Need more Crazy Taxi? SEGA is working on a new installment for the series, titled Crazy Taxi: City Rush. Being that the focus is solely on mobile platforms, SEGA can optimize the experience properly. Kenji Kanno, creator of Crazy Taxi, says that “We are delivering a truly fun game that captures everything our fans love about the original and infusing it with several new features to create an even more fantastic and memorable experience.” The graphics will be much more smooth and vibrant and the mechanics finely tuned.

But as you wait for City Rush to make its way to the Play Store, SEGA is making the original Crazy Taxi more appealing. From now through March 19 (Wednesday), Crazy Taxi can be downloaded for absolutely nothing.

At the Game Developers Conference 2013 today, SEGA dropped some news for fans of the old school fun known as Sonic the Hedgehog. The original version of the game has been remastered to run natively on Android devices and is expected to be available in April for $2.99. Hopefully the combination of sensors in modern smartphones and tablets, combined with some touchscreen controls, will prove to be a powerful combination with a game that did such a good job of portraying a sense of speed. Some gameplay video is expected to be released so that may give us a better idea of what to expect. SEGA also indicated they are working on Sonic 2 and progress is on schedule.
