Crash Bandicoot Reboot In The Works?

Junkie Monkeys: Recent information has shown up concerning our favorite orange bandicoot's future. Is Crash getting a cameo in Skylanders? Or is he getting a completely new reboot of the franchise? (Crash Bandicoot, Next-Gen, PS3, PS4)

Hard to tell

HYPE LEVEL: OVER 9000!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This was my favorite childhood game ans was the first console game I ever played. I really miss crash and would do anything for a reboot to be made. Please Activision do me a favor and actually CODIFY Crash Bandicoot Please!!! Crash is one game I will never get bored of :D

Well surprise surprise, Activision came out on the Sony floor and stated the PS4 is phenomenal and Sony has been so great (**even after all the crap with COD and MS that PS3 gamers put up with) and announced that Bungie's Destiny will launch on PS4 with exclusive content just for PS4 gamers. So maybe, just maybe. Sony will be good and build a great partnership there again like with EA and Ubi...and Crash and Spryo will finally come back home.

Or maybe they will surprise us and say that the 720 will have exclusive DLC for the new crash...Strangers things have happened like Sony getting DLC for Destiny.
Intentions  +   1083d ago
Or maybe, PlayStation gamers are getting exclusive content for destiny, so bungie can set a fanbase in the playstation crowd, since they already have a xbox fanbase.

The series has never been the same after it left Naughty Dog. The first three installments are classic and unless it's going back to it's original creators I don't think a reboot is necessary.
Ultraplayerxp  +   1083d ago
^ You're forgetting CTR there. And yes, Crash isn't the same if it isn't being made by ND.

When Activision came on the floor and started talking about something PS gamers didn't see in like over a decade or something I actually held my breath and thought Crash Bandicoot or Sypro lol.

Do NOT CoD-ify Crash Bandicoot. Reason CoD games get out so quick is because each one barely builds off of the last.

Crash needs his own originality. Crash Racing was awesome, but took time.
SuperSandLegend  +   1083d ago
Sure let's give Crash a UMP and diamond fur camo's. Kidding. If I think I know what you meant by codify, I'm gonna say you want replay value. I do too, but I rather not see a series of copy and paste Crash games. That'd kill me inside.
raytraceme  +   1083d ago
I say codify now but I probably will regret it in the long run. But something like uncharted's style would do good A game every 2 years with a portable release once in a while.
DFresh  +   1083d ago
If it's not made by Naughty Dog then it's not a true Crash Bandicoot game.

Would be awesome if true, Id love a Spyro reboot more though
majiebeast  +   1083d ago
There is no Crash Bandicoot without Andy Gavin(Freelance),Jason Rubin(former president of THQ) and Mark Cerny(Lead architect on ps4 creator for ps4 IP Knack). Its like making a Mario game without Miyamoto or Metal gear without Kojima.

knack will be the new crash bandicoot ;)

Knack might be made by Mark Cerny, but I doubt that will be as loveable as Crash Bandicoot series were. I mean, all the Crash games (made by Naughty Dog) were so popular due to their originality and simplicity.

I'm currently playing "Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back" on my PSP and I can honestly say that I find myself having fun as if I'm playing a current gen AAA game. I remember having as much fun when playing Uncharted 3 online and yet look at the difference in terms of budget and complexity. Moreover, comparing Crash series with Uncharted's campaign (any Uncharted game), the first franchise offered me the same amount of fun (or more) with such little effort. My point is that nowadays is more difficult to produce fun games as it was back in the 90s--which was done without breaking a sweat.

Of course, looking back 15 years ago I can also find equal amount of flaws. So, that doesn't mean that the current gen games suck. I just made an observation. I love any kind of fun and well-made games, regardless of their complexity or the amount of realism of their graphics.
sarshelyam  +   1083d ago
Interesting...Mark Cerny you say? The get over at Sony? Activision cozying up to Sony you say?

Oh wait, you didn't say that? Well I did!

I thought Activision was going to Announce a Crash Bandicoot Reboot at the PlayStation Meeting.
Treezy504  +   1083d ago
Apparently Crash thought so too...

The reboot that we've received leaked information about was canned a few years back. Activision shut down Radical Entertainment (the studio behind the reboot) after Prototype 2 was released. As for Crash Team Racing, it was in development at High Impact Games, and also canned. They used that engine to power a Dreamworks racing game for Activision.
Unztayble  +   1083d ago
Crash looks like Taz in that pic. I'm trying to think what else could be done with a Crash game. Not that they shouldn't make it, but what's gonna be the selling point?
Intentions  +   1083d ago
OMG!, too bad it won't be like the ps1 days :O

I'm worried... People should know that this will likely be shit. It'll be some cash-in / completely missing the point / the usual stuff.
WillGuitarGuy  +   1083d ago
I'm hoping they learned their lesson after seeing the bad response to Crash Of The Titans...
Treezy504  +   1083d ago
Klonoa_Dream_Travel  +   1083d ago
fuck yea. definitely getting this when it comes out if they make it.
arbitor365  +   1083d ago
unless naughty dog is making it, im not too hyped. every single crash game after the PS1 sucked. same with spyro. both these franchises have been handed around to every third rate developer on the block.
WillGuitarGuy  +   1083d ago
That's not true. Crash Twinsanity is probably the most underrated in the series and it represents Crash's character the best. Definitely my favorite next to CB2: Cortex Strikes Back.
arbitor365  +   1083d ago
i guess twinsanity wasnt too bad, especially compared to the PS2 spyro games, but the series quickly jumped the shark after that
pr0t0typeknuckles  +   1083d ago
i would love a new crash but knowing casthivision it will be a meidocre money grab, i mean i would love a crash game that played similar to the originals or twinsanity and mind over mutant wasnt terrible it was mediocre at best but activision has no vision for when it comes to crash.
Trago1337  +   1083d ago
Activision's been messing up Crash's games lately. I wish Sony could buy the rights back, but it is what it is. Here's hoping it's good.
criticalkare  +   1083d ago
Hope so :)
stage88  +   1083d ago
It will be an absolute turd if true. After ND sold the ip it when downhill so so badly.
Kratoscar2008  +   1083d ago
HELL YEAH! Crash better come in good shape.
ISNeko  +   1083d ago
I'm scared everyone wanting a new Crash is going to be as fruitful everyone wanting a FFVII remake, which I don't care about btw.
breakpad  +   1083d ago
No Naughty Dog =no good crash bandicoot game.....if Sony loves the ip and wants to give it a second chance (after the multiplatform hyperfailure) should try to buy it and give it to Naughty Dog.....end of story

It's weird, when Sony start digging up old IPs it's amazing but when Nintendo do it it's pathetic and means they've run out of ideas. Strange community.
stage88  +   1083d ago
Because that's all Nintendo does. Look at their games.

when I read the title and the picture. All I was thinking of was the theme song of the original crash bandicoot.
