Get out your Offspring albums and fuzzy dice, because Sega’s unleashing its arcade-driving game Crazy Taxi on the iPhone and iPad.

In a blog post on Sega’s website, the publisher announced its plans to bring the wild open-world racer to Apple’s lineup of mobile devices. The company released a quick teaser trailer that showed a snippet of gameplay, the iOS App Store logo, and a October release window.

Sega internal developer Hitmaker produced Crazy Taxi for the arcade in 1999. Players must pick up fares and bring them to their destinations as quickly as possible. The wacky racer also became a hit on Sega’s home console the Dreamcast.
