After the announcement of the release of the new Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy last weekend at PlayStation Experience 2016 in Anaheim, California, many fans of the mutant marsupial rejoiced at the footage of the upcoming game. However, there is at least one notable naysayer against the remastered game. One of the producers of the original game is lashing out at the remastered trilogy, going so far as to call it a “Frankenstein-ian effort” and questioning if its even a good idea.
David Siller, one of the lead designers and producers of the original Crash Bandicoot game gave his harsh opinion against the upcoming game in a recent interview with Power Up Gaming. During the interview, he goes on a fairly long rant against Activision, saying they missed an opportunity to update the series and the game was nothing more than “same ole — same ole.” He went on to say that he would’ve made a brand new Crash game instead, one that would have improved on the original game’s formula. He finished off his interview with this anecdote:
“When asked what is your favorite film work, Hitchcock would answer ‘My next one’!”
This isn’t the first time Siller has spoken out against the powers that be when it comes to Crash Bandicoot. He has previously claimed that developer Naughty Dog purposely phased him out of the development of the first game, even though most of the original game mechanics that would be used for the rest of the series were his idea.
Whether or not folks agree with David Siller’s points, many fans are still awaiting the famous orange blur’s return, with the game slated to come to the PlayStation 4 sometime in 2017.
