Crash Bandicoot coming to Skylanders Imaginators

Posted on June 13, 2016 by Jason Nason

In perhaps the most unexpected, and at the same time exciting news, Crash Bandicoot is coming to Skylands! Of course Crash Bandicoot has been a longtme sibling game to Spyro the Dragon, on which the entire Skylanders series was based.

Crash will be exclusive to the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 versions of the game.

In this next game, a wormhole has opened in Skylands and the great Aku Aku appears! He has come to announce the once-in-two-decades Synchronization Celebration–a time when all of the worlds align perfectly. All the inhabitants of Wumpa Island are having a party and they want to invite the Skylanders. But with Kaos on a quest to take over Skylands using his army of Doomlanders, the Skylanders must focus on stopping his evil plans. Never one to shy away from danger, the legendary marsupial Crash Bandicoot leaps through the wormhole to join the Skylanders in the ultimate battle against Kaos!

Crash Bandicoot Reboot Possibly Leaked by NECA Toys Director

Crash Bandicoot Reboot

Randy Falk, director of NECA Toys,  may have inadvertently let slip details about a revival of the Crash Bandicoot franchise. This is not too long after Sony teased a return of the old franchise on their Middle Eastern account.  Speaking to youtuber PixelDan, Falk said:

“We’ve got back in with Sony. And looking at some of their other titles…I see they’re bringing Crash Bandicoot back, so there’s some great stuff there.”

Sony has been doing very well this console cycle, with the PS4 easily occupying the spot of best-selling console of the generation.  Perhaps it’s this position that makes them feel comfortable testing out the interest for some of their old franchises. My money would be on some kind of new entry being announced at E3, maybe even earlier. As for how well it will do, it depends. There are a lot of customers for old-style platformers, as several kickstarter successes have proven. However, these kickstarters often have industry legends attached, and many of the people that originally worked on Crash have long since left the studio. The question is if the brand itself is still worth anything. I’m pretty sure we won’t have to wait too long to find out.
