Jet Set Radio Reboot & JSR Remake Reportedly Arriving in 2026

    Twitter user Midori (@MbKKssTBhz5) has commented on the upcoming Jet Set Radio reboot from SEGA. According to her, the new Jet Set Radio title is a reboot and merges elements of Jet Set Radio and Jet Set Radio Future. There are apparently multiple worlds planned that will be playable at launch, and the game is scheduled for a 2026 release. Finally, Midori stated that the JSR reboot will feature a new character with a disability.

    Additionally, Midori has stated that a remake of the original Jet Set Radio is also set to arrive in 2026. This was previously not announced by SEGA, so it is likely the company is holding this announcement for a future date closer to release.

    Midori previously confirmed that the Jet Set Radio title showcased at The Game Awards 2023 would land on next-generation Nintendo hardware. She backed this up once again today, stating, “Every Atlus and Sega remake is also releasing on Switch 2.” Besides her comments on JSR, Midori has an extensive track record with SEGA/Atlus titles. 

    Specifically with Persona, Midori revealed Persona 3 Reload The Answer DLC before datamines occurred. Also, Midori has claimed Persona 2 and Persona 4 remakes are in the works at ATLUS. All of the Persona 3 Reload rumors turned out to be true, including the Expansion Pass and Episode Aigis -The Answer-. In addition, Midori claims that Persona 6 will come to Xbox platforms and Nintendo Switch 2 at launch, and that the game will feature a green motif.

    The new Jet Set Radio title was formally revealed last December after a leak revealed the game early. This was the same leak that showcased Yukari’s attack from Persona 3 Reload, which is available now.
