    By the way I've only played the PC version of Jet Grind Radio (which has been retitled to it's Japanese name Jet Set Radio)

    Perfect! Then again it also reminds me of Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare

    How so? I haven't played the game yet so I'll want a little bit of explanation as to why.

    I feel it's maybe a little like TWEWY but it's also really unique.

    They all have a punk motif, so I assume that's what makes them so similar

    I think the biggest reason why I think Splatoon has a similar style to both of these games is because they're based in modern japan. Even Splatoon's hub will be based on one of the biggest parts of Modern Japan.

    I think it is definitely similar to Jet Set Radio, and a friend of mine is drawing a TWEWY style Splatoon Inkling for the art contest. So I guess they found that relatable to Splatoon, too!

    Tony Hawk's Pro Skater is the first series that always comes to my mind when I think of "punk" games.

    Thing is Jet Set Radio is based in Modern Japan and would make a lot more sense due to Splatoon's Hub being based on a big part of Modern Tokyo.

    I don't disagree, but I think "punk" isn't the best key word of comparison. It's far too general and subjective.

    Yeah, very punk-esque.

    Yeah, punk is something that seems to be somewhat common in games with an open world.
