Sega’s classic arcade driving franchise, Crazy Taxi, will be getting a new game this year, and from the series creator no less. While that may be cause for celebration for fans of the cult hit games, you might want to hold out on popping the champagne just yet- you see, this game will be releasing for tablets and smartphones, and it will be free to play. Talk about a mood killer.
In any case, series creator Kenji Kanno seems to be excited about this new project. “I’m very excited to finally be able to share with you the first news of Crazy Taxi: City Rush. 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,” he said.
Crazy Taxi will be releasing for iOS and Android phones and tablets later this year. Meanwhile, Sega is celebrating by offering the original Crazy Taxi on iOS and Android for free for a limited time.
