There’s nothing like playing classic games of yesteryear, especially when it comes to SEGA and Nintendo.

During the recent The Game Awards, SEGA announced that it’s bringing back Crazy Taxi, Jet Set Radio, Golden Axe, Shinobi, Streets of Rage, and even more. However, other than being treated to very brief snippets of new gameplay in a recent trailer, details are very vague at this time. This announcement confirms previous SEGA rumours that were circulating in April 2022.

For the SEGA classics that we know are coming back, the official press release details:

  • Crazy Taxi franchise – A whacky, high-octane driving adventure series where players must weave through traffic in an open play environment to deliver passengers to their destinations before time runs out.
  • Golden Axe franchise – A “hack and slash”-style series with close melee combat set in a fantasy world of beasts, swords, and magic.
  • Jet Set Radio franchise – This franchise combines action-packed traversal around vibrant Tokyo-to with skating, and self-expression through graffiti, street culture and rebellious themes.
  • Shinobi franchise – A series that utilises ninja shuriken, ninjutsu, special attacks and more to defeat enemies in a mix of side-scrolling action and challenging environments.
  • Streets of Rage franchise – A “beat ’em up”-style series that pairs fast-paced fist fighting with fresh music set in a lawless urban environment.

We have no release dates for any of the new SEGA games making a comeback, but it’s safe to assume that they will launch for PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.
