Fans of Crash Bandicoot might be in luck. Recently spotted shenanigans in a new PlayStation commercial join a pile of mounting evidence suggesting that a new Crash game is on the way.
The advert in question, titled It’s Time to Play, features a procession of high-profile video game mascots interacting with non-video-game humans – with one segment, in a nod to Crash Team Racing, featuring Crash and pals roaring around a car park. Here’s where the mystery lies.
It’s a bit of a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment, but as the mostly familiar karting procession closes in on the camera, a second mask can be seen hovering just behind Coco. Floating masks aren’t, of course, anything new in Crash, but this particular once has not, as far as fans can make out, been featured in a game before.
