There's nothing I love more than finding out that one of my favorite characters from the '90s is making a comeback. At the E3 Press Conference on Monday, Sony announced that the first three Crash Bandicoot games are being remastered for PlayStation 4, and this is clearly incredible news. The announcement was accompanied by the new trailer for Skylanders: Imaginators, which also stars Crash and gets released in October. Understandably, the audience who were lucky enough to attend the E3 Press Conference were elated with the news, and I'm sure you are too. Classic game Crash Bandicoot getting remastered and re-released? Talk about making all of your '90s dreams come true.
In the announcement, a representative for Sony said that Crash Bandicoot will appear first on PlayStation 4 in October 2016, followed by Cortex Strikes Back and Crash Warped. It seems as though 2016 is nostalgia central, and I'm more than a little excited to play remastered versions of some of my favorite video games of all time. The original Crash game, which was released in 1996, marked the first appearance of the character, and his most recent game was 2010's Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 2. Crash is undoubtedly one of the most beloved video game characters of all time, on account of his lively demeanour, iconic walk, and picturesque scenery.
The fact that Crash will appear in Skylanders: Imaginators, alongside the re-release of the classic Crash Bandicoot games, shows just how popular the character is. Following the cancellation of several Crash Bandicoot games in recent years, it's good to know that Sony understand just how beloved everyone's favorite anthropomorphic Bandicoot really is. '90s kids spent hours at a time exploring the Wumpa Islands where Crash resides, and fighting Doctor Neo Cortex, and trying to stop his many attempts at world domination.
