Is this a new design for Crash Bandicoot?

Crash Bandicoot has been dormant for many years. The last mainline entry, Crash: Mind over Mutant, came out in 2008. (Crash Bandicoot, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Hard to tell

Crash needs a reboot. I want to love a new Crash game or at least put the character on Playstation All stars.
Root  +   1000d ago
I would love him in PSAS but he would have to be free...sorry but I'm not paying for the most requested character for that game.

Omar teased him since the day they revealed the game and even when the game went Gold he STILL teased him in interviews....why didn't he just say

"Sorry but we don't have him in the game"

instead of leading us on....they made it seem he and other requested characters were going to be secret characters.

Y_5150  +   1000d ago
Missing the point.
I want Crash to be in the game to show a little bit of good that the character is in today's games. Not a classic that will never make an triumph return. If we see Crash in this game, we will see the return of CRASH! That's what I want, to see Crash again. And I know you'll buy that DLC if it's Crash Bandicoot. Don't lie, your comment tells me that you really want him too.
Root  +   1000d ago
No...you don't know me

I actually stick to my guns unlike most people. If I say I'm not going to buy something I don't

Especialy when it comes to most DLC...

It's either free or I'll be Crash-less...dosen't bother me

If the DLC was someone like Ezio, Agent 47 or Duke Nukem then fair enough I wouldn't mind buying them if I wanted the DLC since they are characters that not many people had requested anyway but when it comes to characters that would of made this game 10 times better, I'd rather it be free.

Ok sorry for my poor judge of character. I see why you would go against DLC, it can sometimes screw us over content wise. Well the article does say it WILL be free so you will mostly be assured that you won't be Crashless when/if it arrives. :)
Derekvinyard13  +   1000d ago
root i agree with you he should be free

They ruined Spyro, in gameplay and design.

(I apologize for not being politically correct enough for you, N4G, but I did not say anything offensive. I feel bad for whoever feels the need to take "offense" to that comment)

Probably because they were still in talks to HAVE these characters in the game?

If they charge for Crash DLC then seriously fuck playstation all stars. Purposely leaving out the most popular mascot for playstation, just no.

Crash and Spyro both deserve comebacks.

Crash went downhill after Activision took over the IP. Till this day I still play the very first game.

Wow if being the number selling and most played game on the PS3 and 360 is called down hill then I do not want to know what you call games like Battle Royal and Alan Wake.

Stop being a hipster and give Activison credit for making Call of Duty the most popular game this gen.
Summons75  +   1000d ago

hipster has nothing to do with anything....Crash went to them and it went to the gutter, spyro....isn't even spyro now, call of duty....copy paste the game, Blizzard they've seen better days. Golden eye remake WAS a reskinned call of duty and let's not begin to talk about that new 007 game lol. It's the truth no matter how much it hurts.

Alan Wake was a great game and so is BAttle Royale. Those companies actually got funding and were given the researches to make great games. What's call of duty done for story lately? Copy every near future military story mush them together then Micheal Bay it? Now let's compare that to Alan Wake.....no comparison.

Activision's first Crash game was Mind over Mutant, released in 2008. The series dropped in quality long before Activision purchased the rights to the franchise.
ZombieNinjaPanda  +   1000d ago

Something being "popular" doesn't make it good in anyway. Otherwise 2Chains would be the greatest "rapper" in the world.

Hipster, you keep using that word, I do not think it means, what you think it means.
animegamingnerd  +   1000d ago
sony needs to have both crash and spyro back
no_more_heroes  +   1000d ago
One of the first things I did after getting my ps3 last month (from 11x2 contest) is download Crash 1 and Spyro 3 ("never owned for myself" and "cd got lost somewhere" respectively). Not a bad substitute while I build my ps3 game library, I'd say.

If this is a new Crash, then I'm not entirely sold on how fat he looks here lol! Will obviously need to see a running game first. If it means a return to form for Crash games, however, then they can make him as chunky as they like!

