Earlier this year, it was announced that a Crash Bandicoot game for iOS and Android devices was in development. King, the developer of the game, did not mention when the game would be released at that point in time, but it looks like we now have a timeframe to look forward to and that is in the spring of 2021.
This seems like quite a long wait considering that the game was first announced in July, but we suppose better late than never. The mobile version of Crash Bandicoot will be created in the style of an endless runner kind of game, where gamers will keep running to collect items as well as jumping and sliding to avoid obstacles, so if you’ve ever played an endless runner like Temple Run or Subway Surfers, then the gameplay probably shouldn’t be too alien to you.
However, there will be some differences where gamers will also encounter bosses and also meet iconic characters of the franchise, so if you grew up playing Crash Bandicoot, this could be a somewhat nostalgic throwback to the good old days. Crash Bandicoot: On the Run! will be a free-to-play title, but given King’s history and success with Candy Crush, you can expect to see various in-app purchases.
If you’re interested in getting your hands on the game, you can actually go ahead and pre-order it via the Apple App Store or Google Play where it will automatically download to your mobile device upon release.
