEGA classic - bringing a genre-bending mix of rollerblading, stylish graffiti, and a soundtrack that people are still talking about to this day.

Set in Tokyo-to, Jet Set Radio is the name of the pirate radio station that fuels the local street gangs called 'Rudies'. The game follows a group of Rudies called The GG's, as they challenge the rival gangs for control of Tokyo-to. Powered by magnetically enhanced in-line skates, they grind, jump and tag their way while avoiding the ever present and increasingly ruthless police force.

Our goal with Jet Set Radio (and indeed all the Heritage Collection titles) has been to deliver the closest experience to the original product and, when possible, improve on it.

Wait - I know the chill you get when the word 'improve' is mentioned in the same breath as your favorite game, and I can assure you that the core of the game is completely unchanged....

If you're wondering what's next in line for the series, I'm happy to confirm the arrival of Ecolibrium.

Ecolibrium is an imaginative real-time eco-system simulator where the aim is to maintain harmony within your own created environment. You need to select creatures, plants and artefacts to create a balanced eco-system.

If your eco-system is not balanced, you can feed your animals manually or exile unwanted animals into the wilderness using Vita's near feature for others to pick up for their respective eco-system.

Grow your world by hunting fantastical creatures from the environment around you using GPS or, if you prefer, you can sell or buy them in the online player-to-player auctions.

It's all in aid of giving your eco-system the perfect harmony, so don't be shy! And if you're competitive, try online challenges and climb up the global leaderboards.
