Crash Bandicoot may be a total wumpa fruit chomping goober, but he’s our goober. Learn how he came to be in The Crash Bandicoot Files.

This upcoming book is a deluxe hardcover reproduction of Naughty Dog’s original developer’s bible. Sure, there’s some serious history on Crash, from inception to his premiere on the PlayStation. But there’s also plenty of knowledge about Cortex, Aku Aku and all your other favorites heroes and villains.

It’s full of original concept illustrations and a foreword from Crash’s creators on how the bandicoot went from the Sony’s answer to Mario, to unforgettable video game icon. You can find it on Amazon for just over $20, and it’s even eligible for Prime shipping.
