Jet Set Radio, the popular game of SEGA Dreamcast fame, has made the jump to mobile and is available now for purchase in Google Play. The game focuses on skating through cities to spray graffiti, which requires players to ride rails on subways and shopping centers, scale buildings, and then tag designated areas. A few new features have been added to the Android port, including the ability to take a picture of an area and add graffiti to it in the game.
SEGA brags that its game features high-resolution visuals and 29 of the 30 original songs featured in the Dreamcast version of the game. While that might sound great for everyone craving nostalgia, be warned that the better graphics and upbeat soundtrack also translate to 587MB of required storage.
Android 2.2 or higher devices can download Jet Set Radio from Google Play. The game retails for $4.99 and should be compatible with most current smartphones and tablets.
