Bomb Rush Cyberfunk: The Second Coming Of... Jet Set Radio?

Bomb Rush Cyberfunk screams... Jet Set Radiooooooo with even more Hip Hop influence... in a funky super stylistic game that puts rival crews against each other while taking on the cops for the sake of either group taking full control of the five boroughs to become the all-city crew of New Amsterdam.

Start your own cypher and dance, paint graffiti, collect beats, combo your tricks, and face off with the cops to stake your claim to the sprawling metropolis of New Amsterdam.

Red is a graffiti writer who lost his head and instead uses a cyberhead to get around. In search of his roots, he joins the Bomb Rush Crew, Tryce and Bel. Together they decide to go All City, to become the best graffiti crew in the city. The more territory they gain, the more they discover who it was that cut-off Red's head and how deeply his human side is linked to the graffiti world (shout out to the legendary graffiti artist... Cornbread).


Explore the 5 main boroughs of the city to hit graffiti spots and get REP. You'll need it to challenge the rival crews to a Crew Battle.

Find new members to join your crew around the city. Spread around are also new graffiti pieces to paint, outfit colors and music to play on your flip phone.

Use skateboarding, inline skating or BMX-style tricks in the unique environment-based trick system. Extend your combos with manuals and get even higher scores by incorporating special Boost Tricks.

You can get boost power for doing long combos so the fastest way to move is also the most stylish.

Dynamic militarized police that scale up as you vandalize.

This game totally has Jet Set Radio written all over it, and makes me crave a new official installment from SEGA, which... if you didn't know, is currently in the works alongside a new Crazy Taxi. As some of you know (because I've spoken with some of you face to face about it)... I freaking love these games. I still own them for the Dreamcast and felt for a long time that sequels or full remakes were rightfully deserved. So if Sega truly goes big... get ready to scarf up some gaming gold (as long as they don't lose what made these games great). Going bigger works, but my fingers are crossed that they knock them out of the park and may be better than ever before. Holy crap, I still have to share these games with my daughter. I know what we're doing with a portion of the weekend... time to take an adventure into the vault.
