May 25, 2012Written by Alex Osborn

Sega has just announced that they will be bringing the much beloved Dreamcast classic Jet Set Radio to the PlayStation Vita.

The game will be available this summer and will take advantage of a number of the Vita’s features. This portable version will allow you to spray graffiti by using the Vita’s touch controls and make use of the camera to undoubtedly import your own images into the game. Not only that, but the publisher went on to add that the title will be playable at E3.

A high-definition port of Jet Set Radio was already confirmed earlier this year for the PS3 and Xbox 360. It’s great to see that a PS Vita port of the game will launch alongside the other versions this summer.

In a statement from Haruki Satomi, the Sega Senior VP of Digital Business shared his excitement in the announcement, saying:

The fan reaction to our recent reveal of Jet Set Radio has been incredible! As Jet Set Radio is focused on creativity, the touch capabilities of the PlayStation VITA are proving to be a perfect fit.
