Crash Bandicoot to return

New moves, play as Coco, ice level.

Sierra has announced a new instalment in the Crash Bandicoot series is on the way to Wii, Xbox 360, PS2, DS and PSP.

According to the press release Crash Bandicoot: Mind Over Mutant sees our hero returning with "new abilities and his signature bandicoot hilarity", thankfully.

This time Neo Cortex and N. Brio have devised "a text-messaging, do-anything device" which controls both mutant and bandicoot minds. Ah, Gizmondo. The game takes place on Wumpa Island, in what's described as "free-romping" environment. It's got an ice level.

Crash can now control enemies when he jacks them, upgrade them and make use of their powers at appropriate moments. You can also play as Coco for the first time in co-op mode, which apparently should "make the game that much more inviting for girls to pick up and play".

Crash now has dodge and counter moves, and can dig underground to find bonuses. Plus he can climb vertical surfaces and jump from side-to-side to reach new places.

Crash Bandicoot: Mind Over Mutant is out this autumn.
