Jet Set Radio Future (JSRF ジェットセットラジオフューチャー) is a Xbox exclusive and pseudo-sequel to the Sega Dreamcast game Jet Set Radio. As the name suggests, it is set in the future (2024). It was released at the beginning of the Xbox's lifespan, and was eventually bundled with Sega GT 2002 on a single disc as a pack-in game with the system.

Gameplay

Jet Set Radio Future follows a similar plot to the original Jet Set Radio, being more of a re-telling of the original game than a fully fledged sequel. It does, however, add more content, including more gangs and larger areas. Gameplay has also been tweaked - most notably there is a multiplayer option now.

History

Development

Jet Set Radio Future was at one point set to be called Jet Grind Radio Future in the US[2], similar to the Dreamcast's Jet Set Radio becoming Jet Grind Radio in that region.
