Crashing the Party at E3: Crash Bandicoot Revealed as Guest Sensei in Skylanders Imaginators during Sony's Conference

Just like last year saw Bowser and Donkey Kong revealed as "Skymiibo" for Skylanders SuperChargers, this year's E3 delivered another ground-breaking reveal...the beloved, Crash Bandicoot is coming to Skylanders Imaginators!

Reports claiming he will only be available in PS3/PS4 Starter Packs or only be playable on PlayStations are FALSE.

Crash Bandicoot will be playable on both Xbox One and Xbox 360 as well as the Nintendo Wii U.

And while he will be available at launch exclusively in Special PS3/PS4 Starter Packs, he should be headed for a stand-alone release later on...

Also of note, the Crash Bandicoot Starter Packs will run you $99.99.  Regular ($74.99) Starter Packs will also be available for both PlayStation consoles.

As seen in the video, they have done a fantastic job integrating Crash as a Skylander and he looks right at home.  Just as Bowser and Donkey Kong had faithful movesets, the same applies to Crash Bandicoot.

Crash mega-fans will also be happy to hear that Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2, and Crash Bandicoot: Warped are all slated for release in 2017 as HD remasters for PS4 Owners.  Those who fall into that camp are also likely to remember that this is the 20th Anniversary for Crash Bandicoot, so the timeline ties in quite well.

I have created two-new polls on the Skylander Club Forum:
-Crash Hype
-Crash vs Bowser & Donkey Kong

Anyone can vote in the polls, so please do and let your sentiments be known!
