Team Reptile has announced Bomb Rush Cyberfunk is finally launching this summer.
After several delays, the hotly-anticipated Jet Set Radio spiritual successor is launching on August 18th for Windows PC (via Steam) and Nintendo Switch.
The game will come to “other platforms” at a later date, which the developer previously hinted at. These probably include Xbox and PlayStation versions – stay tuned.
Here’s a rundown on the game, plus a new trailer:
Team Reptile brings you Bomb Rush Cyberfunk, 1 second per second of highly advanced funkstyle. In a world from the mind of Dion Koster, where self-styled crews are equipped with personal boostpacks, new heights of graffiti are reached. Start your own cypher and dance, paint, trick, face off with the cops and stake your claim to the extrusions and cavities of a sprawling metropolis in an alternate future set to the musical brainwaves of Hideki Naganuma.
Your boostpack allows you to hit even the most insane spots with ease. Once you are near a graffiti spot you can activate graffiti mode and be suspended in mid-air. Hit all the targets and the sequence you make will determine the piece that shows up! Bigger size spots mean more targets to hit before the timer runs out.
You can string your tricks and graffiti into combos to increase your score. Land a combo and your score will be transformed to boost power. The more stylish you are, the more you can use this boost power to zoom through the city at top speed. Do a crazy enough combo and you’ll go into Bomb Rush Mode, gaining infinite boost power.
- In the game you can choose a character from your crew and explore the three-dimensional streets freely.
- The goal is to bomb and get your name up. Every neighbourhood has many spots to find where you can paint graffiti. Once you get enough REP you can challenge the local crew for the territory.
- Features a unique trick system with grinding, sliding, wallrunning and tricking in the air as well as on the ground.
- You will encounter a lot of weirdos.
