    SEGA announced today that classic video game Crazy Taxi is coming to the iPhone and iPad and posted a very short teaser trailer to promote it. The game is expected to be released sometime in October.

    Our sister-site Touch Arcade wonders about how the controls will work on iOS:

    Great news, but I'm still waiting for Sega's promised port of Jet Set Radio for iOS. They said summer and we're kind of past that...

    Amazing. I've been wanting this ported to iOS since I bought an iPad. The trailer suggests the original soundtrack is back also! Hooray!!

    Awesome news. Never was one for playing video games too much, but I bought a Dreamcast back in the day solely for this game.

    This is the shortest Trailer I've ever seen.

    Great, a 20 years old game!

    Crazy Taxi feels snappier!

    Agreed, what was up with the epileptic-seizure-causing-flashing-zooming-car thing in there? I'm a fan of this game and all, but this trailer didn't tell me anything.

    About 3 seconds of the Sega logo and black screen. About 2 seconds of gameplay. And then 6 seconds of game logo and boring text.

    Sega's marketing department must be so proud.

    I'd rather see them port "Hell Cab". That game was a trip back in the day.

    My guess is that it was a "we don't want to pay song royalties for this" trailer.

    Sega must have made bank off this game. I'm pretty sure it has been ported to nearly every game console since its arcade debut. And now it stands to make even more off of mobile.

    Just think what Nintendo could do simply porting Pokemon Red & Blue and charging $19.99 or so.

    Nintendo games exist to sell Nintendo hardware. Nintendo hardware exists to sell Nintendo games. Both are very profitable. (even the GameCube was)

    Their current stock prices beg to differ.

    What about pricing? It the price is right I'll buy this one on day one. I was a huge fan of the game back when it was available on the Sega Dreamcast.
