Crash Bandicoot revival confirmed by NECA Toys, afterwards denied


Crash Bandicoot was an anthem during the PSX era. The marsupial was treated as the PlayStation mascot and is always interwoven to the Sony history in this market. Crash could come back, at least, some movements suggest that possible revival.

Randy Falk, NECA Toy’s director, gave an interview to PixelDan. Randy spoke about their collaborations with Sony and mentioned Crash Bandicoot when he was enumerating some Sony’s IPs:

“Looking at some of their other titles, I see they’re bringing Crash Bandicoot back.”

Subsequently, a NECA spokesperson marked these comments about Crash as a misunderstood:

“Someone has misunderstood a comment he made. Randy saw a faked fan-made image right before he came to the show and said that if the game were coming back, we’d love to do figures.”

Thanks, GameSpot.

    I don’t buy it, I think Sony contacted him to withdraw his statement.

    Why would someone look at a fake image of crash bandicoot and think that Sony/Activision is bringing Crash Bandicoot figurines back?

    You don’t just look at an image and say “yeah we’re making figurines for that”.

    The figurines they make is something that is official and licensed like he mentions in the video, the fact that he said they are making Crash Bandicoot figurines means that it’s official and licensed.

      Totally agree. There is no room for a misunderstood in that context. He defined the current state of Crash Bandicoot and he was not speaking about a possible situation, was a very concrete statement.
