Crash Bandicoot is having a moment.
The jorts-wearing marsupial was PlayStation’s popular mascot in the late ‘90s, but he hasn’t had a console game since 2008. That’s about to change: Sony revealed at its E3 conference Monday that not only is he coming to Skylanders Imaginators as a PS4-exclusive playable character, but remasters of the first three Crash Bandicoot games are coming to PS4.
Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and Crash Bandicoot: Warped were developed by Naughty Dog between 1996 and 1998. The developer eventually went on to create the best-selling Uncharted series and The Last of Us. (Uncharted 4 even featured a playable level from Crash Bandicoot as a fun easter egg.)
No release date was given for the remastered games, but Skylanders Imaginators launches on Oct. 16.
