SEGA today announced Crazy Taxi: City Rush, the newest game in the company's wild arcade cab driver simulation. Crazy Taxi: City Rush is being developed by Hardlight Studios with the help of Kenji Kanno, the creator of the original Crazy Taxi.
“I’m very excited to finally be able to share with you the first news of Crazy Taxi: City Rush,” Kenji Kanno, executive producer. “We are delivering a truly fun game that captures everything our fans love about the original and infusing it with several new features to create an even more fantastic and memorable experience.”
Crazy Taxi: City Rush is being developed for mobile devices and will be free to download globally later this year. It will launch with a variety of missions and challenges in a campaign that sees you unlock, explore, and master new areas. Using one-touch controls, you simply need to tap and "swipe to change lanes, whip around corners, onto sidewalks, up ramps and into the air." You can also customize your cab to increase its power and visual appeal.
“Creating a new game for our Crazy Taxi fans is extremely rewarding,” said Chris Olson, Senior Vice President of SEGA Networks. “City Rush embodies the spirit of Crazy Taxi with its signature frantic arcade action and crazy stunts and also delivers a new mobile experience with easy one touch controls and social features.”
