Jet Set Radio spiritual successor Bomb Rush Cyberfunk gets a new trailer and release window
Characters, environments, movement and tagging mechanics shown
Indie developer Team Reptile has released a new trailer for Bomb Rush Cyberfunk which confirms plans to release the game in 2022.
Inspired by Jet Set Radio, the upcoming game sees players skating freely around a 3D world and graffitiing various neighbourhoods to claim territories.
The action is accompanied by a soundtrack from Hideki Naganuma, the composer of Smilebit’s Sega Dreamcast classic and its 2002 Xbox sequel, Jet Set Radio Future.
Bomb Rush Cyberfunk has seen a delay since its original teaser trailer was released in July 2020, when it was scheduled to arrive on Steam and consoles in 2021.
The latest trailer shows off some new characters, environments, tagging mechanics and a trick system which features grinding, sliding, wall-running and tricking in the air and on the ground.
Hilversum, Netherlands-based Team Reptile previously developed Megabyte Punch, Lethal League and Lethal League Blaze.
The blurb accompanying the new trailer reads: “Team Reptile brings you Bomb Rush Cyberfunk, 1 second per second of highly advanced funkstyle. In a world from the mind of Dion Koster, where self-styled crews are equipped with personal boostpacks, new heights of graffiti are reached.
“Start your own cypher and dance, paint, trick, face off with the cops and stake your claim to the extrusions and cavities of a sprawling metropolis in an alternate future set to the musical brainwaves of Hideki Naganuma.”
