Sega has provided some new details about its recently announced reboots of five classic series.
At The Game Awards this month the company said it was developing new entries in the Jet Set Radio, Streets of Rage, Golden Axe, Shinobi and Crazy Taxi series.
In a slide presented during a management meeting last week, Sega provided a few additional details on the upcoming titles, which were described as follows:
- Crazy Taxi: Innovative & Fresh Style Driving Action!
Cheerful feeling of freedom x Fusion of nature and city, Peel out the new stage of Crazy City!
- Jet Set Radio: “Counter-Culture”. Tokyo Street Open World

- Shinobi: Slay the enemies in the silence of the moment

- Golden Axe: Warriors arise to subdue the demons!

Using the slogan “Power the Next Level”, Sega released a debut trailer showing all five games in action earlier this month.
Footage of what appeared to be a Jet Set Radio reboot or remaster was leaked back in April.
It had already been reported last year by Bloomberg that Sega had been working on big-budget reboots of Crazy Taxi and Jet Set Radio, according to its sources.
