Crash Bandicoot is one of my favorite video game characters of all time. The original trilogy of Crash Bandicoot games, which I played for hours on end on my Playstation back when they were originally released, is coming to Nintendo Switch this summer in the N. Sane Trilogy – a remastered compilation I can’t wait to dive into. If you need even more Bandicoot goodness to satiate your marsupial mania, you may want to pick up The Crash Bandicoot Files, a new publication from Dark Horse Books.
The Crash Bandicoot Files is a deluxe hardcover reproduction of Naughty Dog’s original Crash Bandicoot developer’s bible. It offers a rare glimpse into the making of a video game icon, featuring original concept illustrations and a foreword from Crash’s creators to lend insight into how Crash Bandicoot came to be the unforgettable video game character he is today. If you’re a big Crash Bandicoot fan, you’ll enjoy this behind-the-scenes access to the game that started it all.
