Both have been heavily rumoured in the past, but a video of what appears to be leaked footage of a remake of Persona 3 and a new Jet Set Radio game has made its way online and is currently causing a stir within the community over its legitimacy and implications.
The footage reportedly comes from an internal SEGA meeting in 2021, meaning its more than likely part of a presentation on the company’s future portfolio, or something similar. Those on the side of calling this “leak” legitimate are pointing to part of the video – which shows slices of Sonic Frontiers gameplay that look like target visuals as well as containing enemies cut from the final game – and similarities to an earlier Jet Set Radio leak as proof.
Bloomberg reported early last year that big-budget reboots of both Crazy Taxi and Jet Set Radio were in active development as part of SEGA’s ‘Super Game’ initiative. SEGA announced this particular push a while back as a plan to spin its world-renowned IP both new and old into Fornite-esque platforms with living communities.
The Jet Set Radio footage included in this recent supposed leak bears a distinct similarity to some artwork that formed another part of early reboot rumours, which was unearthed from a SEGA survey back in 2022. You can see all of that in the ResetEra post discussing this new footage.
