Team Reptile Announces “Jet Set Radio” Spiritual Successor “Bomb Rush Cyberfunk”
Since much of SEGA’s creative spark seems to have left the company years ago, it’s now up to a new generation of creators and a few SEGA expatriates to honor the company’s legacy of innovation.
Enter Team Reptile, a game developer based out of The Netherlands, who has taken up the mantle that SEGA’s Smilebit studio left behind by creating a spiritual successor to the Dreamcast classic Jet Set Radio. Titled Bomb Rush Cyberfunk, the action adventure aims to replicate the feel, style, and sounds of the Jet Set Radio games of the early 2000’s. Team Reptile even snagged Jet Set Radio‘s original composer, Hideki Naganuma, to contribute to the soundtrack.
That may sound all well and good, but does Team Reptile truly understand the concept of love? Let’s take a look at the full breakdown of the game taken from the Bomb Rush Cyberfunk Steam page and see:
Team Reptile brings you Bomb Rush Cyberfunk, 1 second per second of highly advanced funkstyle. In a world from the mind of Dion Koster, where self-styled crews are equipped with personal boostpacks, new heights of graffiti are reached. 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.
- In the game you can choose a character from your crew and explore the three-dimensional streets freely.
- Each stage is a neighborhood that represents one time of day.
- You can grind, slide, jump, trick and airdash to move around
- The goal is to get your name up, your name up on the wall. Every stage has many spots to find where you can paint graffiti.
- You will encounter a lot of weirdos.
– Will the game have online multiplayer?
The experience is focused on single-player, no further comment as of yet.
– When will the game be released?
Not this year, it’s unlucky.
– Remember the future?
Nothing for nothing.
As noted above, there is no release date for the game yet. That gives us all plenty of time to rehearse our best DJ Professor K…
“Bomb Rush Cyberfuuuuuuuuuunk!”
Meh. It’s just not the same, is it?
