Two Twitter users – Jump Button and Motwera – may have uncovered an upcoming Crash Bandicoot Mobile game that's being published by King, which would make sense given that they are owned by Activision who currently have the rights to Crash.
The game was uncovered after discovering Facebook ads that were focused on Brazil and South America which mentioned the game using the fairly straightforward name Crash Bandicoot Mobile. It looks to be an endless runner where you'll be able to jump, slide and spin through various levels across Wumpa Island.
From the uncovered description of the game, we've learned that you'll work to foil Crash's long-time foe Dr Neo Cortex from carrying out some nefarious scheme that involves destroying the multiverse. Crash's sister Coco will also be in the game as she's seen in various screenshots and it mentions teaming up with her.
There's also talk of base building mechanics where you can unlock various buildings to create an array of weapons. There will also be the option of growing and harvesting crops that you can produce serums. What purpose both of these things serve I'm not entirely sure but it's a system that points towards the game being a free-to-play title. You can check out the full description in Jump Button's tweet.
CRASH BANDICOOT MOBILE GAME REVEALED
investigation by myself and @Motwera This game can be signed up for NOW it seems. The way the link was found was by searching the name on FB after previously being a fan of the FB page tied to the Brazilian ads.https://t.co/98Qq3jkJCZ pic.twitter.com/AE6bPek4rq — JumpButton (@jumpbuttoncb) February 7, 2020
This wouldn't be Crash Bandicoot's first appearance on mobile either. Back in 2008, we saw Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 3D which - according to our old writer Spanner Spencer - was pretty good. It still remains to be seen if this game will actually come to fruition, though or whether it was just King floating a potential idea.
Given that this falls under leak or rumour territory, there is currently no word on whether or even when this game will come to iOS, Android or both. We'll be sure to keep you updated as we learn more.Enjoy a spot of endless running? Here are 25 of the best auto-runners on Android
