I desited to make this topic so that people here could discus about the Crash Bandicoot remastered trilogy that is going to be released on PS4 in 2017.
one of the things that i personaly am wondering about is weather or not Tawna from Crash Bandicoot will be in the remastered Crash Bandicoot. The reason is because for one, she had little to no role in the game other than being the damsel in distress, and really you could just replace her with any random female and the role would not change much, infact one could even replace Tawna with Coco, the only change would be that instead of Crash trying to save his girlfriend, he now would be trying to save his sister, which makes for a better continuity for the games… given how Coco just appeared in Crash Bandicoot 2 and the only story detail we have is that she was created by Nitrus. Brio to help Crash.
Now the second reason im unsure that Tawna will be in the remastered Crash Bandicoot is because of… her design…:
im just going to let this part from her Trivia section of the Crash Bandicoot wiki speak for me:
After Crash Bandicoot, Naughty Dog removed her from the series because they were not happy with her forced redesign, as she did not closely resemble their original intentions. Her removal was also due to complaints from Universal Interactive about her being too inappropriate for a family game and caused to be a sexual theme character for mature audience. According to character designer Charles Zembillas, Sony of Japan also pushed for a more family-friendly ally for Crash during the second game, leading to Coco being conceived.
true, they could redesign her, but like i said, she had a really small role in the plot other than being “the reward” and lets not forget the final part here, namely that in canon, she left Crash for Pinstripe… this guy:
you know… the guy who is the 4th boss in the game… the guy who tried to shoot Crash with a Tommy Gun!!!
im not kidding, thats the canon story reason for why Tawna did not return in the games again, she left Crash for Pinstripe, which kind of makes Crash journey to save her a bit pointless.
But that is what im wondering about with these games, so please give your opinions on these games.
