The HD re-release of Jet Set Radio has been available on download platforms across Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, and PC for just about a month now. In that time, the game has been met with its fair share of mixed reaction amongst critics, newcomers, and longtime fans alike. One version of the game we’ve been waiting on is the Vita edition, which failed to launch alongside its console brethren.
It looks like the wait just got a little more indefinite. Speaking to VG24/7, a Sega representative revealed that a release date had yet to be decided on for Jet Set Radio on Vita. According to the company, the game is being delayed for an unforeseen amount of time “due to necessary development optimizations.” What does that mean? I have no clue. Perhaps Sega’s attempting to implement Vita-centric features, or maybe the company just hit a rough patch with the port.
Regardless of whether or not Jet Set Radio holds up to today’s standards, it’s a shame that the game isn’t widely available. There’s undoubtedly a group of Vita owners who would love to play the game on the go. Here’s hoping Sega finishes up development of the game on Sony’s handheld device sooner rather than later.
