Media: Crash Bandicoot: Mind Over Mutant Launch Trailer

Every time I see something mention Sackboy as Sony's new PlayStation mascot, I have to laugh a little, in part because I remember when this guy was standing outside of Nintendo of America headquarters, shouting threats at Mario through a bullhorn: So yeah, I kind of wonder how long that will last. Crash's star has really kind of faded since then, but apparently he still makes money. Read More

Nintendo Releases Second-Half Line-Up of Games

In an interesting twist (I guess, maybe they do this all the time, and I never noticed), Nintendo has released their US game line-up for the second half of 2008 and into 2009... to Europe. Some highlights included on the list are Spider-Man: Web of Shadows, Call of Duty World at War, Guitar Hero World Tour, Skate It, Mushroom Men, two Star Wars games, Animal Crossing: City Folk, Mario Super Sluggers, Sonic Unleashed, Ghostbusters, and quite a bit more. Better still, Nintendo says that this is an "incomplete" list, meaning more titles could sneak their way into the lineup. Here's hoping more from the Big N themselves. For the full bill of goods (as it stands), both good and bad, click the jump. Read More

Crash Bandicoot Returning This Autumn to Thwart Evil Text Messages

I remember when the word "extreme" could be used in conjunction with the word "sports" or "Doritos" without any irony. I also remember when "extreme" mascot franchises were the hottest thing since the New Kids on the Block, when Spyro and Crash Bandicoot = PlayStation. In this new age of multiplatform franchises, is there still room for an old-fashioned mascot game? I would say so - who doesn't love a good mascot? - and Sierra would say so too. The company announced today a new Crash Bandicoot game dubbed Crash Bandicoot: Mind Over Mutant due for release this autumn for the Wii, 360, PSP, DS, and PS2. Something of a follow-up to 2007's Crash of the Titans, which found the 'coot "jacking" enemies for their powers, Mind Over Mutant is shaping up to be a real chimera of a game, mixing elements of sandbox games, Pokemon-esque monster collection, and wrapping it all up in some bizarre plot involving...brainwashing text messages? Did I read that PR document right? "Cortex has developed a text-messaging device which controls both mutant and bandicoot minds and it's up to Crash to free his friends and stop the evil genius." A unique premise, if anything. Maybe Radical Entertainment has some satirical subtext here about how technology is destroying our lives...maybe they got Hideo Kojima to moonlight as a scenarist? Hit the jump for more gameplay info. Read More
