Those who remember the Dreamcast with great affection will likely recall the name, Jet Set Radio .

And the good news is that it's coming back: Sega has announced that DJ Professor K, Beat, Gum, and all the GGs will once again hit the streets to tag walls, billboards and even rival gang members. The upgraded high-definition version will hit the PSN, XBLA and Windows PC Digital Download this summer. The normal time to be out skatin'.

In a futuristic Japanese city, gangs fight for the right to express themselves "against an overbearing, corporate-controlled police force." Speeding around on magnetically driven inline skates (back when inline skating was all the rage), these deviant artists will make their mark…literally. Furthermore, Sega will give fans a chance to share their own personalized graffiti; you can design 18 brand new pieces of in-game art that may eventually be seen by gamers around the world.

Winners will receive a prize pack that includes a Rukus from Eton Corporation, plus "a number of other wicked rewards." For more information, be sure to visit the contest's official website .

I actually played and liked this series. I finished JSRF, but never the original. I prefered the more open world design of JSRF.

Because that was its name on the DC. Jet set radio future was for the xbox. I think its a weird translation thing to be honest.

This is only my favorite Sega game, ever! I can't wait! This contest would be for me, since I've been known to do some graffiti back in the day, but I haven't drawn in over a year and a half. So I don't know if I still have it in me. I was a more realistic portraits kind of guy anyway.

So is this Jet Grind Radio or Jet Set Radio? We have to solve this!

I would really really hope they put JSRF on the PSN because it is greatly superior to the original even though when I firt played Jet Grind Radio I thought it was the best game ever!

Still will pick this up because I like supporting sega.
