A prominent Sega leaker has revealed some new information about a variety of the company's upcoming titles, including the next Crazy Taxi and Jet Set Radio games, of which there are supposedly more than two in total. Their latest info dump offers some unofficial insight into what Sega fans can expect from the company in the coming years.
A lot of the newly emerged information concerns the classic Sega franchises whose revivals were announced back in December. A brief trailer that debuted at The Game Awards 2023 revealed that Sega is bringing back Crazy Taxi, Golden Axe, Streets of Rage, Jet Set Radio, and Shinobi.
In a series of early February tweets, reliable Sega leaker Midori shared some new information about those titles, in addition to disclosing the existence of several others. One of the most unexpected claims from the new leak is that the Crazy Taxi revival actually incorporates two games: a remake and a reboot with online elements. The one that was showcased at TGA 2023 is said to have been the reboot. At least one of them is targeting a 2027 release, although Midori suggested that both possibly are. The insider also said that the reboot and the rest of Sega's TGA lineup will come to the next Nintendo console, adding to the steadily growing list of leaked Switch 2 games.
On the subject of the new Jet Set Radio game, Midori claimed it is a long way out and currently planned for a 2027 release as well. While some fans of the series might find that purported launch window disappointing, most should be used to waiting by now, not least because the last new entry was released over 20 years ago. Midori described the third Jet Set Radio installment as a reboot that features an original story with both new and returning characters, in addition to claiming the game is being made in Unreal Engine.
The insider also went to state that a Virtua Fighter reboot is in the works, but not at the Like a Dragon developer Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio, which handled the 2021 VF5 remaster. Not much else was shared about the project, with Midori merely stating that the game is meant to feature both single player and multiplayer elements. Asked about the recent Super Monkey Ball trademark that emerged in December, the leaker said that the filing pertains to an Apple Arcade exclusive. They also mentioned that the Golden Axe reboot was initially planned for release in 2023 but was delayed. However, that specific claim was later deleted, casting doubts as to its credibility.
Midori leaked the existence of even more revival projects at Sega just a day prior to this latest info dump. Specifically, the insider said Atlus is currently working on no fewer than three Persona remakes, as well as a remaster of a PS2-era Shin Megami Tensei g
