Jet Set Radio Future InterviewThe chaps at UK G-spot spoke with Masayoshi Kikuchi and Ryuuta Ueda, the Project Director and Art Director for Jet Set Radio Future. Even though a lot of the info is still unclear about this game, maybe this interview will help shed some light on this sequal to Jet Grind Radio.
GameSpot: The original Jet Set Radio is probably the most unique game around in terms of visual design. What influenced its unique look? How does the team feel about the current proliferation of the cel-shading technique that it pioneered?
Smilebit: The unique look of the title probably came from 1970s Japanese animation, comic magazines from the US, and everything from pop art to package designs of junk food and detergent...you name it. Also, stylish music or movies inspired us for the title.
