Famitsu’s 30th anniversary: Crash Bandicoot featured in Kimihiko Fujisaka’s illustration


Crash Bandicoot was (and still is, to some degree) popular globally, but his popularity in Japan has always shined and sorta polarized some people due to how unpredictable but well managed it was (Kudos to Sony and Universal for that).

Recently, we got a tidbit (that got retweeted into our Twitter profile) from RedMakuzawa that Famitsu has featured a new illustration featuring Vivi, Crash Bandicoot (with two more), drawn beautifully by Kimihiko Fujisaka to celebrate Famitsu’s 30th anniversary, we gotta also point out that Crash’s popularity was also researched by Jim DeLaHunt, a student in Standford University, examining some aspects of how Crash Bandicoot was brought to Japan and reasons for popularity in there. So overall, it is a nice gesture from Fujisaka and the people at Famitsu and we would like as fans of Crash (and Japan) to express our happiness and appreciation for that 🙂
