SEGA of America is digging deep into their beloved IP with the announcement of five new games from their legacy franchises.

Revealed at The Game Awards 2023, SEGA confirmed that it is currently developing new games in the Crazy Taxi, Golden Axe, Jet Set Radio, Shinobi and Streets of Rage franchise.

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, self-expression through graffiti, street culture and rebellious themes.
Shinobi franchise – A series that utilizes 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.

SEGA further shared that the titles are currently in different stages of development and are set to release over the next several years. The official titles, release dates and platforms are yet to be confirmed.

“In recent years, Sonic the Hedgehog has forged new paths for SEGA, bringing the franchise to life and reaching new audiences in ways we had only dreamed of in the past. Building off that success, we are digging into our legacy and reimagining several franchises to bring these games to more audiences around the globe,” said Co-COO of SEGA Corporation and CEO of SEGA of America, Shuji Utsumi. “Today’s announcement is just the start of our initiative. First and foremost, our ambition will be to create great games with memorable characters and worlds. We hope fans of all ages will look towards our future with anticipation as we release these projects in the coming years.”
