If you think back to mid-2020, when we were still in the throes of global lockdowns, you’ll remember that popular mobile game maker King announced Crash Bandicoot: On The Run, an endless runner in the style of Temple Run and many others.
Nine months later, you’d be forgiven for forgetting all about Crash Bandicoot’s mobile title, but King hasn’t and we finally have a release date for the game: March 25.
Pre-registration has been open for a while now (Android | iOS), so you can already sign up for the game, and that will ensure that the title will be available on your mobile when the game comes out. But now we know that we only have to wait a few more weeks until the game is out.
It’s suspicious that we know so little about Crash Bandicoot: On The Run, but King has quite a reputation for producing popular mobile games (ever heard of Candy Crush?), so there’s reason to be optimistic.
We know the game is an ‘endless runner’ type game, a busy genre popularized by Temple Run, in which you avoid obstacles hurtling towards you while collecting currency. There’s said to be different levels of On The Run, and other changes to the endless runner formula.
Still, you’ll be going in as blind as us when you boot up the game on March 25. Let’s hope fans of the series like the title.
