Jet Set Radio Future Overview
Jet Set Radio Future (ジェットセットラジオフューチャー) is the sequel to the Dreamcast’s Jet Grind Radio / Jet Set Radio (ジェット セット ラジオ) by Smilebit.
JSRF sees the gang’s city invaded by the Rokkaku corporation, who are oppressing the citizens. Your job is to spray graffiti all over Tokyo in order to oppose those jerks.
Jet Set Radio‘s timer was removed and tagging is now done by a simple button press. They’ve added a dash ability at the cost of some spray cans. You can also now view your surroundings in a first-person perspective by using the Xbox’s right analog stick.
The gameplay environments are also occupied by more NPCs and seem much livelier than in the original game.
The soundtrack in JSRF is packed with even more new, diverse, and quirky music for you to check out. JGR fan favorites Hideki Naganuma and Guitar Vader return.
After you finish the game, you can spend your time collecting Graffiti Souls to unlock spray designs and enjoy the new multiplayer modes.
Jet Set Radio Future was eventually bundled with Sega GT 2002 and even included as a pack-in for Xbox bundles.

Ports & Remakes
-None yet, but the fan community has been really rallying for an HD remaster lately!
–Jet Set Radio Future was nominated to be in The Art of Video Games exhibit in the Smithsonian American Art Museum, but lost out to Halo 2. The “dude bro” was strong that year, because Psychonauts also shared the ballot with them.
Here is a FAQ for the game by immortals.
