We knew SEGA had plans to revive their inline skate-based graffiti classic, Jet Set Radio
, for the current generation of consoles, but today they've announced it will also be making its way to Sony's latest handheld, PlayStation Vita.
Jet Set Radio is an updated version of the celebrated SEGA Dreamcast original, featuring upgraded HD visuals paired with the original funky soundtrack that rocked the ears of gamers worldwide in 2000. The PlayStation Vita’s unique features provide new ways for gamers to interact with the environments of Tokyo-to, from touch functionality that makes spraying graffiti more natural to Vita camera integration. Jet Set Radio for PlayStation Vita is a handheld version that loses nothing in the way of content or experience in comparison with its console and PC brethren.
The press release only mentions "winter" as the release period for the game, but given the chill in the Aussie air, that's likely very soon.
