Happy birthday to Jet Set Radio!
On this day in 2000, Japan got Jet Set Radio on SEGA Dreamcast! Later that year, Europe and the Americas (Known as Jet Grind Radio in the US) would also learn to Understand the Concept of Love (From the sequel which I believe was more popular), how to Jump Around and Rock it On, the Recipe for the Perfect Afro, when That’s Enough, and that we should all just Let Mom Sleep!
As you can see, the games became popular for their amazing soundtrack, created mostly by Hideki Naganuma. They now are referred to as classics in the SEGA library and are a must play for any SEGA fan or anyone who has a love for Japanese street culture, art, etc.
In Jet Set Radio, you play as a graffiti artist and member of the GGs, a gang that skates up the streets of Tokyo-To. Your mission is to tag and take over the entire city and engage in turf wars and battle the police.
If you have never had the fun of playing the original game, you can get it on Steam, XBL Arcade and the Playstation Store.
There has not been a remake of the sequel to this game, Jet Set Radio Future, but I’m sure there will be one in a few years if we continue to show SEGA we want one!
Art is mine. You can favorite on dA here!
