Crash Bandicoot developers want to make movies
crash bandicoot could one day have its own premiere in cinemasas the main developer of the most recent games in the series has expressed interest in bringing the franchise to the big screen.
Meanwhile, fans are eagerly awaiting the release of Crash Team Rumble, a 4v4 multiplayer game that will feature a roster of heroes and villains from the long-running Crash Bandicoot series.
The Crash Bandicoot franchise has changed hands several times since its debut on the original PlayStation, where main character Crash came to be considered an unofficial mascot for Sony’s platform as opposed to Sega’s Sonic the Hedgehog and Nintendo’s Mario.
Crash Bandicoot remained a PlayStation exclusive until 2001, the year Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex was released. This was the first of two main games developed by Traveller’s Tales, after which the franchise was taken over by Radical Entertainment.
Radical developed three Crash Bandicoot titles, which met with a mixed reception from critics. Following this, the franchise went into a six-year hiatus that ended in 2016 with the announcement of the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy.
Toys for Bob, the developer of the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and the upcoming Crash Team Rumble, has expressed interest in a theatrical release of the franchise following the success of The Super Mario Bros. Movie.
Toys for Bob tagged Sony Pictures Animation in the tweet, and some commenters found it ironic since the Crash Bandicoot franchise is owned by Activision, which is in the process of being acquired by Microsoft.
