Sony Could Bring Back Crash Bandicoot And Spyro

/ 2 years ago


At 21 I may not be old enough to remember the really old gaming consoles but I am old enough to have had a PlayStation 1. Anyone that played on the PS1 will have undoubtedly played games like Crash Bandicoot, Rayman and Spyro: these were all classic titles and for anyone around my age these were the bread and butter of childhood gaming. Comments from Sony Computer Entertainment’s CEO Andrew House suggests that classic titles like these could be making a comeback.

In an interview with the Telegraph in the UK Andrew House was posed the following question: Will we see a Crash Bandicoot or Spyro the Dragon revival anytime soon? In response he gave the following answer:

“This is very dangerous ground,” Mr House laughs. “In concept, it is something we’ve been thinking about and discussing, and this is a shift for us. We’ve started to say that maybe there isn’t anything wrong with going back and looking at characters that people still talk about, that were a big part of either their childhood or their youth. I definitely wouldn’t close the door on that.”

By no means is it a clear indication that there will be a comeback on that cards anytime soon, but it certainly seems like the possibility exists which is exciting news for PS1 users of a bygone age.

    I would love for them to bring back Crash Bandicoot but they really need to keep the format.
    If they changed it up too much, it would be more akin to the MoH reboot EA tried
    Spyro didn’t hold much for me but Croc, Abe’s Oddysee and Crash Bandicoot… Oh the hours spent there..

    I liked the old Spyro games, I didn’t enjoy anything after the third one. As for crash I only really played the first one and CTR. I’d LOVE to see a new CTR as Sony’s answer to Mario Kart 8.
