Sega Networks is bringing back Crazy Taxi, one of the company’s most iconic franchises, exclusively to mobile devices. From Kenji Kanno, the creator of the original Crazy Taxi arcade smash hit and Hardlight Studios, one of SEGA’s top mobile developers, comes a game reimagined for a new generation of mobile gamers. Crazy Taxi: City Rush captures the spirit of the beloved Crazy Taxi series with one-touch, intuitive controls that make for a fun and frantic ride everyone can enjoy. In the Android game, there’s no mission too insane, no stunt too dangerous and no passenger too outrageous…nothing is safe.
Free to download and play on Android devices, Crazy Taxi: City Rush was designed exclusively for mobile and will release globally later this year.
“I’m very excited to finally be able to share with you the first news of Crazy Taxi: City Rush,” said Executive Producer and creator of the arcade original, Kenji Kanno. “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.”
Swipe to quickly change lanes, whip around corners, onto sidewalks and ramps to send your cab soaring through the air. Drive crazy through an all-new big city setting.
Crazy Taxi: City Rush will launch with a wide variety of adrenaline-fueled missions, wild challenges – and unique areas to unlock, explore, and master as you progress through the campaign. Customize your cab to increase its power and visual appeal with a wide variety of over-the-top upgrades. Take your friends for a ride and blaze a trail through the city, sidewalks, and alleyways for special rewards.
“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.”
Crazy Taxi: City Rush has soft launched in limited global regions, with plans for a full global release later this year. More information will be released leading up to the game’s official launch.
