Introduction to this site!
Hello!Welcome to the fan site "Crash Bandicoot FANNET"!
I'm the administrator of this website. I apologize if there are any confusing parts due to my poor English.

gazouThis website is operated with the aim of enjoying "Crash Bandicoot" with fans, recording and preserving various information related to "Crash Bandicoot," and spreading the excitement of "Crash Bandicoot" in Japan to the world.

Yes.It's a website originating from Japan!

In Japan, "Crash Bandicoot" is widely known, and there are many passionate fans who draw fan art and master time attacks.
In a large-scale survey targeting readers of the major game magazine Weekly Famitsu, "Crash Bandicoot" was chosen as a character symbolizing PlayStation.
gazouEspecially, the hugely successful "Crash Bandicoot 3" has recorded over 2.5 million copies sold in Japan alone.At that time, it was the first time for a game developed overseas to become such a big hit in Japan. "Crash Bandicoot 3" won the PlayStation Award and remains a record in Japanese gaming history to this day.

Now, would you like to hear about the saddest and loneliest time for Crash fans in Japan?

gazouWhat many Japanese Crash Bandicoot fans are concerned about is not wanting to relive the era from "Crash Of The Titans" to "Crash Bandicoot: Mind over Mutant".In other words, they don't want to go through another period where no new Crash Bandicoot games are released in Japan.

To prevent this from happening again, I want to use this site to convey the passion and feelings of Japanese Crash Bandicoot fans.

Finally, let me introduce a bit about the relationship between "Crash Bandicoot" and Japan. Some important elements in "Crash Bandicoot" were incorporated thanks to Japan, as revealed in interviews with the developers.

gazou1. Coco Bandicoot:
Coco, an indispensable character in the Crash Bandicoot series, was added based on requests from Japan. Her character design incorporates elements reminiscent of Japan, such as thick-soled shoes. You can find this information on our website's web page as well.

gazou2. Fake Crash:
When "Crash Bandicoot" celebrated its 20th anniversary in Japan, a special online program streamed by SCE looked back at Naughty Dog's works. It was revealed that Fake Crash was a character created by Japan. You can also find these messages on our website.

gazou3. Drift System:
During the development of "Crash Team Racing," the drift system was incorporated based on requests from Japan. This system, known as Power Slide, has been passed down as an important element in the series up to the latest installment. You can find episodes from that time on our website.

gazou4. Crash Dance:
The dance moves that Crash excels at originated in Japanese TV commercials. The developers at Naughty Dog liked them so much that they incorporated them into the game starting from "Crash Bandicoot 2." "Good games need good dances." You may have heard this phrase before, but please check it out again on our site.

These are just a few examples. In addition to these, there are also comic adaptations and arcade games (pachinko and pachislot), as well as mobile games released exclusively in Japan.
"Crash Bandicoot" has a deep bond with Japan.

On this website, we have compiled interviews and trivia specifically for the Japanese audience, so please take a look. Since the website is primarily written in Japanese, we recommend accessing it using Google's translation feature.

gazou Through this website, we hope to convey the feelings of Japanese "Crash Bandicoot" fans, even if only a little.

Thank you for reading this far.
