Click to watch embedded media Team Reptile revealed a trailer for its new game, Bomb Rush Cyberfunk, which is bound to turn a few heads. If you’re getting some serious Jet Set/Grind Radio vibes from the colorful, cel-shaded clip, it’s no accident. Sega may be content in leaving the Dreamcast-era franchise dormant, but old-school fans have been clamoring for an update for years and now someone is doing something about it.
Bomb Rush Cyberfunk features a soundtrack from original composer Hideki Naganuma, which is fairly self-evident if you close your eyes and listen to the trailer. Other than that, it looks like a fairly faithful rework of the game, with vibrant characters who skate around while tagging the world. If none of this makes sense, ask your parents.
It’s currently only listed for a PC release with a release sometime in 2021. On the Steam page, the game’s developers explain why, saying of 2020, “Not this year, it’s unlucky.”
