Would Crash Bandicoot have done well on Nintendo Wii?


The idea of having Crash Bandicoot series on the Nintendo Wii is one that is very interesting considering the fact that platform titles stand out more on that console opposed to the Xbox 360 or the PlayStation 3.  The Crash Bandicoot series was very popular back in the late 90’s and early 00’s but started to go downhill as the 2000’s had progressed.   Some people believe that if Crash Bandicoot games featured on the Nintendo Wii or even Gamecube opposed to Xbox consoles back in the early 00’s they would have stood out more as platform titles.  When the Crash Bandicoot series had started off on the original Sony PlayStation console in the late 90’s everyone loved it similar to Spyro the Dragon mainly because the PS1 was brand new during the time.  But after the release of PlayStation 2 the Crash Bandicoot series had started to decline in popularity.


The only times that any of the Crash Bandicoot games were released for Nintendo based console were for the DS and the Game Boy Advance back in the 00’s.  In theory having a game such as Crash Bandicoot for the Nintendo Wii would have been very exciting.  But since the series started to decline in popularity during the 00’s any Crash Bandicoot game that would have been released for the Nintendo Wii could have easily ended up another regular platform title on the Wii since Super Mario is practically the main mascot for Nintendo.  While titles such as Super Mario Galaxy and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess could  easily overshadow any of the Crash Bandicoot games that could have been on the Nintendo Wii it would probably would have stood out more during an era of gaming where first and third person shooter games were mainstream.