It will be very hard for ANY new Crash game to live up to the original classics. I think it's best to stay as close to the original character design as possible though as that way more people would at least be willing to give the new game a chance.

it would be nice if they made crash 1,2,3,kart all in hd remastered for ps3 for 39.99. i would buy it!
Root  +   1000d ago
Urgh...what the hell


Seriously the designs get worse and worse

Just sell the IP to Sony, you know they want it and you know we want it.

They keep dumbing the franchises down to appeal to little kids....actually you know what they are probably going to try and do something with Crash like they did with Spyro and Skylanders.


Actually thinking about it for a bit do you think this might of been from the cancelled Crash game.

Or sell it to Nintendo.

Crash has more games on Nintendo hardware, if you count all the portable garbage.
fabod86  +   1000d ago
Are you kidding me? Where were the best Crash ever made? On PSOne!

Edit - And you are also wrong about which company had the most release on.

Root  +   1000d ago
Oh yeah...lets give it to Nintendo so they can also dumb it down for little kids.

Sorry but if it was the Nintendo before the Wii then I probably wouldn't mind as much but ever since the casual audience has been their main focus I just couldn't see them do Crash. It's the reason I wouldn't like the Nintendo of today do a Conker game if they were the ones to buy Rare.

Give it to the developers who made the classic games, the ones which made us fall in love with Crash....NaughtyDog.

@makiman , NO it does not belong to Sony like Mario belongs to Nintendo and Sonic belongs to Sega , that's the fu&(ing problem.

IIRC, I WAS a little kid when I first played Crash on PS1. I had a blast back then and I still enjoy the game. So what's your point?
prototypeknuckles  +   1000d ago
The design looks similar to the original, my only complaint is his giant hands, but its not bad, I like it, now lets see how the game plays thats the big problem at activision.
League_of_Draven  +   1000d ago
Crash isn't back until Naughty Dog makes another Crash Bandicoot game.
Blastoise  +   1000d ago
This REALLY looks like a Spyro Skylanders model. They're both owned by Activision. Crash is gonna be in Skylanders. I'm calling it lol

i agree, especially when you consider the giant hands,and the little platform under him,its gonna piss alot of people off, me included, but we have to wait and see, who knows it may actually be a real crash game.

Crash bandicoot + ND = good old days

Now, activision fucked it up!!
raiden-49  +   1000d ago
wow if so Crash has really let himself go just like Banjo when he heard Microsoft bought Rare

I wouldn't mind if another dev makes a Crash game, just as long as they get input from Naughty Dog and it's a good game. Like Sanzaru games is doing with Sly Cooper!
Cam977  +   1000d ago
Good find! This could be anything from PS:ABR DLC to concept art for an upcoming release.

vork77  +   1000d ago
the new design look cool
ForgottenProphecy  +   1000d ago
They should make "The Crash/Spyro HD Collection" It would contain the first three crash games, and the first three spyro games, and if we are nice enough, also including Crash Team Racing. Maybe just a download voucher for CTR ps1 classic. But the six spyro/crash games would all be redone in full HD with trophy support blah blah blah. Or maybe flat out remakes of them, done from the ground up. I would pay any price for this.

Cajun Chicken  +   1000d ago
That's really weird as it actually looks similar to the design of Charles Zembillas' original concept sketches for the first ever game.

Bear in mind with me here, CONCEPT art.

If Charles is involved again you'll definitely find a return to form for Crash.

PS. He also designed Spyro the Dragon.
stage88  +   1000d ago
I can't see any other devs apart from Naughty Dog being able to save Crash. I think it is a testament to them that to this day i still play Crash 1-3 and Teaming Racing because they are amazingly well made and fun games.

If those pictures in the article is what they are aiming for in the Crash redesign, I say hell no. He looks more of an idiot. Just keep him the way he was back in the good'ol Playstation 1 days.
KingKevo  +   1000d ago
I just felt like I have to comment on this... Anyway, I'd like to see a new crash game, maybe as a downloadable cross-platform game. But I don't know if hes still popular or not.

Crash Bandicoot should go back to Naughty Dog, then well have good Crash games again
