Crash Bandicoot to Return This Fall in Sierra Entertainment's Crash of the Titans.
LOS ANGELES, May 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Sierra Entertainment, a division of Vivendi Games, today announced the upcoming return of everyone's favorite iconoclastic video game hero, Crash Bandicoot, in Crash(R) of the Titans, the latest installment of the best-selling Crash Bandicoot(R) video game franchise. Crash of the Titans is scheduled for release this fall on the Wii(TM) Console, Xbox 360(TM) video game and entertainment system, PlayStation(R)2 computer entertainment system, the Nintendo DS(TM) system, the PSP(R) (PlayStation(R)Portable) system, Game Boy(R) Advance and mobile phones.
In Crash of the Titans, players will fight a nefarious plot hatched by Crash's arch nemeses Neo and Nina Cortex to mutate the local creatures into titanic abominations. Using Crash's legendary mix of outrageous antics and daredevil bravado, players will "hijack" enemies to take control of their action and use their fearsome powers against all manner of enemies.
"Crash Bandicoot -- one of the most popular video game characters of all time -- is back and his all-new adventure brings with it more irreverent humor, family-friendly action, a wild cast of characters and amazing new titanic enemies to discover," said Cindy Cook, chief marketing and strategy officer for Vivendi Games. "Featuring advanced acrobatic combat and incredible co-op multiplayer, Crash of the Titans will be a fun and adventurous title for gamers of all ages."
Key Features in Crash of the Titans include: * "Jack to Attack!" -- Control, play and battle as 15 outrageous, original enemies, including titanic creatures such as Scorporilla, Ratcicle, Magamadon and Shellephant. While in control of a monster or "jacked," players can throw toxic stink bombs, call lightning down from the sky, fire lasers beams from their eyes or even impale enemies with a massive scorpion tail -- use all of the creatures' special abilities to defeat Neo and Nina Cortex. * Hyper-Dynamic Combat -- For the first time ever, Crash now has a powerful acrobatic fighting system that includes punches and flying kicks, multiple attacks and special counter moves. Players can power-up skills to unlock new attacks and blazing combos. * Exploration and Adventure -- With an amazingly expanded move set, Crash can now interact with his world in totally new ways. Players will be able to wall-run, swing from ropes and flip off springboards -- Crash can even toss Aku Aku on the ground to surf, skate, grind and shred. * Wacky Co-Op Action -- At any point in the game, a second player can join in the fun and play as Carbon-Crash to help unleash total chaos! In a totally innovative twist to co-op action gaming, Crash can even jack Carbon-Crash (or vice versa) for some hysterical Crash "jacked"-Crash mayhem.
Crash of the Titans is expected to be available this fall at retail stores worldwide on the Wii(TM), Xbox 360(TM), PlayStation 2 system, Nintendo DS(TM), PSP system, and Game Boy(R) Advance. Vivendi Games Mobile is also making Crash of the Titans available for mobile phones throughout Europe and North America. For more information, please visit http://www.crashbandicoot.com/.
