New Crash Bandicoot game keeps runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin'


Crash goes mobile

Crash is back and he’s putting those red high-top tennies to good use. The next game in the Crash Bandicootseries is evidently a mobile runner.

Evidence of a Crash Bandicootmobile game popped up on Twitter after it was apparently leaked through Facebook ads. It’s said to be developed by King, which is Activision’s mobile studio who’s most famous for making Candy Crush. Here’s the tweet outing the existence of the game:

CRASH BANDICOOT MOBILE GAME REVEALEDinvestigation by myself and @Motwera

This game can be signed up for NOW it seems.

The way the link was found was by searching the name on FB after previously being a fan of the FB page tied to the Brazilian ads.

Kotaku Australia also found a description of the new Crash Bandicootwhich includes: building a base of operations, an arsenal of weapons, growing crops to produce serums, and trip to a space station. None of this sounds like standard fare for a mobile runner. The full summary can be seen in the gallery below.

Whatever this is, Activision hasn’t formally announced it yet. Maybe it’s another stepping stone — like 2017’s N. Sane Trilogy— toward Crash‘s return to prominence. There hasn’t been a proper new 3D platforming-focused Crash Bandicootsince 2008’s Mind Over Mutant. That’s the optimistic line of thinking anyway. You already know the cynical line of thinking.
