A Crash Bandicoot redesign could be the possible reason for his absence in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale

Posted by SFilp • January 8, 2013 at 5:58 p.m. PST
PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale fans have been asking for SuperBot to put the infamous Crash Bandicoot in their game. Omar Kendall had mentioned they were in negotiations, however we haven't heard much about it since.

What looks to be a redesign of Crash has been spotted on Vicarious Visions' Facebook page, and this could be the possible reason for the absence of Crash in PlayStation All-Stars.

The SuperBot Twitter had also mentioned that we would have more information on Crash making an appearance in the game, but unfortunately the conversation has since been deleted (you can see it here).

So it's... A Skylanders model? But they are in the works discussing royalties maybe?

Old news, Crash has always been done. I love those games, but let's be real Crash's heyday should stay in the PS1 era.

Crash Bandicoot needed to be darker and edgier.

We got the Dante and Raiden redesigns in PSASBR before their respective redesigned games are even out.
Just saying.
The redesign reasoning doesn't hold to me.

I don't mind this redesign too much. Way better than what they did to him more recently. Looks better than the now demon baby Spyro, anyway.

@Oroku_Saki i thought the same thing but then again the people have become used to those 2 redesigns. apparently not so much for Dante but its been made public for a long time now where this Crash Bandicoot redesign seems to be new to everyone so maybe forcing people to get used to it so soon via PSASBR could be bad for business.

The raiden and Dante redesigns were shown well before psabr came out, this crash redesign hasn't been officially shown publicly

and when he's finally released he won't be square-button, derp-happy like Kratos/Raiden, and nobody will use him.

Crash Bandicoot in new Dante's getup... he's edgy, dark, and a sexual deviant.

Hmmmm... SEXUAL! DEVIANT! CRASH BANDICOOT!

lynx_ID said on January 8, 2013 at 6:49 p.m.

mmm in my opinion I hoped to see Crash on the next smash brothers instead of battle royale, even when he was an icon in the playstation era...

worldfinest22 said on January 8, 2013 at 6:57 p.m.

He looks like an old disney cartoon.

#17
BeatNinja said on January 8, 2013 at 6:58 p.m.

I actually really like this design. ;~; He looks badass.

#18
Ex_Ein said on January 8, 2013 at 7:23 p.m.

If that's real There's 3 designs of crash
1. The original lanky guy
2. The tatted up punk look when activision got there hands on him
3. This sorta chibi-ish look.
Its literally a rights thing as you have to aruge which design you want (which activison will price gouge if superbot wants an alternate costume)

#19
LK said on January 8, 2013 at 7:48 p.m.

I see this redesign is more akin to the Japanese Crash.

#20
hazelnut1112 said on January 8, 2013 at 7:57 p.m.

This new design looks terrible.
But at least it looks better than the Skylanders Spyro, at least he can still be identified as crash and not some abomination.

Jesus Christ how horrifying.

He looks like he walked out of the old Micky Mouse cartoons, walked into the Popey cartoons only to walk back out.

#24
Porkstew said on January 8, 2013 at 9:32 p.m.

The made him more round and cutesy. Do not want.

#25
ya_boy said on January 8, 2013 at 9:57 p.m.

The only reason he is not in the game along with Spyro is because Activsion are greedy scum devils who need to go out of business and loose every game they own the rights to.

Truegamer said on January 8, 2013 at 10:05 p.m.

Crash Bandicoot PS1 Model Costume or No Go for me!

As much as some of you give Activision crap just know that they have done good games in the past, granted those same games are actually pretty glitchy but they're fun enough to where one could ignore them.

#28
TrueGamingGuru said on January 8, 2013 at 10:31 p.m.

For people that were hoping the PS1 style Crash, all I can say is forget about the past and stop living in a fanboy dream that is childish and everyone needs to grow up.

Heck you could also part blame Sony because both Crash & Spyro were dropped from the first party after the contract got expired, which Vivendi Universial still own the rights for both of them now in 2008 the company got merged with Activision.

TrueGamingGuru said on January 8, 2013 at 10:33 p.m.

Come to think of it that poster almost makes me think if there is a possible future Crash game.

era said on January 8, 2013 at 11:27 p.m.

yes, ruin him more

That's the new Crash? LMFAO!!

I'll Never Forgive Naughty Dog :'( Why you sold him? Why? :'(

#33
Th3_JoK3R_J said on January 9, 2013 at 1:30 a.m.

Because their contract with Crash Bandicoot ran up just like the people with Spyro, wasn't really their choice.

Better than the tattoo crap he had.

ZeDudd said on January 9, 2013 at 6:37 a.m.

Wow...

...that design looks awful... O__O

He looks like a cereal-mascott now...
"CRASH BANDIC-O's!!"

Eggyroll said on January 9, 2013 at 6:41 a.m.

Crash didn't need any fixng, the games, maybe, but not the character.

#39
Blinky said on January 9, 2013 at 6:47 a.m.

This design is much better than his appearances in the more recent Crash games. I don't understand what the whining is about.

Edit: I can't say that I'm the biggest fan of his new Popeye forearms. Other than that, Crash looks pretty similar to his days with the PS1. He has seen darker days.

Donald_K_Bahls said on January 9, 2013 at 9:51 a.m.

He looks like he's a high school dropout who sells weed to 8th graders.

Good lord! What have they DONE to him. =_=

It looks like Taz cosplaying as Crash...

#43
MikoRosso said on January 10, 2013 at 9:03 a.m.

He looks like a bum now. first thoughts seeing him were: highschool dropout, alcoholic truck driver, steroids, bum. He's not spazzy, not lovely... this's ruining his character. He was my first game and the reason I got PS1 before 97'. do these designers know what they doing :(

DestinyZX1 said on January 10, 2013 at 6:54 p.m.

Now I'm concerned. Really concerned.

TehLazyOne said on January 11, 2013 at 12:18 a.m.

I would honestly rather have him like that than what he is now... but good god... Cancer/Tumor arm Crash is still pretty awful... *cringe*
