Jet Set Radio HD Arrives (Excluding PlayStation Plus Members): What You Need To Know

Jet Set Radio Hd Screen_thumb Sega’s releasing Jet Set Radio HD for most users next week, and we thought it’d be a good idea to take a look at what the game is about.

If you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber you’ll be getting the game a week early.

We’re not endorsing spraying graffiti over public property, though Jet Set Radio is a legitimate reason

Sega’s high definition release of Jet Set Radio is drawing excitement. The publisher is using the Sega Heritage branding to bring widescreen support, high definition resolutions, and tropies/achievements depending on your platform. Here’s what you need to know about the title.

The game is releasing September 11 for PlayStation Plus subscribers, PlayStation 3 September 18, Xbox 360 and PC (via Steam) September 19, PlayStation Vita October 16, and Android and iOS in Q4 2014.

PlayStation Plus was once a laughing stock because users paid $15 a month but didn’t get much in return. Now users are getting games from the original Sonic the Hedgehog to Far Cry 2, for free. It’s a good way for Sony to differentiate from Microsoft; the latter wouldn’t be able to deliver a service due to Xbox Live being subscription-based.

The basic gameplay in Jet Set Radio is to skate around using you pair of rollerblades, performing tricks and spreading graffiti. Graffiti takes turf from rival fans while escaping the police.

A Worthwhile Port

Ten characters are available to play: Beat, the characters players introduced to. Alongside him is Combo, Cube, Garam, Gum, Mew, Piranha, Slate, Tab, and Yoyo. You’ll unlock them throughout the game and each uses a different skating style.

29 of the 30 original tracks are available, a brat effort from Sega. Favorites include Super Brothers, Electric Tooth Brush, Bunk Radio and Rock It On are included.

30 Achievement or 9 Trophies are also available for Xbox Live and PlayStation Network respectively.

We’ll probably have impressions from Jet Set Radio HD when we play it. It should be interesting because I didn’t own a Dreamcast and therefore didn’t play Jet Set Radio. I’ll probably buy the PC version assuming it uses 60 frames-per-second and a 1080p resolution. Otherwise it’ll be Xbox Live Arcade for me.
