It’s about to get hot in here! King, a leading interactive entertainment company for the mobile world, today announced that Season 3: Battle of the Dragons for Crash Bandicoot: On the Run! will be launching on June 10, 4am PT. The latest season features the beloved purple dragon Spyro and two of his most notorious enemies, Dark Spyro and Gnasty Gnorc. Crash Bandicoot: On the Run! introduces a whole host of scorching new content with its latest season, that features a new land to explore, new minions to defeat, exclusive rewards and skins to earn, and new bosses to vanquish.
In Season 2, N. Tropy was banished and left open a portal to the Dragon Realm, letting in the dastardly Dark Spyro and Gnasty Gnorc – who have since taken over three Spyro-themed lands. The much loved hero soon followed, but the portal to the Dragon Realm was broken in the process. It’s now up to Crash and Coco to defeat Dark Spyro and Gnasty Gnorc and help Spyro repair the Dragon Portal.
Season 3: Battle of the Dragons adds a 12th land called Upstream, which contains four battle runs, a collection run, one time trial and two challenge runs. Upstream debuted in the original Crash Bandicoot from 1996. In addition to the Dark Spyro and Gnasty Gnorc bosses, players will also be able to battle N. Gin and Koala Kong. Players can also complete new weekly missions to earn trophies, compete on the new seasonal leaderboard and complete the Bandicoot Pass to earn exclusive skins and rewards.
In Crash Bandicoot: On the Run! players run, spin, swipe and smash their way through mysterious lands, defeating the henchmen of Dr. Neo Cortex who has dispatched iconic villains across the multiverse. With the help of his sister Coco, Crash must bash Cortex's minions back to their own dimensions! The game offers an un-fur-gettable gameplay experience, with a variety of running challenges and exciting features that add depth and progression to the game including time trials, collection runs, base building and crafting. The game will also be updated regularly with new cosmetic items, classic and creative new skins, and much more during regular seasonal updates.
The Wumpa Archipelago is vast and fans of the Crash Bandicoot franchise will immediately recognize memorable regions from previous Crash Bandicoot games, such as Temple Ruins, Turtle Woods, The Lost City, The Lab and more. Classic enemies and bosses, including Scorporilla, Nitrus Brio and Fake Crash will try to thwart Crash’s progress in a brand-new adventure that gamers can play on the go.
