With the amount of franchise characters finding a way onto mobile, it was just about time until one of my all time favourites was roped into the mobile gaming scene; Crash Bandicoot.

investigation by myself and @Motwera

Now this is in no way a confirmed leak as it’s the first we’re hearing of it, but by the looks of it, could very well be possible. According to some leaks via Twitter user JumpButton, we might be looking at a Crash Bandicoot endless runner-style game which would be available for Android and iOS, and developed my King. You know, the guys who made a little game called ‘Candy Crush’? Ever heard of it?
But it all makes sense considering that the Crash Bandicoot license is owned by Activision, who also now owns King. There hasn’t been an official announcement of the game but JumpButton mentions he found several images via Google ads in Brazil, and then searching for it on Facebook. He shared some “proof” but when you click on the link, it sends you to the Google Search page. This probably means the ad listings were pulled down, which gives it a little more authenticity, even if I was very sceptical about the game’s existence.
But then Kotaku also pitched something into the mix, and mentioned they found information about the upcoming title in the form of a game listing. They found the game on a Storemaven listing, which detailed the game and some more promo pictures but that also seems to have disappeared and removed. Looks like Activision are trying to keep this under wraps for now, but hey, it could possibly exist and I think it’s pretty cool. It’s not necessarily going to be a terrible game, just something to do on the go.
What do you guys think? Are you hyped for a mobile Crash Bandicoot or do you think it’s not even going to be worth the time? Let us know in the comments!
