Sega could be considering a reboot of Crazy Taxi, Jet set radio, and other classic titles. How exciting is that?!
Today, the SegaSammy investor relations website posted a performance presentation to commemorate the close of the fiscal year. This presentation that Sega is considering a reboot of this classic fan-loved titles like Crazy Taxi.
Crazy Taxi, Jet Set Radio, NiGHTS, Space Channel 5, Panzer Dragoon, and Rez are just a few of the vintage, fan-favorite franchises listed in the previous IP groups segment. At the very least, this indicates that the firm wants to bring some of these titles back to market while still bolstering its active IPs including Yakuza, Persona, and Sonic.
Crazy Taxi, Jet Set Radio,…
Jet Set Radio was first launched in 2000 for the Dreamcast. The target was to skateboard across Tokyo and spray graffiti to create a gang’s name. The series was known for its quirky art style and funky songs. Crazy Taxi, on the other hand, started as an arcade game before being ported to the Dreamcast. Players were given the job of driving a taxi and transporting passengers to their desired locations. The reward, on the other hand, will rise if more tricks were done. It, like JSR, contained a lot of music, including songs by The Offspring and Bad Religion. Crazy Taxi’s most recent game was Crazy Taxi Tycoon, which was released in 2017, and Jet Set Radio Future was released in 2002.
Hitmaker probably had no idea in 1999 that it would do just that for its racing game, which revolved around collecting customers and getting them to their destination as quickly as possible. Crazy Taxi may not seem to be very exciting on paper, but it was a must-have for the Dreamcast thanks to its addictive gameplay that made you and your friends to cause mayhem and break records. Even if you’ve never played the original, you can feel the effect.
