Crash Bandicoot is back in Crash Team Rumble, a new multiplayer offering from Toys for Bob that sees the gaming icon square off against other heroes and villains. Here’s everything you need to know about Crash Team Rumble.

After years in the dark, Crash Bandicoot has enjoyed a return to popularity in recent years. His resurgence began with the N. Sane Trilogy of remasters, before Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled and Crash Bandicoot 4 cemented his place as a gaming icon once again.

Fans have even been calling for the orange marsupial to appear in Smash Bros., but they’ll have to settle for Crash Team Rumble – a new multiplayer title announced during The Game Awards 2022.

Is there a Crash Team Rumble release date?

There is no concrete release date for Crash Team Rumble just yet, but the devs have confirmed that it will arrive sometime in 2023.

Sadly, there is no word yet on whether or not it will be an early or late 2023 release, but we’d expect it to avoid the crowded fall/winter period.

Crash Team Rumble gameplay

In a first for the series, Crash Team Rumble pits two teams of four classic characters against one another in a competition to collect the most Wumpa Fruit and deposit it in their bank.

Players will be able to choose their favorite heroes and villains, including Coco, Dingodile, and, of course, Crash himself before doing battle on colorful maps. Each character comes with unique skills and abilities that will help them control the match, claim Wumbpa, and protect their team’s bank.
