In an update to its official site, Hitmaker recently revealed that West Coast--the stage featured in the arcade and Dreamcast versions of the original Crazy Taxi--will be included in Crazy Taxi 3 for the Xbox. Hitmaker says that the level will play quite differently than it did in the first game because players will now be able to use the crazy jump to access different parts of the level. In addition, the original stage will feature new passengers, including skateboarders and volleyball players. The crew from the original Crazy Taxi--Axel, B.D. Joe, Gena, and Gus--will also be returning.
Crazy Taxi 3 is scheduled for release this summer in Japan. A North American release has yet to be announced.
