If you didn't consider Hover a spiritual sequel to the Dreamcast's best paint-em-up, skate-em-up game already, perhaps Naganuma's involvement will convince you: he composed music not only for the original Jet Set Radio, but the Xbox follow-up Jet Set Radio Future as well. If you've never played either of the Jet Set Radio games, you still may have heard Naganuma's music compositions in Ollie King and Sonic Rush.
"It was love at first sight," Naganuma said regarding his decision to contribute to the game. "Hover has hot graphics and a cool worldview. 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."
Hover's Kickstarter is still going strong: as of writing, it has less than $2,000 to go before the city players will turn into their playground adds a new district and becomes twice as large.
