Crash is back! In Crash’s latest adventure, a rejuvenated Neo Cortex is taking over the world one brain at a time. Cortex and N. Brio devise a new kind of evil: a text-messaging, do-anything device that controls both mutant and bandicoot minds. Armed with his quick wits and lightning agility, Crash must free his friends, the titans, and save the day! Not only does Crash gain the ability to control his enemies when he jacks them, now he can store his favorite monsters in his pocket, upgrade them and utilize their powers when they are most advantageous. Wumpa Island becomes a "free-romping" environment, allowing players to travel and explore through intersecting worlds, with different gameplay options available depending on what creature you've brought along for the ride.
