After the raving success of the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and Crash 4, everybody's favourite Bandicoot is enjoying a revival.

These remasters have been PS4 exclusives, so you had to be a PlayStation gamer to enjoy them. Things are changing though, as Crash Bandicoot: On the Run! Will be coming to mobile devices next year!

Here's we know so far about KingOnlineGames' upcoming title!

King publishing the King

King had already revealed that it was working on a new Crash Bandicoot game for mobile back in July. So, this announcement doesn't come as a complete shock, but it is a very welcome one.

Crash Bandicoot was once the mascot of PlayStation, akin to Super Mario at Nintendo and Sonic at SEGA.

King are best known for publishing the incredibly successful Candy Crush series of mobile games, so they have real royal pedigree when it comes to the mobile sphere.

Another platformer in the style of the original PlayStation games is something we've been wanting on mobile devices for some time now.

Next year, it will become a reality, but when exactly is On the Run! released and what devices will it be available on?

Gameplay & devices

Crash Bandicoot: On the Run! will be available for Android and iOS devices in the Spring of 2021. We can't pigeonhole in a date yet, but that does give us a window between March and May next year.

The game is an endless runner, which will also have weapons crafting and base-building on the go. Coco, Fake Crash and Neo Cortex all feature alongside Crash.

You’ll have to defeat Neo Cortex in the Lab, which is one of the franchise’s most notoriously difficult levels.

iOS users can pre-register for the game on the App Store. Android users have been able to pre-register on Google Play since July.

Signing up will mean that you get a push notification when On the Run! is available to download. You'll also gain a mobile-exclusive Blue Hyena Skin from Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled.
