SEGA Forever Release Crazy Taxi Retrospective Video, Running Through the Series’ History

Tuesday, October 20th, 2020

SEGA have released another retrospective via the SEGA Forever account, following up on the style of the previous NiGHTS into Dreams… video that revealed a previously unseen US boxart. This time, it’s all about the Crazy Taxi series!

This one doesn’t have any ground-breaking discoveries from SEGA’s archives, but it does serve as a pretty great way to familiarise yourself with the mainline entries in SEGA’s beloved cab-em-up series. It also provides a good excuse to listen to “All I Want”, though to be fair we never need an ‘excuse’ to listen to that song.

SEGA Forever’s also promised there’s more Retrospectives on the way as part of a series, so we’ll let you know when more go up.

Thursday, October 11th, 2012

Crazy Taxi us now available to download on iOS devices, but what’s more interesting is that the original Bad Religion/The Offspring soundtrack is now back in the game! The original soundtrack was previously missing from recent releases on XBLA/PSN/Steam as well as the PSP re-release Crazy Taxi: Fare Wars.

The game is currently priced at £2.99 on the UK app store. Now SEGA have reacquired the rights for the original soundtrack perhaps they can release a patch for the XBLA/PSN versions so we can all enjoy it? Here’s hoping!

Hatsune Miku Project DIVA: Dreamy Theater Extend Announced

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

As with every Project Diva game released for PSP, a ‘Dreamy Theater’ version is released for PS3. These games use your save data from the PSP versions to allow you to play the songs in high definition with enhanced graphics on your PS3.

SEGA of Japan have just announced that a Dreamy Theater Extend will be released on the Japanese Playstation Store. There is currently no announcement regarding the release date at this time.

The game’s official website has screenshots and a tentative tracklist which you can view by clicking here.

I think it would be safe to say that Dreamy Theater Extend won’t be making it to Western shores as the game requires Project DIVA Extend to play (which is also Japanese exclusive). Sad times for Western Project DIVA fans 🙁
