A YouTuber creates a video using GTA 5 and Rockstar Editor showing what would happen if Naughty Dog created an open world Crash Bandicoot, and the results are amazing.
Many gamers have been hoping developer Naughty Dog would release a new Crash Bandicoot game since the last major release in the series in 2008. Sadly, those hopes have been left unanswered for the foreseeable future.
Fortunately, YouTuber Pinkman cooked up something that should at least bring a smile to fans of the Crash Bandicoot series. Using Grand Theft Auto 5 and the Rockstar Editor, Pinkman put together an entertaining version of what Crash Bandicoot would look like today.
As viewers can see, the video is really just a montage of Grand Theft Auto 5 moments, where the main player is wearing a Crash Bandicoot mask and runs around smashing things with a baseball bat. But that doesn’t make it any less enjoyable to watch.
Even though the video is short, it shows off some of the most iconic aspects to the Crash Bandicoot series, including the smashable crates, and racing go-cark. At one point, the character acquires an Aku Aku mask, which he uses to run through and blow up numerous police cars.
Unfortunately, the above video is only an entertainment spot, and isn’t a trailer or announcement for a Crash Bandicoot mod in Grand Theft Auto 5. And unfortunately a search online comes up empty for a working Crash Bandicoot mod for the open-world game.
However, that doesn’t mean there’s not some modder out there somewhere hard at work trying to bring the cartoon bandicoot to life through Grand Theft Auto 5 or a similar game. Of course, a better option would be for Naughty Dog to revive the series for PlayStation 4, though the last word from the developer was it’s not happening for a while, if ever.
In recent months, modders have dreamed up all kinds of additions for Grand Theft Auto 5, from Marvel heroes like Iron Man and the Hulk, to Mass Effect Reapers. There are also plenty of wacky additions like players looking like animals to shooting cars from guns instead of bullets. So even though there is not yet a Crash Bandicoot mod, there’s still plenty of other adventures available in the game.
