Since 2017’s Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy, gaming’s favorite marsupial has been enjoying an incredible comeback. While his latest game, It’s About Time, didn’t set the world on fire in terms of sales, it did help revitalize the franchise and wiped the slate clean of every game that came after Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped. But, before Crash’s big return, Crash had starred in a fun little easter egg in Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
During the game’s first chapter, Nathan Drake is challenged by his wife to play a game to decide who will clean the dishes. It just so happens that the game was the original Crash Bandicoot. Now, developer Toys For Bob has returned the favor in a short they released on the official Crash Bandicoot Twitter account.
In it, fans see Crash relaxing while his sister, Coco, is playing a video game. It just so happens that the game is Uncharted 4, during the falling clock tower sequence. Just as things are getting intense and Crash is scared to see what will happen to Nate, Coco gamer’s up and completes the sequence with no deaths. It’s a fun little nod that even Uncharted 4 co-directer, Neil Druckman, noticed and loved.
Ahahaha. ❤️ https://t.co/mcmKT2V8Gx
