The greatest taxi franchise of all time is making its long-awaited return.

Sega Networks, Inc. has announced that Kenji Kanno, creator of the original Crazy Taxi arcade hit, is is helming this reimagined free-to-play version of Crazy Taxi for mobile devices. Crazy Taxi: City Rush will use one-touch controls to make passenger travel as hectic and insane as it can possibly get. Be prepared to whip around corners, swipe between lanes and drive on the sidewalk in this new version of Crazy Taxi.

Crazy Taxi: City Rush was designed exclusively for the iOS and Android platforms. We'll be able to start up the taxi fare sometime later this year, but in the meantime, Sega has announced that the original Crazy Taxi title is currently free to download on the iOS and Android format.
