Imagine a reality where Jet Set Radio Future got a direct follow up in its lifetime, bringing funky beats to the streets and cel-shaded synapses that never stop firing. That’s what Team Reptile is putting together if this latest trailer for Bomb Rush Cyberfunk is any indication. 

 

 

 

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.

 

Carrying the graffiti-stained soul of its inspiration and all the team learned on Lethal League, it’s a retro-neo-future I want to be a part of. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen the game, but even compared to that teaser there’s even more to catch your eyes and wrinkle your brains. Per its description, the game will arrive in 2022 on “all relevant platforms”.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
