Sega has already enjoyed a measure of success with two ports
from its wonderful Dreamcast line-up, and now Jet Set Radio
will join the likes of Shenmue
on the "rumored" pile. A "Jet Grind Radio" trademark was filed over at the USPTO
last week by Sega, while Kotaku heard whisperings at the ongoing Comic-Con 2008
festival that the trademark referred to a new Wii game.
Though we should emphasize the "whisperings" part of that last sentence, it's difficult not to get massively over-excited by the idea of a Jet Set Radio
on Wii. The original game, now a breathtaking eight years old, exuded style and flair from every pore, with to-die-for cel-shaded visuals and a soundtrack that is played on the Wii Fanboy stereo to this day. We'd take a trip back to Shibuya-cho and Professor K any day of the week, and we'll do it with Wii MotionPlus compatibility, if you're reading this, Sega.
