During the latest Nintendo Indie World Showcase, Team Reptile announced the release date for Jet Set Radio inspired game Bomb Rush Cyberfunk. The release date for Bomb Rush Cyberfunk is set for August 18 on Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam. Team Reptile also released a brand-new trailer following the showcase.
In Bomb Rush Cyberfunk, players start their cypher and jet grind across a metropolis set in an alternate future. Players will “dance, paint, trick, and face off” against cops and attempt to earn their keep in the city. Further, a stylish and robust soundtrack composed by Hideki Naganuma (Jet Set Radio, Sonic the Hedgehog, Ryu Ga Gotoku) will be playing throughout the course of the game.
Here’s an overview of Bomb Rush Cyberfunk via its official Steam page:
About Bomb Rush Cyberfunk
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.
- 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 neighborhood 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, wall-running and tricking in the air as well as on the ground.
- You will encounter a lot of weirdos.
About the Graffiti
Your boost pack 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.
About the Tricks
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.
