After a slight delay, the cel-shaded platformer Bomb Rush Cyberfunk lastly has a launch date: August 18th. It’s been an extended anticipate Cyberfunk after it was first introduced in 2020, and to make the wait much more excruciating, the sport is a non secular successor to the dormant Jet Set Radio collection. As such, you’ll be skating, dancing, and graffitiing throughout a vibrant 3D metropolis with a mode to die for.
Its latest trailer (embedded above) debuted ultimately evening’s Nintendo Indie Showcase, and I’d like extra of this vibe sprayed over my eyeballs, please. Proper off the bat, we see a great deal of methods we are able to doubtlessly navigate the futuristic metropolis of New Amsterdam, chaining collectively rail grinds, cartwheels befitting a gymnast, and an unnaturally excessive soar solely reserved for platformers. Town will probably be cut up into 5 boroughs which seems like 5 mini-open ranges.
The sport follows the Bomb Rush Crew as they battle different vibrant gangs for management of the streets. These aren’t the sharp gun-wielding gangs (though possibly there will probably be a few of that), these are as an alternative the spray can-welding varieties, combating over territory with the ability of artwork, man. Graffiti the town, tag your spots. A conspiracy begins when beginner Purple joins the group, and as you might need observed, he is been beheaded and now has an AI robohead as an alternative of a flesh-and-skin one. The more and more prolific police pressure will doubtless play a task too.
Bomb Rush Cyberfunk comes from Staff Reptile, the studio answerable for the anti-gravity battling of Deadly League. One among Jet Set Radio’s beloved composers, Hideki Naganuma, is again on music manufacturing. His jazz, hip-hop, and funk fusion meant JSR’s tunes would worm their method into your reminiscence, completely, and the snippets we’ve heard of his new music sound simply pretty much as good. There’s additionally a touch of UK storage within the combine, including to the marginally rebellious vibes.
Anyway, after a current leak of a possible new Jet Set Radio, my appetitie is whet and I am unnaturally hyped. Bomb Rush Cyberfunk will skate onto PC by way of Steam and Nintendo Change on August 18th, adopted by “different platforms” at a later date.
