Though Sonic Rivals and Sega Genesis Collection didn't sell so well on the PSP--moving just over 26,000 and 8,000 units in the US, respectively, according to NPD--Sega is readying another retro compilation for the platform.

This time around, it's the Crazy Taxi franchise's turn. Today, the company announced that Crazy Taxi: Fare Wars will ship for Sony's portable this summer both in the US and Europe. The game will feature Crazy Taxi and Crazy Taxi 2, as well as new ad hoc multiplayer modes that will allow for both co-op and head-to-head play. The latter mode will see players snatching each other's fares by bumping each other.

"With over 2.7 million games sold to date in the Crazy Taxi franchise, Sega is excited to bring back such a popular series from our vault of classics," said Sega of America marketing VP Scott A. Steinberg. No rating or price for the game was announced.

The original Crazy Taxi debuted in arcades but eventually made it to the Dreamcast, GameCube, PC, and PlayStation 2. Crazy Taxi 2 was released solely for the Dreamcast, while Crazy Taxi 3 was Xbox and PC only. Crazy Taxi: Catch a Ride was released for the Game Boy Advance in 2003.
