Crash Bandicoot is back, announced at the PlayStation E3 press event, Activision and PlayStation are bringing back Crash Bandicoot in fully remastered versions of the first three Crash games -- Crash Bandicoot; Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back; and Crash Bandicoot: Warped for PlayStation 4 in 2017.
But if you are wanting to get your hands on Crash sooner, then look for Skylanders Imaginators as he will be guest starring in that game. Available in the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 starter packs at launch, Crash once again voiced by actor Jess Harnell, will maintain his unique and quirky personality. Fans can look forward to his signature spin attack, as well as callbacks to his beloved past, including moves that incorporate exploding crates with 3-2-1 countdowns, wumpa fruit, jetpack attack from high in the air and more. As a Sensei, Crash’s Sky-Chi attack is the ability to use a yo-yo to yank his enemies into a spin attack!
The Crash toy will be playable across all platforms in Skylanders Imaginators – the game where Portal Masters can unleash their imaginations to create an infinite number of unique Skylanders characters.
“For years, we’ve been asked when is Crash returning, and today that question has been answered. Activision is proud to celebrate the iconic character’s 20-year anniversary by bringing him back in ways that will appeal to hardcore fans as well as introduce him to a new generation of gamers,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing, Inc. “We can’t wait for gamers to see Crash bring his unique style and quirky personality to the epic battle against Kaos in Skylanders Imaginators. And next year, we’ll expand on the Crash experience for players with remastered versions of three classic games.”
