Wow...Turned out all the news before were false...

Sega Denies It Has Anything To Do With Crazy Taxi Clone Taxi Chaos



Quote
SEGA : "A game resembling SEGA’s Crazy Taxi is currently being promoted by an external company.
As inaccurately reported in some news, this title and its publisher and developer have no official or unofficial support from SEGA CORPORATION and its international divisions.
We are currently investigating this situation."

Segata Sanshiro carrying a giant Sega Saturn on his back can be seen riding the rocket from his final commercial around the boat section of the 'Race of AGES' track.
It can also be clearly seen above when entering the final lap in first position.

Floating arrow in a driving game



Quote
Believe it or not, but only Sega can put giant floating arrows in racing games.
The massive green pointer in hectic cab sim Crazy Taxi seemed like such a smart idea that the Dreamcast developer filed it as a patent.
This is more than likely the reason that you're stuck with GPS-style map screens in Grand Theft Auto, and the incredibly awkward indicator lights in PS2 crime sim The Getaway.

I figured OutRun was more of a "casual drive" game where the racing elements were second to driving. Which is why there is the flock of birds, mountain scenery, view of the oceaon or the occasional dragon that may show up.

Yes, you're right, the article said the basic concept was that of a driving game, and Yu Suzuki loves driving so much.
The allure here is the sensation of enjoying the beautiful scenery in such a way as to seem more like you’re just driving through it, as opposed to actually racing.

"(Katagiri) Yu Suzuki drove a Ferrari 348, a 355, then next he bought a Lamborghini Diablo 6.0.
He gave me a ride in one of his Ferraris, but I don’t think I got to ride in his Lamborghini.
He gave me a ride in a Jaguar or something too."

Limited Run Games releasing an English package version of the SEGA Astro City Mini





Quote
The Limited Run version of the SEGA Astro City Mini will only be limited to 3,500 units, which will probably make this version sought after in the collectors market compared to the regular Japanese version.
As far as I know, the SEGA Astro City Mini unit included inside the English packaging is exactly the same as the Japanese retail unit.
