Crash Bandicoot is back in action with an all-new video game that’s sure to bring gamers’ nostalgia flooding back. Toys For Bob and Activision Publishing have teamed up to bring fans the latest addition to the zany, action-packed franchise, Crash Team Rumble. Set to release on June 20, Crash Team Rumble pins players against one another to battle it out as the colorful characters from the Crash universe. 

The objective of the game is for players to collect the most Wumpa fruits and store them into their team’s drop-off zones. The competition comes from other players attacking the opposing drop-off zone to trot their plans. The game offers a cross-platform play feature, allowing players to battle it out together across different consoles.
