Waiting For A Crash Bandicoot Comeback

Waiting For A Crash Bandicoot Comeback

Spyro the Dragon made a comeback this year, co-starring in Activision’s ambitious Skylanders series, but what about Spyro’s PlayStation contemporary, that loud-mouthed anti-Mario called Crash Bandicoot?

Crash hasn’t had a new console game since 2008. He’s fallen off the map, and he’s probably not going to come back as a Skylander. We asked Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg if, now that Spyro’s been re-invented, it’s time for a Crash comeback. His answer is above.


  • I’m betting right now they will do the same thing with Crash as they have just done with Spyro.

    The device is there in place, so they could almost just re-skin the game and make some minor changes so it’s Crash instead of Spyro, make a supporting cast and it’s done!

    This is something I hope doesn’t happen though.

  • As much as I would love a new (Naughty Dog era) Crash game, I won’t hold my breath. It would be great if they returned to the series’ roots (and character designs :P).

  • crash isnt a ‘loud-mouth’, the picture is missing 2 sets of annotations, and the full answer should be in the article, you’ve only given us fractured quotes!

  • “that loud-mouthed anti-Mario called Crash Bandicoot”
    Wait, what?
    Crash never ever spoke in the first 3 games or the spin off Crash racing kart. Coco his sister spoke. Crash never did.
    I think you’re getting confused with Sonic there.

  • I’d like to point out on a tangent, but not completely unrelated note, what happened to crash team racing? As much as spinoffs are generally terrible, I legitimately had an awesome time when I was a kid playing that game. I would spend hours with friends just playing that game. For some reason I remember it much more fondly then mario kart.

  • This actually really pleases me. It sounds as though he wants to find a way to make a good Crash game, not just another crappy sequel.
