In Unexpected Crossover, Crash Bandicoot And Coco Play Uncharted
The official Twitter account of PlayStation's favorite marsupial posted a short snippet of Coco and Crash playing Uncharted 4.
Crash Bandicoot's unlikely career renaissance continues unabated. The former mascot's Twitter account posted an amusing video of Crash and his sister Coco playing Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. This is presumably a reference to the fact that Uncharted developer Naughty Dog first became a household name thanks to the Crash series.
While it's nice to see PlayStation mascots enjoying each other's games, this animation is seeded with unfortunate implications regarding the proximity of these game worlds and their canonicity. Is Nathan Drake simply a fictional video game star in the world of Crash Bandicoot? An Easter Egg in Uncharted 4 allows you to play the original Crash Bandicoot in Nate's house, so it would appear that the reverse is true as well.
Thus, we find ourselves in an infinite recursion situation. DeviantArt artist KempferZero illustrates the matter well.
Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time released back in September to positive reviews. "Even more so than playing the N.Sane Trilogy, which literally remade the original Crash games from my youth, playing Crash 4 felt like getting back in touch with the series," wrote Mike Epstein in GameSpot's Crash 4 review. It's an injection of new ideas into now-classic gameplay that surprises and delights, even as it feels like a homecoming. Truly, games like this are why we come running back to long-dormant franchises with open arms.
