Somehow we missed that Crash Bandicoot is coming back around, though it’s in a decidedly different kind of game. Crash Team Rumble hits in 2023.
Pursuit of the fruit
In Crash Team Rumble, fans can play as Crash, Dingodile, and a host of other friends and frenemies, each of which has their own distinct power, personality, and playstyle, as they compete across wild and varied arenas in 4v4 team-based online multiplayer action. To lead their squad to victory, players will slide, smash, bump and bash as a team to be the “fur-st” to bank the most Wumpa fruit in their drop-off zone, while simultaneously defending the opponent team’s drop zone. Featuring cross-platform play, Crash Team Rumble will feature tons of strategic gameplay elements that will be sure to turn the tide of scoring in hilarious ways.Activision press release
Looks like the designs and characters from Crash 4 will be carried forward in the series, which is great since Crash 4 was excellent. But it remains to be see if a team-based, online title is something that the fanbase will take to. Then again, Mario Party worked quite well, so you never know.
Either way, Crash Team Rumble will be heading to Xbox and PlayStation consoles some time in 2023.
