Crash Bandicoot was once a major name in video games, having a massive fanbase and a number of successful titles under his belt. It’s been a while since his last dedicated game, but he still pops up from time to time—most recently receiving several cameos and references in
Uncharted 4, for example—and many fans still hope to see him return to the spotlight. Rumors, teases, and vague hints have fueled this hope over the years, and with E3 almost upon us, it’s the perfect time for a new one to strike—and strike it has, though perhaps not in the way fans would want.
A pair of retailers based in Singapore,
Qisahn and ABXY, have each listed a special version of Skylanders Imaginators called the “Crash” Edition, and it’s sparking all sorts of talk. Alongside the fact that Skylanders‘ publisher Activision was recently confirmed to still own the rights to Crash, this special edition is also labeled as a PlayStation 4 exclusive. Given Crash Bandicoot‘s close history with Sony, many are assuming that this version will come with Crash as an exclusive playable character, much in the way that Nintendo versions of Skylanders: SuperChargers included the exclusive Bowser and Donkey Kong characters.
This could all be a mistake, a mix-up, or a misinterpretation, but the possibility is certainly there for this to be the real deal. Whatever the case, we’ll likely find out next week at E3; Sony’s press conference on Monday would be the perfect place to make an announcement like this. And who knows? We can keep our fingers crossed that something more like the Crash games of yore will show up there as well.
