Welcome to Sega Retro, a project from the people behind Sonic Retro. We aim to cover everything possible about Sega from the 1940s to today. We currently are working on 14,709 articles and have many more that are requested to be worked on.

While this wiki is designed to help the community by providing information, it is also dependent on the community to be updated. Anyone with an account may edit the wiki. As you feel more comfortable with the site, please feel free to make any changes or additions that you feel necessary.

Jet Set Radio (ジェット セット ラジオ), called Jet Grind Radio in North America, is a video game developed by Smilebit and published by Sega for the Sega Dreamcast. It is a third-person action game in which the player controls members of a rebellious gang called the GGs, roaming the streets of the fictional city Tokyo-To spraying graffiti to "take over" the area from rival gangs.

Jet Set Radio is considered to be one of the pioneers of its generation for its use of "cel-shaded" graphics, and its then-original style of gameplay. It is also notable for its soundtrack spearheaded by Hideki Naganuma.
