Rumor: Sony is bringing back Crash Bandicoot


A new rumor suggests that Sony is working to bring Crash Bandicoot back. The series was a massive hit on the original PlayStation, and was one of those games that helped make PlayStation into what it is today.

The rumor comes from toy maker NECA, whose director recently said that Sony will release a Crash Bandicoot game in the near future. NECA toys director Randy Falk recently said in an interview:

“Looking at some of their other titles, they’re looking at bringing Crash Bandicoot back, which is really cool”.

NECA and Sony have been in a partnership for a while, with NECA making toys based on Sony franchises, including Uncharted, God of War, Knack, and others.

The original Crash Bandicoot was released in 1996 on the PlayStation, and was a massive hit. It got a sequel in 1997, and another one in 1998. Over the years, several more games have been released, but none managed to capture the feel and charm of the original series.

    Cool. They should also bring back Destruction Derby…

    this is gonna be like sonic. great back in the day but doesnt translate so well to today’s gamers given how cinematic and non-linear games have gotten. making a crash game the way they used to wont cut it now. they will have to bring something new to the table that works with the already existing formula so it still feels like the crash we love but fits in with modern gaming. honestly i dont think its possible anymore. best case scenario for this ip is the old games are getting remakes with current gen graphics and extra bonus content.

      I don’t think it’s impossible and should be that hard. Super Mario has been using the same formula for years and it still holds up, but I agree for sonic though lol. I enjoy playing with him in smash bros over any sonic game released in the past 10 years.

      Idk, I mean I think people are always looking for something different. Look at all the indie games out there that do well. I would welcome crash back in the traditional format. I think they can still make the game with the traditional feel with more modern gameplay influences. God lets all pray it’s not another sonic…

      Depends on how the translate the series onto new hardware. Nothing saying they’re confined to the exact style of the past. “Bring back” might be a little be too literal in your way of putting it…

    • thedeciderU

      But Sonic The Hedgehog 4 was AWESOME

  • Also sly cooper. Jak and dexter. Rachet and clank

  • Gizmo

    Hell yes. Do that! Exactly that.
