Never-Before-Seen Renegade Kid-Developed Crash Bandicoot DS Demo Revealed

A few years back, Activision contracted the Mutant Mudds developer to make a Crash Bandicoot demo.

Renegade Kid made a Crash Bandicoot DS demo, called Crash Landed, for Activision sometime around 2008 or 2009, according to a video from an anonymous source close to Activision. (Activision, Crash Bandicoot, Dev, Nintendo DS, Renegade Kid)

Its dead unless Naughty dog and Sony decide to buy the IP. I doubt any studio besides them can do the franchise justice.

yeah because no dev is better than ND /s

Nintendo or Ubisoft Montpellier "makers of Rayman Origins" can easily make a great Crash game maybe even better than the old games

No dev is better than ND at creating Crash games. Why you may ask? BECAUSE ND INVENTED CRASH.

Not really, all it would end up being is Rayman Origins with Crash skins instead.

I don't want 2D Crash I want a full 3D platform game. Even with Rayman I want them to go back to 3D and continue from Rayman 3...Rayman 4

@Riderz , Nintendo invented Metroid , Retro developed Metroid prime.

Don't act like only ND are the ONLY people who can develop a good crash game , lol.

Nintendo would be the best place for Crash to go , but I doubt they want him.

Nintendo and RARE made the best 3D platformers , nuff said.

@j-blaze For heresy against ND,your bones shall be ground to dust and your soul shall be consumed by the fires of mount doomed.jk
Seriously ND made it only they can restore this game back to greatness.

I'm sure other developers could make a decent Crash game.

But not anyone under Activision's heel.
Root  +   966d ago
I'm not saying I wouldn't want them to do another Crash game since ND are the only ones that can do it right BUT Travellers Tales did a pretty good job in Crash Twinsanity...as a kid I found it hilarious, especially Cortex's lines....when he was dressed up as Coco at the start haha

As a kid, I wasn't even aware that Twinsanity was developed by a different studio. I loved that game. It's a pity Traveler's Tales were forced to release the game early... So much planned content was left out. :(

That looked pretty good
Really impressed with what RK was able to develop using NDS hardware.
SilentNegotiator  +   966d ago
Meh. Super Mario 64 DS was more impressive if you ask me.

His face scares me and he runs like he's just **** his pants.

ND are the only devs that made Crash amazing.
-Gespenst-  +   966d ago
He looks like Trash Bandicoot, and his run's all weird.

Still, that could have been awesome. Looked more or less like a classic Crash game with a free roamy sort of thing going on.

Slightly peeved that they literally just used the exact same menu music (like an mp3 ripped from the original game or something), but I suppose they might've messed it up if they'd tried to change it.

May I remind you it's just a demo, not an actual game. Characters look different in demonstrations than the final product due to limitations in spending. This gameplay video is just a concept.

Crash is pretty much the number 1 franchise I want Sony to buy. Spyro (which is never gonna happen after Skylanders) comes close.
chrispseuphoria  +   966d ago
Well Spyro's name isn't even on Skylanders anymore (It's just called Skylanders Giants) so I don't think Activision would mind selling him now.
360ICE  +   966d ago
Well, it was called Skylander's Spyro's Adventure. Aaaaand he is still a Skylander now.
e-p-ayeaH  +   966d ago
Sony get this franchise back and ensure quality for the IP people prefer this over Sly and Cooper.
madmike956  +   966d ago
what happened my old friend? you used to be soo amazing
aPerson  +   966d ago
The above demo was made in less than two weeks. I don't know what some of you were expecting...
