Crash Bandicoot’s new Spyro the Dragon skin is disturbing

The most recent season of material for Crash Bandicoot’s mobile video game, Crash Bandicoot: On the Run!, is everything about his platformer mascot in arms, Spyro the Dragon. And while that’s a completely enjoyable crossover that brings 2 previous PlayStation icons together once again, I’m actually agitated by this Spyro skin for Crash that’s part of the video game’s Fight of the Dragons season 3 benefits.

Instead of an appealing “hey, this thing now looks kind of like this other thing!” sensation stimulated by other computer game skins, Crash Bandicoot’s Spyro skin conjures ideas of David Cronenberg’s Brundlefly or Buffalo Expense from The Silence of the Lambs. I can’t get away the idea that Crash is using a Spyro skin match. (It doesn’t assist that Spyro Crash isn’t using his signature jorts.)

Seeing Crash use a Spyro kigurumi or some other cosplay-style outfit would most likely be OKAY. However Crash Bandicoot: On the Run! is likewise the video game that brought Domino’s Pizza’s likewise disturbing mascot, The Noid, back to computer game, so mobile business King is plainly leaning into the making-me-personally-uncomfortable fond memories thing here.

If you’re absolutely great with Spyro the Dragon’s body remolded into Crash’s shape, Season 3: Fight of the Dragons for Crash Bandicoot: On the Run! is occurring today. In addition to this Spyro skin, which seems season-exclusive, it likewise consists of fights versus Dark Spyro and Gnasty Gnorc.

“Thanks” to MinnMax’s Ben Hanson for bringing this to my attention.
