Crazy Taxi brings back some memories, and I’m curious to see how the remade version looks and plays. Here’s a few screen shots and character art for now..
SEGA announced today that the HD remake of Crazy Taxi will be available for download worldwide this November. This re-mastered classic will arrive on Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft on November 24 and on the PlayStation Network on November 23 (for America) and November 24 (for Europe and Australia). Players will be able to hurtle off parking garage roofs and barrel through traffic-packed streets for a low fare of 800 Microsoft points or $9.99/£6.29/ €7.99/ AU$ 12.95.
“Crazy Taxi is the second installment in our Dreamcast revival, and we hope this release will prove every bit as nostalgic to fans as Sonic Adventure did last month!” said Haruki Satomi, Vice President of Digital Business at SEGA.
New features in this remake include high-definition 720p graphics presented in a widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio, leaderboards and trophy awards, and two game types to experience – Arcade Mode and Original Mode. Classic features making a comeback include sixteen mini-games that hone taxi-driving skills, huge San Francisco-style hills for plenty of hang time and occasional deep-sea exploration opportunities.
