The neon streets of Bomb Rush Cyberfunk will likely look inviting to fans of cel-shaded counter-culture classic Jet Set Radio. The spiritual successor will grind its way onto Switch and PC on 18th August, with a PlayStation release date potentially coming a week later, but that last part remains slightly unclear.
Back in 2021, developer Team Reptile said that "other platforms follow about a week later", suggesting a period of Nintendo Switch exclusivity, but those other platforms have yet to be specified. As Gematsu suggests, it's likely safe to assume the other platforms are some combination of PS5, PS4, Xbox Series, and Xbox One (probably safe to rule Stadia out). We contacted Team Reptile for clarification, and they confirmed the game would be getting a release on PlayStation, but that they don't have an exact date yet.
What do you think of Bomb Rush Cyberfunk? What are your memories of Jet Set Radio? Reminisce in the comments section below.

One of the reasons I bought an OG Xbox was for JSRF
No doubt the Microsoft lobbyist and Senators will be readying the knives
I loved jet set radio on the dreamcast and jsrf was amazing on the xbox so i'll welcome this with open arms.@BusyOlf they would if it was the other way round but at the moment they are flipping sony the bird from a distance...
The game looks fun but the soundtrack doesn’t work for me.
A week-long gap between releases is not a period of timed exclusivity in any meaningful sense. It's just not a simultaneous release across all platforms.
Can't wait for this game. I still play Jet Set Radio occasionally via bc on xbox, and wish they would get Future playable on newer consoles, I hope for it every e3. One of my favourite games from Dreamcast, which was one of my favourite consoles of all time. So many great games
Wow... it really looks like JSR.
Good timing with that leak too.
@R_Ryder Yeah that particular song just sounds awful with everything from the rapping to the melody. Can't say I'm all that impressed either. Just looks like a clone of Jet Set Radio but in higher graphics, some of the animations even look ripped straight from the game.
Super hyped for this! Also just happened to be listening to the JSR soundtrack as I read this, which made my day
Just before the news of the alleged official sequel drop. Perfect timing
It's one thing to take inspiration from another game but replicating both the gameplay and visual style just comes across as shameless. Even the animations look like they were lifted straight from Jet Set Radio.
I’m looking forward to this. I loved JSR so much on the Dreamcast I bought the Xbox to play JSRF. Hopefully the game is good because I just LOVED the original 2 so much. I’m also hoping that leak from SEGA is legit and we get more in the series from them.
I dont mind getting a game later it most of the time means you will be getting the best version of it.
Great name for a game.
@Flaming_Kaiser Exactly this, good things come to those who can wait.
