Announced earlier today Team Reptile games tweeted a teaser trailer for their latest indie game Bomb Rush Cyberfunk, which appears to be a homage to the hit graffiti-skating game Jet Set Radio. Along with creating the ultimate Jet Set Radio homage, the team at Reptile Games has also recruited the original composer for JSR, Hideki Naganuma, as the primary artist for the game’s soundtrack. The teaser trailer tweeted by Reptile Games features a short and in-depth look at the game’s colorful, funky world and skating mechanics. A description of the game is offered on the official Steam page, “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.”

With an art style resembling Team Reptile’s previous titles, Lethal League and Lethal League Blaze, Bomb Rush Cyberfunk is a new style of game for the developers. In a turn from Team Reptile’s usual fighting game style, Bomb Rush Cyberfunk will allow players to skate and graffiti up an open funky world, with each new stage representing a different time of the day. Similar in style to Jet Set Radio, players can jump, dash, grind and do tricks in order to get as much graffiti up as possible.
Currently, only a single-player mode has been announced for the game, but more information will be released along with an official release date for 2021. No other information about console releases has been released yet, but the game will be releasing sometime in 2021, according to the official Steam page. Users can wishlist Bomb Rush Cyberfunk on Steam right now, and find more information about the game on the official Team Reptile website.
