Lethal League developer Team Reptile announced today it is working on a spiritual successor to Sega’s Dreamcast classic Jet Set Radio called Bomb Rush Cyberfunk.
According to the game’s Steam store page, it is about tagging spots in various environments with graffiti to “get your name up” while fleeing from police by grinding, sliding, and air dashing away.
The game will also feature music by Hideki Naganuma, who contributed to the soundtracks of Jet Set Radio, Jet Set Radio Future, and Team Reptile’s own fighting game Lethal League Blaze.
“In a world from the mind of Dion Koster, where self-styled crews are equipped with personal boostpacks, new heights of graffiti are reached,” the game’s description reads. “Start your own cypher and dance, paint, trick, face off with the cops and stake your claim to the extrusions and cavities of a sprawling metropolis in an alternate future set to the musical brainwaves of Hideki Naganuma.”
Bomb Rush Cyberfunk has only been announced for Steam on PC so far and will be a single-player game, but the developer said “no further comment as of yet” for online multiplayer. The release date is planned for the future, while the trailer’s description says “coming 2021,” but will not be coming out this year as it is “unlucky.”
