Could a Crash Bandicoot reboot be on the way? Potentially, but that hasn’t stopped the Internet from speculating after the iconic character once again popped up on PlayStation Latin America’s social media page. Sony either knows something, or they just enjoy teasing.
Actually the reality is that whoever wrote the source information for this post was likely just overwhelmed with nostalgia, the original post features an old image of Crash brandishing one of his ridiculous weapons. It looks new, but is in fact just a very professionally touched up image from a previous time. If nothing else, the PS4 would definitely make him look good:
However the problem is that he was accompanied with the TBT which of course stands for throwback Thursday, which is pretty self-explanatory. However it does seem to have caused a bit of a stir online, with some fans, and we do mean some, now speculating that Sony could be gearing up for the Bandicoot to ‘Crash’ the PS4 party. This seems unlikely however as although Sony are typically tight-lipped when it comes to their upcoming games, an icon such as Crash would have surely been teased or even leaked by now. Could it be an E3 hype build up?
Again we’re only adding to the speculation, and we would like to take this opportunity to remind you that you should hold onto all reservations until some form of press release or announcement is issued. However, it does at least give us an interesting talking point. More often than not, these classic reboots can often result in failure because of the way the reboot is handled. A lot of the charm in these old games from past generations was in the simplicity of the way they played, so with that in mind we would like to address you, the 4-One Gaming community. If a Crash reboot was to come to PS4 how would you want it be play? Would you prefer a classical approach or would you rather see it brought in the modern world of games with new mechanics such as open world or online functionality?
