In the urban sprawl of Tokyo-To, gangs of youths known as ‘Rudies’ roam the streets, marking their territories with deft sprays from their graffiti cans. Taking control of Beat, the leader of the GGs, players must tag and grind their way through the city, fighting against rival gangs as well as the local police force. As the GGs recruit more members and gain notoriety, a dark plot begins to emerge involving the shadowy Rokkaku Group and its nefarious owner, Rokkaku Goji. Can Beat, Gum, Tab and the rest of the crew take back Tokyo-To and stop Goji’s evil plans in time?
