Crazy Taxi: City Rush announced for iOS & Android
Sega are developing the next game for the Crazy Taxi series on mobile phones in Crazy Taxi: City Rush. The new release is being developed by Hardlight Studios with input from the creator of the original, Kenji Kanno.
“I’m very excited to finally be able to share with you the first news of Crazy Taxi: City Rush,” said 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.”
The above announcement trailer should give some indication of whats in store. Sega state the new release will have “one-touch, intuitive controls” and will take place in a large city sitting, which sounds good enough. You’ll need to swipe the screen to change lanes, turn corners and launch yourself off ramps - here it sounds a little like Sonic Dash though. The game will be F2P afterall, so if its not for you then it doesn't cost anything, but Im hopeful with Kenji Kanno involved. Crazy Taxi: City Rush due on iOS and Android devices later in the year
