As Hover: Revolt of Gamers nears its second stretch goal of $60,000 to add famed SEGA composer Hideki Naganuma, Midgar Studio released a new project update this morning with a message from the Jet Set Radio composer.
“It was love at first sight. Hover has hot graphics and a cool worldview,” Naganuma said. “At first glance, I felt like I’d love to make music for Hover. This feeling’s been a long time since Jet Set Radio Future.”
What’s more, Midgar wrote it will also add a Graffiti Mode in the game. It will be included in what’s called a classic mode that’s a tribute to Jet Set Radio where players must “spray graffitis on some elements of the background during special anti-propaganda missions.”
Secondly, players can perform “special graffiti tricks” during while traveling on the ground or during a wall slide. If successfully performed, the player will tag that area with graffiti, giving you and your allies a speed or jump boost if they travel over that area.
Hover met its funding goal of $38,000 just a few days after its project went live on Kickstarter and met its first stretch goal for additional characters soon after. Naganuma has been very vocal on Twitter in his support for the game and his desire to help compose Hover’s soundtrack.
Hover is planned to be released on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Mac and Linux, with a special Wii U version as a stretch goal.
