Jet Set Radio and Crazy Taxi big-budget reboots reportedly in the works

Sega is reportedly working on a big-budget reboot of Crazy Taxi and Jet Radio, two iconic gaming properties that will be the first games in the company’s new supergame strategy.

According to Bloomberg, both projects are still in the early stages and either could be scrapped, although Crazy Taxi reboot has allegedly been in development for more than a year and could be released as late as 2025.

As part of the Super Game program, Sega’s plan is to create AAA-quality games that can be experienced as live services, with cross-platform support, an online presence, and microtransactions that can be promoted through regular events. According to Bloomberg, this approach uses Epic Games’ Fortnite as inspiration and template, and as Sega EVP Shuji Utsumi previously hinted, could be combined with other technologies such as NFTs.

Jet Set Radio became a classic when it first released on Dreamcast consoles in 2000, as the game’s unique cel-shaded design, Tokyo setting, and roller-skating gang involved in the Turf Wars made it stand out at the time.

Crazy Taxi started as an arcade game in 1999, combining reckless driving with a punk rock soundtrack including The Offspring and Bad Religion. After the first game was ported to the Dreamcast in 2000, several Crazy Taxi sequels followed, and Jet Set Radio’s last notable release was an HD remake in 2012.

A spiritual successor called Bomb Rush Cyberfunk is currently in development for PC and Switch.
