Crash Bandicoot’s Back in a PS4 Remaster (and Skylanders)

Sony certainly had some surprises stocked up for this year’s E3 Press Conference. Nostalgia-divers and platforming nuts heed: Crash Bandicoot is back.

Publisher Activision (who currently own the rights to Crash Bandicoot) confirmed that the first three Crash games will be remastered for the PlayStation 4. Though no footage was shared of the upcoming collection, Activision have confirmed that the game would be released in 2017.

Though the remastered trilogy won’t be coming till next year, it was also revealed during Sony E3 that the bolshy bandicoot will appear this October in the publisher’s new toys-to-life game, Skylanders Imaginators. 

Though the announcement was met with a surge of interest during the event over Twitter, Sony has been dropping hints surrounding a Crash Bandicoot return for quite some time. Between the Crash wanted poster shared by PlayStation Mid-East’s official Twitter, a redesigned poster in Vicarious Visions’ Game Jam photos and NECA Toys director Randy Faulk suggesting that the Bandicoot might be back (via. IGN), Crash fans have experienced something of a rumour-rollercoaster. One that has, incidentally, ended satisfyingly.

The original Crash Bandicoot game was released back in 1996 for the original PlayStation, and celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. The game spawned two sequels – Cortex Strikes Back and Warped in 1997 and 1998. The series continued well into the 2000’s, seeing releases across the Xbox, PlayStation, Gameboy Advance and Nintendo Wii. The remastered Crash Bandicoot collection will release next year for the PlayStation 4.

Charlie is a platforming romantic from England, that still speaks in a fashion that died with the Elizabethan era. Having been gaming since the days of Crash Bandicoot, he champions the Playstation, and is only a little bit embarassed that Super Mario Land keeps spelling his defeat.
