Crash Bandicoot® Gives Gamers Fantastic New Adventure in the Latest Installment of the Best-Selling Franchise
Sierra Entertainment, a division of Vivendi Games, is unleashing Crash for the ultimate encounter against his arch-nemeses in Crash of the Titans, the latest installment of the best-selling Crash Bandicoot video game franchise. Crash of the Titans is now available at retail stores nationwide for the Wii™, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, Nintendo DS™ system, PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system, Game Boy® Advance and mobile phones.
In Crash of the Titans, Crash’s arch nemeses, Neo and Nina Cortex, have mutated the creatures of Whumpa Island into horrific abominations. Players must defeat the titanic monsters and put an end to their evil scheme. For the first time ever in a Crash game, our heroic bandicoot now has a powerful acrobatic fighting system and can even “hijack” an enemy to use its immense powers against the other enemies.
“Having sold more than 40 million units worldwide, Crash Bandicoot is one of the most successful video game franchises of all time,” said Pascal Brochier, president, global retail for Vivendi Games. “Crash fans and retailers have eagerly awaited Crash of the Titans, the first multi-platform Crash game to be released since 2005’s Crash Tag Team Racing.”
“Crash is a unique and immensely popular character,” said Al Simone, senior vice president of Global Marketing, Sierra Entertainment. “We’re thrilled to present an exciting new Crash with all new abilities, who still retains the daredevil attitude and striking sense of humor that has made him so popular over the years.”
