Jet Set Radio Redesign Project 10/19: Cube

Cube all in all has a really simple design in both games and I wanted to mostly keep to that. She’s a cool character the plays semi-important roles in both games. In JSR she was a young roodie trying to find her lost friend, in JSRF she’s the harsh leader of Poison Jam, one of the rival gangs. Pretty different between the two personality wise, huh? In both games she’s awesome though.


Well, maybe if you didn’t spend all day hanging around three smelly musclebound hicks you might have a better shot.


Intimidated? By Cube? I don’t know if that’s what I’d call it…We’ve been friends for a long time now, but she keeps trying to get me to ask Gum out for her. When I kindly suggest that she do it herself, I am slightly afraid she will curb stomp me into next month.


Sony TR-1825

Released in 1970, when Sony had become the first Japanese company to list shares on the New York Stock Exchange. Sliding the faces on this cubic radio reveals a speaker in front and controls on top, a unique design at the time. One version of its packaging commemorates the World Expo in Osaka, held in March that year, and many expo-goers picked up the radio as a gift.
