Jet Set Radio Grinds Its Way Onto Xbox One Backwards Compatibility


SEGA’s critically acclaimed Jet Set Radio is the latest game to be added to the Xbox One’s backwards compatibility feature, Microsoft has announced. Xbox’s Major Nelson broke the news earlier today on Twitter, along with confirmation that two other titles – MX vs ATV and Texas Hold ‘Em have been added to the service alongside the aforementioned platformer.

Originally released in 2000 for the Dreamcast, SEGA later made available an HD version of Jet Set Radio on the Xbox 360 in 2012. There’ll no doubt be many out there excited to get back on the streets of Tokyo to start grinding rails and spraying graffiti everywhere, but judging by the response on Major Nelson’s announcement, there’s still a certain first-person shooter that many are waiting to see added to the Xbox One that’s long overdue.

Call Of Duty: Black Ops has ranked consistently high on the list of games that fans want to see added to backwards compatibility, but Microsoft seemingly has other ideas. Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption is in a similar position, and has even been hinted to be coming at some point in the near future due to a previous error on Microsoft’s end.

Still waiting for that one specific game to be added to backwards compatibility? Let us know your wants and desires in the comments below.
