Bomb Rush Cyberfunk Brings Big Jet Set Radio Energy To Switch In 2022

Understand, Understand

Bomb Rush Cyberfunk

If you’re a big Jet Set Radio fan, there hasn’t been a lot to look forward to in recent years. A port of the original game made the rounds back in 2012 but nearly a decade later we haven’t even seen ports of the sequel, let alone anything new. It feels like at this point the most Sega is willing to invest in the series are a few cameos. Want to play Beat in the new Super Monkey Ball ports? That can happen. Want to skate around the city with him? Not happening. The team behind Bomb Rush Cyberfunk hope to at least scratch an itch for those missing the series.

While it isn’t technically a Jet Set Radio title, Bomb Rush Cyberfunk draws more than a little inspiration from it. From the skating, to the cel-shaded visuals, to the graffiti and music, it almost pushes past homage. Even the way the characters move in cutscenes looks the same. It also looks great though and Switch fans should be excited as this is a timed console exclusive. The game will also release on PC in 2022 via Steam. Developed by Team Reptile, the team behind the Lethal League games, it has a pedigree behind it too.

He enjoys most genres but is always pulled back to classic RPG's, with his favorite games ever including Suikoden II, Panzer Dragoon Saga, and Phantasy Star IV. Don't worry though, he thinks new games are cool too, with more recent favorites like Hades, Rocket League, and Splatoon 2 stealing hundreds of hours of his life. When he isn't playing games he's often watching classic movies, catching a basketball game, or reading the first twenty pages of a book before getting busy and forgetting about it.
