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.
Jet Set Radio Future was at one point set to be called Jet Grind Radio Future in the US, similar to the Dreamcast's Jet Set Radio becoming Jet Grind Radio in that region.
Jet Set Radio Future was not a success in Japan (likely due to the lukewarm reception of the Xbox console itself), reportedly selling less than 10,000 units within its first two months in that territory.
