Sega Wants Reboot Crazy Taxi, Jet Set Radio As Fortnite-Style Hits, Report Says – CNET


Crazy Taxi could return in the coming years.


Sega is working on “big-budget reboots” of classic early 2000s games Crazy Taxi and Jet Set Radio, Bloomberg reported Tuesday. They’re apparently part of the Japanese publisher’s “Super Game” initiative, which is designed to create online, community-centric titles, and it’s aiming to mirror the success of Epic Games’ megahit Fortnite.

Both of these reboots are early in development and could still be canceled, according to Bloomberg. The company has apparently been working on the new Crazy Taxi for more than a year, and it may be released in two or three years.

The reference to Fortnite suggests that these games would be free-to-play, come to multiple platforms and include microtransactions, where you can pay real money for in-game items.

The original Crazy Taxi hit arcades in 1999, before being ported to the Sega Dreamcast in 2000. Jet Set Radio came to the ill-fated console in 2000 as well.

Sega didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
