Bomb Rush Cyberfunk is Team Reptile’s love letter to Jet Set Radio

Indie studio Team Reptile, the creators of Lethal League, have announced their newest project: Bomb Rush Cyberfunk. One look at the game and you can guess what SEGA game the team not only was heavily inspired by, but almost straight up lifted from with surprising 1:1 accuracy. Snail Maze!

Just kidding, I’m talking about Jet Set Radio.

Inaccurately referred to as a spiritual successor to Jet Set Radio and Jet Set Radio Future by some members of the gaming community, the game is instead a loving homage to the classic SEGA franchise emulating the art style, gameplay and even music. While none of the developers from SEGA had a hand in creating this game, thus why it is not a spiritual successor, Team Reptile did manage to get Hideki Naganuma to work on some music for the game’s soundtrack. Naganuma had worked with Team Reptile before on Lethal League Blaze.

The game’s steam page describes Bomb Rush Cyberfunk as a game where players will “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”.

We’re excited to see more of the game, and you can add the game to your wishlist by checking out the Steam page. Bomb Rush Cyberfunk is due out 2021 for PC.

    Damns that looks like a straight JSR rip-off! They even made everything low poly to match the DC looks!
    I’ll be waiting for this one!

    Only thing that bothers me about this whole project is that the phrase “from the mind of Dion Koster” keeps popping up in a lot of Team Reptile’s promotional material and it’s like… dude, no. Know your place. Everyone appreciates what you and your team are doing enormously here, but while “Pretty Much Jet Set Radio 3” is something that you obviously put a ton of care, effort, passion, and hours into, this is not “from your mind”. Produced by. Created by. Realized by. Anything else.

    Sorry, being pedantic and stupid. This team has done great work and I can’t wait to hear Naganuma’s contributions.
