A new Crash Bandicoot game could eventually happen depending on how the upcoming Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy sells, developer Vicarious Visions has revealed.
Speaking during an interview with GameSpot, the Creative Director behind the upcoming N.Sane Trilogy, Dan Tanguay, said that the studio is keen to see the one-time PlayStation mascot make a comeback. However, this is contingent on whether gamers take Crash’s upcoming remastered outing on PlayStation 4 to heart.
Said Tanguay: “Ultimately, we want Crash to return to the mainstream consciousness. We want him to be in everyone’s homes again and to create new fans with this collection and the work we’ve done on Skylanders Imaginators with the Crash Action pack. Would we love to see another Crash game? A new one? Absolutely, but we’ll have to wait and see how this one sells and what the people above me decide.”
This isn’t the only time we’ve heard Vicarious Visions touch base on new Crash Bandicoot titles. Last week, the studio hinted that we could see further remakes in the series, and namechecked the fan-favorite Crash Team Racing as a title that could potentially see a PS4 overhaul. A new Crash Bandicoot game hasn’t been seen since
Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy is due for release exclusively on PS4 on June 30, 2017. The game features remakes of the first three Crash titles, namely Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped. The game will include a unified checkpoint/save system, and includes three Platinum Trophies.
