Crash is Back in Another Ginormous Adventure! Crash Bandicoot: Mind over Mutant, developed by Vancouver’s Radical Entertainment, has hit store shelves worldwide and is available on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, Wii™ home video game system, Nintendo DS™, PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system and PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system.
In the deepest Crash adventure yet, Crash: Mind Over Mutant arms players with new features, including the ability not only to control enemies once they are ‘jacked,’ but to store the mutants in Crash’s pocket, upgrade them and utilise their unique powers. Players can also roam through Wumpa Island in a two-player cooperative mode with Crash’s sister Coco.
“Crash Bandicoot is one of the best loved characters in video games – we’re excited to bring him to next-gen and feature co-op play for the first time in this all-new adventure,” said David Pokress, head of marketing for owned IPs, Activision, Inc. “Crash: Mind Over Mutant is a family-friendly title that captures the humour and charm of Crash Bandicoot, along with all his hilarious antics that will keep both kids and parents entertained this holiday season.”
In Crash: Mind Over Mutant, a rejuvenated Neo Cortex is taking over the world one brain at a time! Cortex and N. Brio devise a new kind of evil – a text-messaging, do-anything device that controls both mutant and bandicoot minds. The “free-romping” experience allows players to voyage and explore through intersecting worlds, giving them a new game play experience depending on which mutant Crash stores in his pocket for the ride. Armed with his quick-wits and lightening agility, Crash must free his friends, the titans and save the day!
Key Features Include:
• Mutant in your Pocket! – Not only does Crash gain the ability to control his enemies when he jacks them, now he can store his favorite monsters in his pocket, upgrade them and utilize their powers when they are most advantageous
• “Free-Romping” World Design – Wumpa Island becomes a “free-romping” environment, allowing players to travel and explore through intersecting worlds, with different gameplay options available depending on what creature you’ve brought along for the ride
• Co-Op Play – Your co-op partner is Crash’s sister, Coco, playable for the first time in the cooperative mode. Not only does Coco make the game that much more inviting to pick up and play, she also brings with her a new tactile “treasure hunt” ability
