Sega is bringing Jet Set Radio back in a big way, and the remake of the classic Dreamcast title isn’t just coming to XBLA, PSN, PC, and Vita—it’s now also been announced for Android and iOS.

“Jet Set Radio for iOS and Android includes the same slick gameplay, genre-blending soundtrack, and pioneering art style as the other versions alongside new features like OpenFeint and Retina display support and the awesome ability to use pictures taken with your phone or tablet’s camera as in-game graffiti,” says Sega’s press announcement. “Traverse Shibuya terminal on the train, silence the Love Shockers on your lunch break, blast through Benten-cho while boarding a bus and upload achievements to Facebook while riding a ferry; Jet Set Radio will be a dream come true for portable gamers everywhere!”

Other than the fact that the mobile version of the game will be hitting this summer (along with the rest of the versions of Jet Set Radio), Sega released a few screenshots—shots which either show the game running on iOS and Android devices, or which show somebody looking at screenshots of the game on iOS and Android devices.
