Dreamcast classic headed to handheld.

Sega is bringing its Dreamcast classic Jet Set Radio to PlayStation Vita. The high-definition upgrade has already been announced for PlayStation Network, Xbox LIVE Arcade, and PC.

The PS Vita version will utilize the system’s touch functionality for spraying graffiti and integrate its built-in camera for unannounced purposes. According to Sega, the platform “is a handheld version that loses nothing in the way of content or experience” when compared to its console and PC counterparts.

“The fan reaction to our recent reveal of Jet Set Radio has been incredible!” said Haruki Satomi, Senior Vice President of Digital Business at Sega. “As Jet Set Radio is focused on creativity, the touch capabilities of the PlayStation Vita are proving to be a perfect fit.”

Jet Set Radio for PlayStation Vita will be playable for the first time at E3 next month. View the first set of screenshots at the gallery.

    Vita is just getting better and better, it looks.

    Definitely buying.

    Who buys the same game you can get for the HD consoles and can play in a worthy resolution on your TV on a handheld with a tiny screen for an overall worse presentational package?

    The Vita is pretty much just the 3rd HD console of this generation now, it only gets a bunch of multiplatform titles and hardly any exclusives, what an absolute waste.

      @Cinemario: I wouldn’t be so quick to judge. For one, it provides portability. If I’m playing Jet Set at home and have to hit the train for work, I can take it with me. And two, we’re still so early into its life cycle. I know plenty of people who were calling 3DS a terrible handheld in its early days, but look at it now. Give it some time. Vita’s got a lot coming with Soul Sacrifice, LittleBigPlanet, Persona 4 Golden, Killzone, MGS HD Collection, ZOE HD Collection, BioShock, Assassin’s Creed, Call of Duty, Nippon Ichi’s 20th anniversary game, Gravity Rush, Dragon’s Crown, and whatever else Sony and other publishers have hidden behind the curtains, which I’m sure we’ll see a lot of next month.

      @Cinemario: Me! Its portable and it has some unique functions. That is why I am getting it. Really? Who plays it on a “worthy” resolution? As if the Vita has a poor screen? That is ar ridiculous excuse that is far reaching.

      Hardly any exclusives? They get exclusives plain and simple. You want their whole catalog to be nothing but that? Taking your hatred out the door.

    Oh snap! Great fit for handhelds. Jet Set is really a bite sized game, but incredibly fun :):):)

    I hope they release like Crazy Taxi and such for Vita, those would be amazing fits also.
