Yesterday was Crash Bandicoot’s twentieth anniversary, as his first title released for the original PlayStation back on September 9, 1996, and Activision decided to celebrate with a new trailer showing off some Crash gameplay in Skylanders Imaginators. The video has a running counter in the corner, marking twenty different references to Crash’s original titles that show up in the Skylanders incarnation. Can you identify each callback as they appear? Watch the video above to find out!
“Happy 20th Anniversary Crash Bandicoot! Spot the twenty ways we’ve honored Crash’s past in the new Skylanders Imaginators level – Thumpin’ Wumpa Islands. To help, we’ve included a counter. Can you name all twenty?” — Activision
