Sometimes we come across certain franchises that cross with GTA V so well that it seems obvious, natural, even. This is not one of those times.
Sure, GTA meshes well with, say, Fast and Furious. As surprising as it may be, it also meshes well with Fallout, as certain mods have proven to us. However, it seems that it does not mesh particularly well with PS2 era classics featuring vaguely anthropomorphic animals who fight against the nefarious schemes of an insane scientist who wants to use an army of mutant animals to take over the world.
Yeah, well, it really isn’t the kind of thing you’d expect to hear in the same sentence as GTA, but here we are. The wonders of modding in GTA V have allowed the series to be granted a limited revival. The comes courtesy of well-known GTA V modder and YouTuber Pinkman, who is also responsible for the Halo 5 and Skyrim trailers being remade within the bounds of Rockstar’s blockbuster.
The Crash Bandicoot series has seen many spin-offs, including an arcade racing game in the vein of Mario Kart, which is featured in this homage. Other elements of the fan-favorite series which appear include the crates which contain the various collectibles one can find in the game. Most prominent of which is the Wumpa fruit, which grants the player and extra life if 100 are collected. The tribal aku-aku masks also played a major role in gameplay, as acquiring three would grant Crash temporary invulnerability, which is shown in the epic climax of the video. Sometimes even disembodied magical masks need a break too, right?
The Crash franchise hasn’t been heard of for several years, though Sony has stated that they’ve been eyeing it for quite a while now, hoping to soon revive the franchise. Do we have any Crash Bandicoot fans among our readers?
