Naughty Dog has announced that it is creating an enhanced version of Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex for Microsoft’s Xbox.
"Universal Interactive's decision to ship Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex for Xbox was determined by Crash's consistent and overwhelming popularity worldwide," said Jim Wilson, President of Universal Interactive. "Now a new generation of gamers will have the chance to play Crash on a brand new, powerful system that shows him off to his best advantage."
The new version of crash will see the tenacious little hero again square up to his creator, the evil Dr Neo Cortex, this time in an all-new bump-mapped fur get-up.
"It's exciting for the Xbox gaming community to see the legendary Crash Bandicoot appear on Xbox as our first well established, character-based franchise of 2002," said J Allard, General Manager, Xbox Platform.
The game boasts over 40 hours of gameplay in story mode, offering up five bosses and over 30 levels.
