The game looks very similar to the original, to the point where I think they’re actually using the same engine as VC Remastered. That’s a good thing, since the CANVAS engine doesn’t rely on super-detailed graphics. I’m hopeful that this game is going to be a return to form for the series. One thing that does stand out is the lack of PC version. It’s simply incomprehensible, given that the game sold almost 1 million copies on PC at this point.
It’s probably the same reason why so many other franchises haven’t been revived. They can’t afford to take the risk, and I don’t think there’s anyone left at SEGA that would have an idea on how to make a worthy sequel. A lot of their focus is also on the mobile market now. The best we can hope for is for SEGA Europe to port Jet Set Radio Future to PC. Microsoft can sort of help by making JSRF compatible with Xbox One.
