Jet Set Radio available for download on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC this week

by

SEGA’s unique platformer Jet Set Radio will become available for purchase online through the PlayStation 3’s PlayStation Store and Xbox 360’s Xbox Live Arcade this week, as well as on Steam for Windows. A version for the PlayStation Vita handheld is also upcoming, but not until later this year.

Although all versions of the title are the same purchase price of 10 USD (800 Microsoft points on Xbox 360), it should be noted that the content is slightly different on each platform. Most notably the PlayStation 3 version has the least amount of unlockable trophies/achievements of all releases and the upcoming PlayStation Vita game has optional touch-based spray can controls.

Known as Jet Grind Radio in North America at the time, Jet Set Radio was originally released on the Dreamcast in 2000 and was praised for its unique style, based on both its soundtrack (which will mostly be retained, but not fully) and it’s unique ‘cel-shaded’ graphics that launched a new visual style within video games.
