Crazy Taxi Out Now For iOS, Coming To Android SoonBy: Zach Walton - October 11, 2012
Sega redefined the teaser earlier this week with an 11 second trailer that only told us that Crazy Taxi was coming to iOS. The teaser also indicated that the original soundtrack from the arcade, which included tracks from The Offspring and Bad Religion, would remain intact. Both of those appear to be the case now that the game is actually out.
Sega announced today that Crazy Taxi is now available for all iOS devices. Players can now take to the street as the world’s best/worst cab driver on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. It’s also available in all territories except for Asia, but it will be arriving there shortly.
Here’s the launch trailer for the iOS version. Thankfully, it’s longer than the original teaser.
It seems that Sega actually ported the Dreamcast version of Crazy Taxi instead of the arcade original. It’s only a good thing as the Dreamcast version included a number of mini-games that extended the gameplay experience beyond the basic game.
In even better news, Sega announced that the game is coming to Android soon. Sega has traditionally been one of the better developers in the Android space, so Crazy Taxi should see a near perfect conversion on the platform.
You can snag Crazy Taxi for your iOS device right now for only $4.99.
