Sega Confirms Jet Set Radio & Crazy Taxi Revival With New Games

Streets of Rage & Shinobi Also Returning!

Story Highlights
  • Sega has officially announced new Jet Set Radio and Crazy Taxi games at The Game Awards.
  • Other games like Streets of Rage and Golden Axe have also been confirmed.

Sega has been out of console manufacturing for a while, focusing on its position as a games publisher. This focus includes projects like the Super Game, but the company is also invested in classic IPs.

During The Game Awards 2023, Sega confirmed the revival of multiple IPs, including the popular Jet Set Radio and Crazy Taxi franchises.

Why it matters: This reveal highlights that the Japanese gaming giant is committed to its fanbase, catering to their demands for the best experience.

The likes of Jet Set Radio and Crazy Taxi have not seen new entries in many years.

Despite the fandom’s reverence and appeal of these IPs, Sega has not done much with them. Not too long ago, Bomb Rush Cyberfunk, a title inspired by Jet Set Radio, launched with incredible reviews.

This highlighted the current demand for a new Jet Set Radio title, and it seems Sega has finally listened. The latest trailer shows these classics completely built from the ground up for modern hardware.

This results in incredible visuals, particularly for Jet Set Radio, which has always boasted a unique aesthetic through a cell-shaded art style. Additionally, games like Shinobi, Golden Axe, and Streets of Rage are being revisited.

The company hasn’t clarified whether these games are being remade or new entries for the IPs are in development. Still, for millions of fans, the fact that these franchises are coming back in any capacity will be a cause for celebration.

This trailer shows just a small glimpse of Sega’s future projects.

The company confirms that these classics are now in development, but no release date has been provided. Nonetheless, fans should look forward to more details in the coming months.
