For fans of the not-so-successful SEGA Dreamcast, the niche hit, Jet Set Radio has now been announced on the official SEGA Blog as getting the HD remaster treatment, heading to the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC as a downloadable title this summer. To mark the occasion, SEGA will also be holding a digital graffiti contest, open to participants in North America and the UK. From the announcement:
SEGA has also announced an upcoming contest that will let US and UK Jet Set Radio fans share their own love for (digital) graffiti. Eager fans will get a shot at designing eighteen brand new pieces of in-game art that will be seen by players the world over. Winners will receive a prize pack that includes a Rukus from Etón Corporation – the world’s first Bluetooth sound system with solar power – and a number of other wicked rewards.
