'Crash Bandicoot' for mobile is on its way, according to leak
For many kids growing up in the nineties, the Crash Bandicoot games were a staple of our childhoods. The graphics were (at the time) cutting-edge and the animation was stunning, the gameplay was simple yet addictive, and every level was packed with secrets and challenges.
But now, according to a recent and as-yet-unverified leak, we could well be seeing Crash make a leap from consoles to mobile, with a new mobile game that's (allegedly) in development.
The leak was first uncovered by two Twitter users this week, who go by the handles @jumpbuttoncb and @motwera respectively. Doing a bit of internet sleuthing, the two Crash fans managed to discover a link to sign up for the game through via Facebook.
By clicking on a link, they were taken to a page explaining that the game, Crash Bandicoot Mobile, isn’t ready, but that development is currently ongoing.
The page reads: "Thank you for your interest in this new game! Unfortunately, this game is not yet available but we would appreciate a moment of your time to complete a short survey in order to help improve its development. Your responses will be anonymous and no personal data about you is collected or processed."
Take a look at the trailer for the recent Crash Bandicoot Trilogy remake:
Although this leak is unofficial, it seems to confirm statements made by Activision Blizzard president and chief operating officer Coddy Johnson said, who told Gamespot: A third of our business is on mobile already. We have the largest mobile gaming presence in the west. So we want to build on that leadership position."
He added: "The AAA kinds of games we make are ready to work on mobile because of the improving compute and graphics capability [of the mobile devices."
So there you have it: we'll just have to wait and see whether or not this game really is coming out in the future. Fingers crossed!
