Sega considers reviving classics like 'Crazy Taxi' and 'Jet Set Radio'

Crazy Taxi could be fun as a multiplayer game. Just a bunch of players frantically trying to deliver people to their destinations while trying not to crash into each other.

Sega: Instructions unclear, Crazy Taxi BR releasing next fall!

Better, trying to deliver fare WHILE trying to take out the competition. You get points based on things like being on time and skill just like the original. Then you add in trying to mess up opponents to beat each others scores.

Or try to steal fares by ramming the other taxis and stealing the customer.

Crazy taxi mixed with Burnout, I'm in

ID: gygzfun

Remind me of Rogue Trip.

Fucking genius! I would love this.

I would do terrible things for a Jet Set Radio revival.

(Or, wishful thinking, just put both soundtracks on Vinyl? Thanks Sega!)

ID: gygaaz7

I don't need one of my kidneys as much as I need JSRF OST on vinyl.

ID: gygbtb8

At this point I wouldn't doubt it as a possibility. I got into vinyl in 2005 and back then stuff like cowboy bebop, evangelion and flcl were considered a lost cause. But I just placed an order for all 3. So I think we have a good shot.

"...the music just turns me on!"

ID: gyg9x6n

Same here man, I still listen to the soundtracks a lot and there's a cool web based radio station with all the music. Bomb Rush Cyberfunk is a new game coming out from the creator so I've got hopes for that

Would be really happy with a full fledged crazy taxi game

ID: gyg6vgb

Ya, ya, ya, ya, ya

ID: gygjsqp

Literally the only reason I played it.

ID: gyh4j3z

Same with Tony Hawk Pro Skater... yes the gameplay was great, but the music made half of the reason why people played it. I doubt a modern game could select a soundtrack that is as good as we had.

It was fun enough, if they do it i would hope it has more content then the original though, maybe untimed gameplay story or something.

ID: gygf5ju

That was the only real issue with the console versions, it was just a direct port of the arcade game which of course wouldn't have an untimed version since it's a quarter inhaler

ID: gygi1lx

Definitely. The original is like one mini-game in a Grand Theft Auto game.

ID: gyg5qs3

That game was so much fun, I'd love a remake as well.

ID: gygc5n8

Free on the Apple App Store if you don’t mind watching an ad before each run

ID: gygloek

I don't see how it would work other than as a $10-$20 downloadable. Unless they plan on adding a TON of unlockables or a story mode or something, I don't see them commanding a $70 price tag.

If the Crazy Taxi revival doesn't have the full Offspring soundtrack, no deal.

ID: gyggedp

Was looking for this comment. Crazy Taxi with other songs feels weird.

ID: gyh70qc

Crazy Taxi and the Offspring are officially responsible for me flooring the gas pedal on the highway anytime All I Want plays…

We need a new jet set radio

Haha check out this Jet Set Radio cosplaying rubber duck I just preordered. Just announced last week, strange timing or no?

Disclaimer: They don't float. They are actually vinyl, not rubber.

ID: gygadqb

Shiiiit I gotta cop one of these, I knew about the Kiryu one but not JSR

They absolutely should - The Dreamcast despite its flaw had some amazing games.

ID: gygajy4

Definitely one of my all time favorite systems just because of the games that released on it. So many great memories!

ID: gygle43

Check out the Redream emulator. Was able to run it on my shitty little laptop. Was the only way i could get my hands on Marvel Vs Capcom 2 again since it's almost impossible to find anywhere else.

Also downloaded Jet Set Radio and was able to relive my teenage years for a few hours. Thought of how i accidentally turned off the dreamcast before it could record my friends Crazy Taxi score so he could rub it in his brothers face and how close i came to being pushed out a second story window. Good times.

So many memories with that Crazy Taxi! I hope they actually make it...

ID: gygjcf9

I play it still on Android, official port by SEGA with original soundtrack and everything. Still holds up decent, but a proper remake on console would be incredible!

Really hope they revive Skies of Arcadia. For anyone who never heard of it, basically Final Fantasy x Black Flag.

ID: gygddws

I had to scroll down way too far to find this comment. Absolutely need Skies of Arcadia to make a comeback!

ID: gygfl8r

Give me the more modern encounter rates and battle speed, and I'm down.

Konami needs to follow their example or just sell off their IPs.

14 : Anonymous2021/05/17 15:13 ID: gygbzpx

Please bring back jet grind radio holy shit

15 : Anonymous2021/05/17 15:19 ID: gygcuko

JSR is one of my favorite games of all time. Even if you've never played it I'd encourage you to check out the soundtrack here

16 : Anonymous2021/05/17 15:09 ID: gygbfrf

Wake me when they consider Skies of Arcadia. Until then, I sleep.

ID: gygunjx

New Skies of Arcadia, new Shining Force and a single player Phantasy Star IV sequel. Make it so Sega.

I mean....I don't understand why they died in the first place place!
