SEGA is reportedly looking to produce "big-budget reboots" of the classic franchises Jet Set Radio and Crazy Taxi.

As reported by Bloomberg (cheers, Gematsu!), the company is aiming to pursue the likes of Fortnite in regards to popularity. The reboots are said to be the first in SEGA's "Super Game" initiative, which the company announced last year as a way to generate recurring revenue sources and cultivate online communities.

Fornite has been a massive success for Epic Games over the course of the last few years. With the title being free-to-play and available across most major platforms, it's easy to see why SEGA would want to emulate its success. Utilising recognisable names like Crazy Taxi and Jet Set Radio seems like a solid way to start.

SEGA is clearly betting big on their so-called "Super Games", having partnered up with Microsoft in 2021 to utilise its state-of-the-art technology to help "promote game development".

We'll keep our expectations in check with this one, but an online Crazy Taxi game sounds pretty cool, if you ask us!
