SEGA's New Sapporo Studio Contributing to AAA Titles Like Crazy Taxi PS5 1

SEGA is cooking a new Crazy Taxi game, among several other reboots or revivals. While little information is known about this rebooted arcade driving outing, an interview with its recently established Sapporo studio reveals it’s contributing to the project, which it describes as a AAA title.
