Crash Bandicoot and Spyro are rumored for new Apple TV+ series

Two new animated shows based on the Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon video game franchises may be coming to Apple TV+ by 2022. However, the rumors have drawn skepticism since their initial report.

This news comes by way of a new report from Buzzfeed, which notes that Apple TV+ has greenlighted a two-season run of The Adventures of Crash Bandicoot. It will reportedly be an animated kids’ comedy that stars Crash and his friends. Peter Hannan and Monique Beatty are producers on the project and are best known for their work on CatDog and Invader Zim, respectively. Season one of The Adventures of Crash Bandicoot is expected to release in September 2021.

As for Spyro, Apple TV+ aims to release Spyro the Dragon’s Guide to Treasure Hunting in 2022. As Buzzfeed reports, it will be a 30-minute animated series that will be “serial in nature as opposed to the three-segment format employed by” the Crash Bandicoot show.

Despite the report, there has been no confirmation from Apple on the matter. It’s worth noting that the rumor comes from Buzzfeed’s contributor section, so there’s a chance it’s inaccurate.

The news of these two shows comes after the release of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and Spyro Reignited Trilogy, both of which feature remakes of the first three games in each series. These two collections sold appreciably and performed well critically.

Following the release of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, Activision and Toys For Bob created the next game in the series, Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time. Earlier this year, Toys For Bob announced that it will be assisting with Warzone development, though Activision told us the studio would still be working on Crash Bandicoot as well.

Despite the positive reception to Spyro Reignited Trilogy, a new numbered entry for modern consoles has yet to be released.

All Baobab Tree locations in Tales of Kenzera
Zau fights a dragon in Tales of Kenzera: Zau.

While it wasn't marketed as being a particularly punishing game, Tales of Kenzera: Zau is by no means easy. You will have plenty of environmental challenges that can instantly sap your life, and the enemies you face -- especially the bosses -- are no slouches. When you first begin, it will only take a couple of bad hits to send Zau to the land of the dead himself. Alongside the Trinkets you can unlock through hidden challenges around the map, there are also Baobab Trees where Zau can stop to reflect on his journey thus far, have a short dialogue with Kalunga, and get a small addition to his health bar. Like everything in the game, these trees aren't prohibitively hidden, but you could easily pass one by and have no idea where it was when trying to backtrack. These are all the Baobab Tree locations so you can max out your health bar.
All Baobab Tree locations
There are six Baobab Trees to find in Tales of Kenzera: Zau and each adds a small segment of health to your total. When you collect them all, you will roughly double your HP bar. Here are each of their locations in the rough order you should naturally find them in. Most can be picked up on your first time through that area.

This one is very hard to miss as it is directly on your critical path. If you do, you can fast travel to the nearby campfire to grab it.

All Fallout games, ranked
The courier in his nuclear gear and holding his gun in Fallout: New Vegas key art.

Who would've thought the post-apocalypse could be such a fun time? The Fallout franchise has taken the idea of a Mad Max-like future and not only made it into a wildly popular game franchise but also a hit TV series. The core franchise has been around since the late '90s, and yet we've had only a handful of mainline entries in the series since it was revived by Bethesda with Fallout 3. With Starfield in the rearview mirror and the next Elder Scrolls title currently being the dev team's focus, it could be close to another decade before we can set foot in the wasteland ourselves once again. What better time, then, to look back at the franchise and rank all the games from best to worst?

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Rumble is as fun to watch as it is to play
Monkeys race one another in Super Monkey Ball: Banana Rumble.

I couldn’t tell you what the last Super Monkey Ball game I played was, but I can still talk your ear off about the series. That’s thanks to the speedrunning community that has formed around the franchise, making it into the most exciting game to watch when it's played at a high level. After spending close to a decade watching old games turned inside and out, I’m ready to finally dig into a new entry for myself.

Thankfully, I’m getting that chance on June 25 when Super Monkey Ball: Banana Rumble launches on Nintendo Switch. The latest entry in Sega’s precise platforming series comes loaded with content, from an adventure mode with 200 stages to multiple 16-player multiplayer modes. That’s all exciting, but my attention was on one question when I sat down to demo all of that last week: How fun will it be to watch players master it?
