PlayStation? Xbox 360? Wii U? Fine, now one of my favorite characters is returning and I can't play it. smilie


We don't know for sure if he is returning though (at least at the moment). And if he is (which even if this is fake, he most likely will at some point assuming that Activison hasn't hung up the towel for good), it is too be expected that it would be on new consoles. I know it sucks, but you have to try to keep up (being hypocritical here since I just got the PlayStation 3 and Nintendo 3DS last year). And you can always wait until you have enough money to buy one of the new consoles. No one said that you have to get it right away. Though I suppose that it is a bit strange that there is no Wii version since Skylanders Swap Force is getting a Wii version, but then again, it might just be because the Wii may not be able to handle the game (if there is one at all that is).

For right now, all we can do is speculate and wait.

Skylanders Swap Force is getting a Wii version because they can re use a ton if assets from the first and second Skylanders games, from their Wii versions, so they can make an extra bit of money off of the Wii without too much effort. A good portion of the game is already made for the Wii before they even start that version.

The new Crash game wouldn't be on Wii, as it likely would be built from the ground up.

The Wii version IS being handled by a different company, but I'm guessing Activision is trying to cash in on the people who only own a Wii and don't plan to upgrade before the latest Skylanders comes out. <.<;

Just to add a point, why didn't we get a screen cap? Why a photo? Doesn't that make it seem less plausible? (With a photo, you could hide the low-quality aspects, which you can't by doing a proper screen-cap.

And the "home" Bandicoot page is actually "http://village.crashbandicoot.com/". Surely that would've been updated too?

Except, looking at the site again... Bar at the top, whilst saying "Activision" links you to... www.sierra.com. Wait, what? Sierra? I thought they didn't exist any more. Heck, even that site keeps going down. Again, the last one released was indeed published by Sierra, and the lack of update to the site in this regard is slightly understandable.

This could make the fact they were working on something plausible, but canned it before they finished updating everything. Or whoever they got to update the site, did awful work on it.

However, the site being down COULD point to this being true, what if they're updating it now (unlikely, due to timezones...)


As for the "whois" check? Indeed, it is registered (well, the crashbandicoot.com site as a whole, anyway) by Activision(Addresses etc match up). They've had the registration since 2001, and it goes until 2015. Last update was beginning of Feb, although this is likely to be them renewing the domain name(due to being located between the two dates just mentioned). No idea how long they'd last for. There isn't much to see without paying for, though.

For anyone interested, though:

The Crash Village website is from Mind Over Mutant.

Do we even need a new Crash game in the present day?

I would like a new Crash game too, but I can't really see it being as great as we would want it to be without Naughty Dog developing it. And since they've clearly moved on to bigger things, that just won't happen. Crash is a dead franchise (save a single iOS game recently) and nobody would be able to do it justice at this point.

Forgive my cynicism, but I'd just rather not be disappointed in the same way I was with Skylanders.

Well I thought Traveller's Tales did a decent job with Twinsanity, when you ignore the Executive Meddling that prevented it from potentially being a GREAT game. Thanks Universal/Sierra, is it any wonder you went under and were swallowed by Activision? <.<;

I think Wrath of Cortex was a great game, but it was the last really good one. With that, I think Naughty Dog would be the only team capable of fulfilling the hype that a Crash return would get.

I honestly thought that Crash TwinSanity was the last great Crash Bandicoot game (at least in the main series). I do think that Crash of The Titans and Crash Mind Over Mutant were good games, but not great like the first three Crash Bandicoot games or Crash TwinSanity. But that's just my opinion.

I'd still be excited either way if a new Crash Bandicoot game was made.

I stopped after CTR, because I liked Spyro better anyway, but even then Spyro 5 was very mediocre. Twinsanity was the last good game, imo, but I'll give the newer Crash games credit for the humor. Everything else was bad.

If it's a new NON-mutant game, then great, but I have 4 other games to get this year, so... I won't be too disappointing if things don't go right

I think 'Crash: Tag Team Racing' was the last good Crash game...

Honestly, I entirely disagree.

Naughty Dog came up with the original formula, yes, but their formula was very simple. It's easy to recreate. Wrath of Cortex was proof of that.

It's not a case that Naughty Dog is the only one capable of making a great Crash game. It's just that the last two games were the result of publishers thinking nobody wants an old style Crash game.

Naughty Dog could of been forced to make something like Mind Over Mutant if they were under Activision's watch, for example.

Personally, I wouldn't want an outright recreation of the original trilogy's style (though I'd still get it if it was made). I'd prefer the more open world feeling of Twinsanity, but with kinaesthetics similar to the original trilogy. Or, maybe keep the warp room system, but make the levels open, in a manner similar to Mario 64, or just give the levels a lot of converging and alternate routes to explore, like a Sonic game. In terms of moves though, I'd keep it fairly classic, with a few updates to his favoured moveset.
