October 27, 2020: We now have a release date for Crash Bandicoot: On the Run.
The mobile game publisher, King, has finally revealed when we are likely to see the newest Crash Bandicoot game arrive on mobile. Crash Bandicoot: On the Run is set to release in Spring 2021, and if the App Store listing is anything to go by, March 25 is the likely release date.
We first heard about the new Crash Bandicoot mobile game back in February, when rumours appeared that it was in development by King, the famous publisher of Candy Crush. The game was later confirmed and named as Crash Bandicoot: On the Run, alongside a reveal trailer, and ever since then we’ve been waiting to hear news about release.
Fans of the original Crash Bandicoot games can expect this endless runner to involves sprinting, jumping, sliding, and just generally avoiding obstacles as you complete levels to earn rewards. There’s also set to be boss battles with some of the series most iconic baddies, such as Scorporilla, Nitrus Brio, Nina Cortex, Dingodile, and Fake Crash.
