After a soft launch earlier this year, King has officially confirmed Crash Bandicoot: On the Run!, a mobile runner featuring the platforming mascot, is officially on the way for a wider launch on iOS and Android phones. King announced today that On the Run! is currently available for pre-registration on the Google Play store for android phones, and will soon be available to pre-register on iOS as well. Those who pre-register will receive the Blue Hyena Skin from Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled when the game launches. You can check out a trailer for the mobile game below.

Crash and Coco will venture through various levels that harken back to classic Crash regions, like Temple Ruins, Turtle Woods, Bear It, and more, in the new runner game. Levels will include secret paths for players to find, much like any classic Crash experience, and boss battles will see returning villains like Scorporilla, Nitrus Brio, Nina Cortex or Dingodile. [widget path="global/article/imagegallery" parameters="albumSlug=crash-bandicoot-on-the-run-first-screenshots&captions=true"] On the Run! will also feature a base for Crash and Coco, which players can build up, customize, and upgrade bu gathering rewards and ingredients. The runner will also offer asynchronus multiplayer to let players battle one another. Crash and Coco are set to have a busy year, as Toys for Bob's Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time is set to be launched on PS4 and Xbox One on Oct. 2. Toys for Bob recently confirmed Crash 4 won't feature microtransactions, and we got a new look at Crash Bandicoot 4 gameplay.
