Street Gears, the closest thing to Jet Set Radio Online

By Spencer . August 21, 2007 . 8:24pm

It might be a long time until we see another Jet Set Radio game, but there is something to tide fans over. Coming from Korea is Street Gears from nflavor. Street Gears doesn’t have the tagging part of Jet Set Radio, but the style of the game seems heavily inspired by Sega’s series.



So far Street Gears is only announced for Korea. However, many Korean games have been popping up in North America care of ijji and other game portals. Perhaps someone will read about this and localize Street Gears into English. Or… if and this is a huge if Street Gears gets really successful there is always a chance for a PSP/DS port. It's not that unusual with popular PC games. Maple Story and Ragnarok Online have portable ports in development. Audition Online has a PSP port too and if that can get a release than anything can.

  • Wow, that looks pretty slick. I’m definitely interested. Please keep us posted.

    Looks pretty good. But…still like JSR more in terms of looks.

    I’m a little worried about playing this. I’ve heard a lot about the people who play Maple, Audition etc and it’s not good. A whole load of them are a bunch of freaking emo’s who are desperate to flirt with a bunch of pixels. Bunch of stupid 14 year old kids (some are even in their 20’s…so they claim). I’ve never heard of so many emo people in my life. These games are just full of them. It’s kind of why I avoid those games. The people who play them are very unsafe who always seem to have a new “girlfriend” every day. Ugh.

    Wow… Long live Jet Set Radio !!! I sure would hope it would really be a Jet Set game but still its good news.

    Ah, Koreans never fail to rip-off. Game doesn’t even look good along with the majority of their online games.
