A New Crash Bandicoot Game Is Coming, But It Isn’t The Sequel We’d Hoped For

A new Crash Bandicoot game has apparently leaked, but it’s not the big console sequel fans have been dreaming for. Although the Crash franchise was dormant for awhile, it saw a resurgence over the last few years with the release of the N. Sane Trilogy, and the well-liked Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled.
Crash Bandicoot gets people excited, and for good reason. The original PlayStation games were very popular, and remain challenging platforming experiences. The series would receive steady main installments until 2008, with Mind Over Mutant. It would be nine years before the N. Sane Trilogy released. With sales doing well for it, Activision might be considering making new games for everyone’s favorite bandicoot. There was also a rumor saying a new Crash game would be coming in 2020, though nothing has come out of that. Perhaps unrelated to the rumor, but it seems a new title is releasing, although it’s not exactly what everyone was looking for.
It appears Crash Bandicoot is getting an endless runner mobile title from King, the developer behind Candy Crush Saga. This was apparently leaked by Twitter users, who say the game was discovered through Facebook ads.
The Crash mobile game apparently had a description on Storemaven, though the link was seemingly taken down. Thankfully, Kotaku managed to screenshot the description, lending credence that the game is real. Check it out below.
With features like “arsenal of weapons” and “powerful serums,” it looks like the Crash mobile title will add a few wrinkles to the formula. If the game utilizes its features well, it could differentiate itself from other endless runner titles available. The game has no release date, as it’s not officially announced.
Although many people are probably disappointed with the news, it’s important to remember endless runners are a popular type of mobile game. A number of video game franchises have running titles, like Super Mario Run and Sonic Dash. Endless and automatic runners are easily downloaded for quick bouts of play. A new Crash Bandicoot mobile game can only help spark interest in a full-blown console sequel. Hopefully 2020 is the year of the Bandicoot.
