Deffo think Spyro trilogy or Crash Team Racing.

Only thing is what would they sell Crash Team Racing at?! I mean the 3 crash games combined is 30 in the UK. One Crash Team Racing remake they'd shoot themselved in the foot for asking 30 for it.

EDIT: Perhaps as poster above states, adding in crash bash would be a good shout. Online multiplayer for both games.

Is Crash Bash any good, or is it just A Game With Crash Bandicoot In It?

For CTR I'd prefer a full price sequel/reboot/whatever rather than a remaster.

As others have said though, CTR (in any form) probably wouldn't be done by VV, so they can get to work on Spyro.

Crash Bash was okay when it released, but it has aged quite poorly. There are only few mini games that are just given variations to make the number seem higher, and the main campaign is absolute slog to get 200% clear on.

//To give further context, the game has 10 mini games, but six of them are repeated four times.

Thought it was missing some of the original soundtrack?

It's... ok I guess. It's a game that you can have fun with but far from a great game.

But I'd personally love Spyro more.

We didn't forget about Bash, it's just not very good.

It obviously has to be Spyro.

Crash Bash would be a waste of time honestly, it wasn't even that great back in the day. Same goes for Wrath of Cortex, why bother remaking an inferior clone of Warped? I'd want to see Crash Team Racing, a Spyro trilogy or a new Crash game.

I feel like they could get away with selling Crash Team Racing alone for $30 only because CTR is multiplayer (presumably with online added to a remake) and thus would last quite a bit longer than a single-player game.

Crash Team Racing baby! Sony needs a kart racer, and IMO, it's one of the few titles ever to give Mario Kart a run for its money. Honestly don't know why is was not continued when they made such a good base karting game.

...interesting developments...

man, dont even play with me lol

I love Twinsanity so much despite its flaws. To me its has the tone modern Crash games should take, open areas mixed with classical level progresssion. Its my favorite after the OG trilogy (and like almost tied with the first one in my list too)

You're thinking of either The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night for the GBA or Spider-Man: Web of Shadows for the DS.

I remember seeing some forum posts from one of the developers about how much they poured their heart and souls into those Metroidvania experiences.

I'd like to see them try their hands at Crash 4 if anything. They got everything down pat with N. Sane so I think they're up to the task. Although I've heard rumors going around about the next Crash game being handled by SIEJ (Sony Japan Studio) so who knows what the future holds.

If not that, then remake CTR. CNK almost ALMOST got everything right but it falls off short in a few departments (kart speed for one). The key to CTR's success were the controls so VV has to nail that down if it happens and going by how faithful the controls are in N. Sane, I can imagine the same thing being done here. And maybe add CNK tracks as DLC.

Also take into consideration they made the kart/flying/water racing bits for Skylanders SuperChargers; they can do racing well. If they worked with Naughty Dog (not unlike what happened with N. Sane Trilogy, getting level maps and stuff to help with development), then I feel they could make a damn good modern CTR.

Throw in some of the best CNK tracks and you are golden ;). I don't think Studio Japan is making a new Crash personally. Activision likely wants to have the chance to sell it multiplatform, so after CTR (if that is next) we will likely see the next mainline Crash (if we get one) release on everything. Sony will not want to help out much if that is the case I imagine.

We just gotta see, but Studio Japan has proven with Knack 2 (it looks surprisingly sold and has much more platforming) and past titles (Ape Escape comes to mind) how to make fun 3D platformers :).

Yea, Enter the Dragon Punch I believed confirmed it a year ago when the revival was announced at E3. He pretty much leaked everything that was going to happen at E3 2016 way before it even started.
