London Taxi Announced For Xbox

Data Design Interactive announced today that they have secured the licence to create a driving game based on the Official FX4 London Black Cab. London Taxi will be set in London England, complete with landmarks such as: Trafalgar square, Big Ben, Hyde Park. We're not sure who came up with the concept of racing around London in a black-cab, but it sounds like a sure-hit smash to us.... Er.... Stewart Green MD. DDI, said "This is a great arcade title, that you can just pick up and play, smashing fun, weaving between the traffic, racing against the clock, chase, smash, and crash, the emphasis is on great fun. As developers we have come up with a great playable game, and then chosen the classic Black cab as the ideal vehicle and London as the best environment to race in. It is great to have the chance to write games for gamers, rather than just another film license." *Ed Note: did stewart actually talk to any gamers to see if driving around in an FX4 would make for a great game? The London Taxi game will be based on what Black cabs do best; collecting customers and taking them to famous London destinations within the time limit to get paid. There will be different routes, obstacles and busy traffic to transverse before picking up one of the many paying customers waiting for a lift. London Taxi will feature a realistic map of central London for players to race around. The Official FX4 London Black cab itself is perfectly rendered, and features environment mapping to bring out the high-polished look of the famous London Black Cabs.
