Crash Bandicoot Coming to iPhone and iPad in Spring 2021

Crash Bandicoot: On the Run! is coming to iPhone and iPad in the spring of 2021. The endless runner title is being developed by King, makers of the massively popular Candy Crush.

Screen Shot 7
PlayStation-era fans of the franchise can look forward to classic Crash Bandicoot gameplay and iconic characters, locations, and bosses on the smartphones. Players will be able to craft gadgets and weapons, earn rewards, go running with friends in multiplayer mode, and more.

Crash Bandicoot is back, but this time he's on the run and on mobile! That means high-speed battle runs across Wumpa Island to save the multiverse from the evil Dr. Neo Cortex; smash crates, avoid obstacles and run into your favorite characters… Not to mention battling your favorite Crash bosses, earning rewards, base building and weapon crafting – all with a customizable Crash!

Anyone interested in the game can now pre-register on the App Sore. Signed up players will get a notification when the game becomes available for download and an exclusive blue hyena skin at launch.

Jebus.

Why another horrid endless run piece of junk.

iPhone has the power of Quality consoles these days.
Make a PROPER game. Not one of these money grabs low end mobile type things.

Game devs have REALLY disappointed me.
They have been given the hardware in the amazing devices for Apple but they simply refuse to create PROPER Console quality software for them.

I guess it's all down to money
The software houses don't want to spend the time and money to develop proper quality software as they can't work out how to get their money back on game sales.

IT's such a shame :(

..... This is literally the best thing to happen all year.

... Not that that's a particularly high bar, but...... This news might actually make 2020 worth it lol.?

Edit: They'd better not ruin it. Ruin my childhood, and I will hunt you down King, so help me. ?

"Cheaply Made Shovelware Game Leeching on the Crash Bandicoot Franchise Coming to iPhone and iPad in Spring 2021" would have been a more correct headline.
