More Jet Set Radio Details Surface

By Michelle Balsan, 6 years ago
Between the release of yesterday's screens and now, several new details about Sega's Jet Set Radio have emerged, thanks to a chat Sega had with Joystiq.


Unlike Crazy Taxi, where none of the game's original licensed music made it to the XBLA version, Sega did take great efforts to retain as many of the tracks as they could. Of the 30, the publisher managed to reclaim rights to 16 of the tunes originally featured in the Dreamcast title.

Here's the full track list for you:
Original songs by Hideki Naganuma
Grace and Glory
Humming the Bassline
Let Mom Sleep
Moody's Shuffle
Rock It On
Sweet Soul Brother
That's Enough

Licensed tracks
Toronto - Electric Tooth Brush
Magical Girl - Guitar Vader
Super Brothers - Guitar Vader
Bout the City - Reps
Funky Radio - B.B. Rights
Mischievous Boy - Castle Logical
Yellow Bream - F-Fields
Everybody Jump Around - Richard Jacques
Any tracks that were included for specific regions (so PAL or NTSC) will not be available in the XBLA iteration. As for the levels made for these regions, such as Grind Square, the will be available in the upcoming release. Of course, this will all be presented in glorious HD at 60 frames per second.

Jet Set Radio will be released on the Xbox LIVE Arcade this Summer.
