Jet Set Radio Composer Will Create Music For Hover: Revolt of Gamers

Recommended Videos

Hover: Revolt of Gamers, the indie game heavily inspired by Jet Set Radio and Mirror’s Edge, has just hit its third stretch goal, and that means it’s getting a new mode and a fantastic composer to make music for it.


Hideki Naganuma, composer of Jet Set Radio and Jet Set Radio Future, will be working on Hover, now that the game has hit the $60,000 mark on Kickstarter. In an update on the game’s Kickstarter page, Naganuma states: “It was love at first sight. Hover has hot graphics and a cool worldview. At first glance, I felt like I’d love to make music for Hover. This feeling’s been a long time since Jet Set Radio Future.”


Meanwhile, the new mode is called “Graffiti Mode”. The Graffiti system will be used on two occasions—during a classic mode, where you’ll spray graffiti over the background during special anti-propoganda missions, and during graffiti tricks, where you’ll leave graffiti on surfaces while performing tricks on them.


Once you’ve left your graffiti on a surface, you and your allies will gain either a jump or speed boost when they go over it.


Hover’s next stretch goal is at the $80,000 mark. Reaching this stretch goal will allow the development team to make the city twice as large with the addition of a new district. A stretch goal after that, at the $100,000 mark, will allow for a Wii U version to be developed with features designed around the Wii U GamePad.
