At The Game Awards in December, Sega announced reboots for five of its classic properties, with Jet Set Radio and Crazy Taxi probably being the most prominent among them. Details on all the announced titles have been understandably scant in the short time that’s passed since then, though a prominent leaker has now divulged some potential tidbits on both Jet Set and Crazy Taxi.

Twitter user @MbKKssTBhz5 (a.k.a. Midori) – a prominent leaker who has accurately leaked several Sega (specifically, Atlus) announcements – has claimed that the new Jet Set Radio game is set to launch sometime in 2026, while Crazy Taxi is currently scheduled for 2027. On top of that, Midori also claims that both games will also release for Nintendo’s rumoured next-gen console, which is allegedly due out in the second half of this year.

As per the leaker, both are reboots, not remakes (something Sega has officially clarified as well), though interestingly, Midori claims that both remakes and reboots were in the works at Sega for both Jet Set Radio and Crazy Taxi. Whether that’s still the case or if remakes for both properties have been shelved is unclear.

Meanwhile, the leaker also adds that the Jet Set Radio will tell a completely new story, and will feature both new and returning characters, while Crazy Taxi will supposedly feature “online elements” (which would align with what past leaks have claimed). Meanwhile in a separate tweet, they claimed that it’s being developed on Unreal Engine, which isn’t information Sega has officially shared yet.

As officially confirmed by Sega, Jet Set Radio is going to be an open world game, while Crazy Taxi’s setting has been described as a “fusion of nature and city”.

Sega is currently also working on reboots for Golden Axe and Shinobi, while a new 3D Streets of Rage game called Streets of Rage Revolution is also in the works. As per leaks, at least five additional reboot projects that haven’t yet been announced are also in development at Sega.
