" Vivendi has announced that Crash Bandicoot has found a home on the Wii, and will be gracing the console at some point in 2007. What Vivendi wouldn’t talk about was the gameplay involved in the next Bandicoot outting. As we all know, Vinvendi is overseeing the Crash Boom Bang project on the DS, a Mario Party style game using Crash Bandicoot characters. A comment was made stating that a party type game would work extremely well on the Wii, but that wasn’t necessarily the shape the next game would take. I eagerly await more info on the next Crash outting, and will keep my fingers crossed for a true next-gen sequel to the platforming series."
Update from IGN Wii:
The rumor started shortly after a Vivendi-held European games summit. Within hours, an overseas website was reporting that Crash Bandicoot would hit Wii sometime in 2007. We called Vivendi for clarification and it turns out that the rumor is false. During a question and answer session, a Vivendi representative was apparently asked about next generation development and replied loosely that the publisher was looking into all consoles. The rumor snowballed from there. A Vivendi spokesperson flatly denied the Crash Bandicoot Wii rumor, calling it "rubbish."
