The game’s official Twitter handle named Crash Bandicoot: On the Run was created in May. However, it was noticed immediately after they posted the teaser footage of the game recently.
So far the official handle is following two other crash Bandicoot related accounts on Twitter as well. The two accounts are the official Crash Bandicoot Twitter handle and King, the genius mobile developers behind Candy Crush. Considering how the release of the trailer was timed, the game could be getting a worldwide release on mobile pretty soon.
How will the Gameplay be like?
The game is an endless arcade runner game where you assume the role of a crash, run through the forest through several hurdles and try to evade as much booby traps and other enemies as you can. While doing so, you get to eat some fruits looking like apples on your run.
From the gameplay teaser we saw, the game takes a similar approach with the likes of Subway Surfers and the Jumanji: Run mobile game.
When will Crash Bandicoot mobile release?
Currently, the game is up for pre-registration on Android. King has confirmed that iOS users will also be able to pre-register from the App Store soon.
